It is indeed a good looking pen. Is the material a solid colour or transparent?

it's solid, under the light you may see some trasparency but I would say it's solid

That is a beautiful pen. I'd think about it if made in 600.


www.nibs.com/blog/nibster-writes/nibs-germany      Info on Bock nibs

 

Due to Mauricio's improved definition of Super-flex, I try not use the term Easy Full Flex, but fail...sigh.

 

Semi-flex is an “almost” flex; not a ‘flex’ nib. It is great for regular writing with a touch of flair. It can give you some fancy; but it is not made for real fancy writing. For bit more of that get a maxi-semi-flex. Both spread tines 3X.  Those are not "Flex" nibs. 

 

Wider than Normal does not exist. Wider than Japanese does. Every company has it's very own standard + slop/tolerance. Developed from the users of it's pens and inks only; not the users or inks of other companies pens. The size you grind a nib to, is your standard only. Paper and ink matter to nib width. Thank god for 1/2 sizes or it would be boring.

I thought I would buy this instantly...but seeing the pics, I'm on the fence. I was expecting much more blue with only a little bit of teal. It seems to be mostly teal. Hmmm.

 

 

Edit: I just ordered it. LOL. If I change my mind in the next month, I guess I can cancel my order or just sell it when it comes in, right? Ah, the rationalizing...guess I need to sell some stuff to fund this...

I was expecting more blue too but it's hard to tell what color the pen will be (though definitely not blue). Some of these pictures are very teal, but the one with the pen on the watch is very green. I imagine the teal is closer to what we should expect which is unfortunate because I like the green more. I'll wait around for a review or two before making a decision.

I like it very much as well. I wonder if its as translucent as the vibrant blue was.

From the pictures that Ive seen, I expect more teal leaning bluish. The photos above look way too skewed towards green and more than what Ive seen from most other product shots. Well only know the truth of the matter when we start getting some real world product shots.

I thought the color was off on that picture as well, as all the other pics I've seen now lean to blue rather than green.

Link(s) please?  The Pelikan's Perch shows this same color and I don't really see any other (decent) pics online.

Hi All,

at the moment this is what we received from Pelikan, if I can get another color I will post it.

I really like the pattern, but I'm uncertain whether I like the colour as well.

At the moment my favourite still is the Vibrant Blue. But I may change my mind when I see natural pictues of this new one.

I'm with Bobo, especially if it turns out to lean more to Teal vs blue.

Why can't product shots just be undoctored? Real life photos always seem to represent the product best. Right now it's all fantasy and guesswork. So silly. It's the same deal in the watch industry. A review from an actual owner posted online with basic pics from a regular SLR camera have sold me more watches than any company marketing shots...

Here is a side by side of the pic posted at the top of this thread on the left and the one I've seen on Instagram, a blog, and 3 different vendor sites on the right.  

 

I'm hoping the color is blue rather than green.

A picture, displayed on a video screen of some sort, is always a gamble. You can get a good idea of  size, dimensions, etc., but color, especially something so subtle as the side by side pics displayed above by Bill H is really a (bleep) shoot.  I realize for us the difference between the blue-ish, and green-ish images is  HUGE, the difference between ecstasy and agony.  But really, on the scale of lint to nuclear war, the difference is really pretty minimal. 

 

For me it does not matter, I don't have a desire for another M800 sized pen in my box, especially at M800 sized prices.

If someone could match the watch they might be able to color correct to match it and the pen at the same time.
