A new model has been released with an anodized blue aluminum body

 

I ordered one and will report back.

Is it made of aluminium or brass like the rest of them?

I've got the plain brushed aluminum looking one and it's definitely brass with some kind of aluminum-colored coating on it.

 

Just swapped the nib to the bent nib and popped in a Pelikan 4001 Blue-Black cartridge....writes awesomely even with this dry-ish ink. What a sweet pen!!

This one is not that pen. I'm fairly certain this one will be real aluminum.

The finish looks like anodization, not lacquer. Can't anodize brass.

Also, I found this listing https://www.ebay.com...5.c100005.m1851 where the seller mentions a weight of 23g and also mentions that it's lighter than the brass model.

Yep, it's definitely different material.

On the Chinese websites it also says "aluminum alloy" and several buyers who bought both types commented that the blue one was lighter than the brass one.

 

Looking forward to your impressions of this newer version. The weight was my only complaint about the pen, so if the blue one is considerably lighter I'm going to give my silver one away and get a blue one.  :D
