It is a good looking pen.

 

Still, I don't know which is worse: Pelikan and brown or Sailor and sparkles.

I pre-ordered mine to-day. :) It will be shipped Dec. 4th.

I'm glad I didn't buy the smokey quartz, now that I've seen this brown marbled one.

If money didn't matter I surely had bought the M800 Renaissance brown, but it is way to expensive for me.

Being in Germany, mine should be coming my way near the end of the month.....

I don't do, which color the pen then so the ink....but will have to think which ink will go best out of a EF nib.

Perhaps DA Royal Blue.

Could well be that is too wet and makes the EF an F....R&K will get a try.

 

Which inks do you like from an western semi-vintage/vintage width EF nib? Normally I'm after shading in an semi-vintage or vintage F or wider nib.

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.

Montblanc Toffee Brown would go in my M200 brown marble without a doubt.

So the section, cap and blind cap are the same colour as the brown tortoise.

Dr Codfish has some great ideas. A black and yellow M200 would be fantastic for my workshop - it would go with my DeWalt bandsaw and, more importantly, I woudn't lose it! I suspect a lot of architects and construction managers would find that an appealing colourway if they end up on site a lot...


Too many pens, too little time!

DeWalt band saw!?  How can you afford a new pen?  Actually all my small 'on the bench, in the tool tray tools' (the tape measure, utility knife, awl etc.) are bright as they can be, yellow or  fluorescent green and still they disappear.  My trusty 17" band saw is an old 90's era Grizzly.  Would love to have something newer that took less fussing, but there's no place in my shop for a FP.

From the photo it seems that they are returning to the black plastic crown, I very much prefer the metal gold plated one as in the M200 Café Crème.
Why this?

Only the special editions have a metal crown.

If you have a Cafe Creme, you can put the metal crown from that onto this one, if you want.  You just have to disassemble the cap and switch them.  It should be possible....I've done it before with an M800.

We just got the confirmation that Pelikan will launch another fountain pen this year. By late November 2017 the new 
Pelikan M200 Brown-Marble fountain and ballpoint pens should be available.
It seems, that Pelikan is having a brown year...
 
Here are some pictures:

Thats one of the nicer M200s Ive seen in a while. If it werent for my brown tortoise M400 I would probably get it. Now if they did a red marble M200 I would be all in, in a heartbeat.

It's really nothing like a Tortoise....no stripes...I've a '90's tortoise; and a '54 transition 400 and a 500 both of which are a lighter striping than the later models.

I didn't even think of my 4 tortoise pens when looking at this swirly brown.

It is a 'vastly' different look than tortoise...... :D take a third look at it. :)

I wonder how similar this is going to be to the background of the Bayou version that Fountain Pen Hospital released a year or so ago, or the Grand Place? It looks as though it might be brighter.

Looks to be quite a bit different.  The Bayou has significant blue/aqua swirls.

I bouight the bayou and though this is different, it is not different enough to move me past my 'brown Pelikan fatigue'.  I'll save my pen pennies for something that is noticeably different.

 

'Brown Pelikan' conjures a memory from my youth:  I was in central America for several years and spent a fair amount of my leisure time in an open air bar at a marina, drinking cheap local beer (when I could not afford rum) watching Brown Pelikans diving for fish.

Never really liked the marbled M200s. But brown is a colour I like.
