I've got pretty much all I'm directly interested in WRT Pelikans at this time:

Would like to get a blue M805 at some point (I think I like blue the best) but for now I'm quite happy with the options available to me!

That's a very nice assortment.  Reminds me of those colorful chocolate coated candy sticks.

Thanks Bill! The Grey was the most expensive of the bunch too!

Nice, like the blue stripped one a lot.....and I can think the gray costs a lot. I somegied my swirl green 100n.

 

I do really like my Pelikan green stripped MP 450....I'd never liked one until then....must have used it for a month with out touching a fountain pen


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.

Thanks Bo Bo. WWII era pens from Pelikan and MB aren't always easy to find. I saw some 100nn's (I think) from after the war but wanted a war era pen. The history of it all is fascinating to me.

Great collection!!

I've gone for just the higher end range, as I love the bigger nibs and the softness they provide.

I've got an M1005 demonstrator, an M1000 green straiated, an M800 Brown tortoise, and a 400NN. The only one I'd now consider buying are a blue striated M800/805, or a Toledo because they look phenomenal!

That's a very solid collection.  Pelikan makes a great pen.

Your post prompted me to get out my flock, line 'em up, and admire them. Just makes me smile.

 

Most of them were inked up anyway.
