Man, I feel like the purpose of that horrible silver with diamonds M1000 was just to make this one fly off the shelves. Looks pretty awesome, if only I had the $3k for a pen.

Stunning. Surprised I've never seen peacock feathers on a fountain pen before. Nice motif.

Tastes differ.  The design looks like a cheap Chinese pen to me.

While the pen doesn't look to me like a "cheap" pen, I don't find the Pelikan M model particularly well suited to Maki-e.  There is too much distraction from all the trim.  I prefer a more subtle canvas for an ornate Maki-e application.  I guess it is just as well as at this point, I don't plan to spend that kind of money for a pen.  But, each to their own; I doubt they will have any trouble selling them.

Not my cup of tea. I, unfortunately, do not find Maki-e enthralling.

 

It is the same pen with an expensive embellishment, which is fine if the objective is to display it as a work of art. Another one is the Dragonfly.

 

I have not yet warmed to the idea of using a pen as a canvas, perhaps a mental block.

While I love Pelikans, I don’t like this at all, and my wallet is extremely grateful.
