At Pelikan Hub in Wrocław last night, I was able to try a couple of Moonman pens (and other Chinese brands), the Wancai Mini and the one that's tapered on both ends, also an eyedropper (don't know the model number but it resembles a F-C Pocket 66).
I've seen video reviews of these pens and read the long-ish thread about the Mini here and was tempted, but... I always closed the browser window when it came to "add to cart" time.
I must say, these pens were lovely! They looked good and felt good in the hand, and I loved the EF nibs. The Mini especially impressed me, because it was so comfortable to write with.
So, yeah, finally ordered one today.
As for Pelikans... Artur our Hub Master showed me his 815, the metal-striped beauty. I'm down to one beater Pelikan, an old 150, and maybe four steel nibs, but I agree with Artur that the 815 is the most beautiful Pelikan. I think I like it even better than the Gaudi. (But I'm not planning to buy one. I'll just enjoy its beauty from afar.)
