i bought two PELIKAN M805S both with a fine nib on ama... uk and ama...es within a week.
The black one was in my mailbox less than an hour ago.
One pen, the blue stripped is pretty good, maybe a bit too wet with some sailor inks. That is a normal behaviour with a Pelikan nib.
The other pen, the black one is so dry and unwilling that i have decided to send it back to ama...uk for a refund.
Of course i flushed carefully the black pen, etc...before inking it. Furthermore Sailor inks are very wet inks as can be seen on the photo, at least with the blue stripped one.
Return cost is from my pocket (about 10-12€). Return package has to be stamped, etc...
It is not the end of the world, i will soon forget it.
I just wanted to share my experience.
I hope i have been useful to some.
