The Brisbane and Gold Coast sellers 'Pen & Ink' offered email subscribers 20% off their full price items fro Black Friday, which made the Pelikan M600 Vibrant Orange competitive with European sellers, especially when you factor in the extra bank charges for a foreign currency transaction. 

So I succumbed to the temptation and ordered one with an F nib for a change... I have a marked fondness for Bs but a bit of variety is a good idea, or so I tell myself... and supported a local business, also for a change.  

Given Joshua's The Pelikan's Perch comments about Ocean Swirl-like pattern variations in his own purchase, I've asked them to check the pen to ensure the pattern is reasonable before posting it so that I don't have to ask them to exchange it.  I don't expect perfection as per the publicity images, of course, but I'd like a pen that is still attractive.

Stock is on back-order so it will be about a week before I see the new bird.

Glenn.

I'm almost embarrassed to admit it, but my lone purchase was a Cross Bailey. I was at Office Max to get some rubber bands, and I'd been curious about these despite all the hate they get. It's a shockingly good pen, though I would not pay full MSRP for it :D

So far, I got a couple of the All-Black Safari's (at 30% off, why not? They make great gifts), a couple random ink samples, and an L2K.

Will probably get more LOL.

Nibsmith -
Pilot Custom 823 F smoke - 10% off and free shipping, free nib customization (I went with an architect's grind to match my favorite nibs, Lamy Z55EF)
Pretty good price for a made to measure pen.
