glad I found you - And I am your new member and maybe contributor to others that are on the quest for nice pens.
I have owned a silver/black Pelikan M805 for ages, it was "the" pen I decided to buy when I was thinking that should take care of any word I write and so my (in my terms) expensive pen should me remind me.
Same as with my watch, that I bought to remind me of how precious time is. (So the watch was precious, too)
And now, all of a sudden and surprisingly I went into growing a M805 family in just 1 week!
By coincidence, I found a M805 Demonstrator that I immediately fell in love with on the bay. The seller lives close by, so I went there and owned this wonderful pen. I was happy, although this pen being a M805 didn't "add" something to the pen I used already.
And while I was at the seller's place, she (owning thousands of pens and even writing books about) told me about the M815 Metal Stripe limited edition that would be THIS special pen arriving soon.
Actually, I ended up with ordering a M815 that arrived Friday.
So I made it to three M805 in one week - And the point is, I feel every single one has a right to exist next to each other.
What do you think, would you buy 3x the same pen - Or do you feel it's three different pens? Please find my picture attached
Well, at least I have different nibs, M and F on them..
Let me know whether this is the start of an addiction or still normal?
Best greetings for next week, Stephan
