Pen Boutique sent me marketing email nine hours ago telling me it's the last chance to secure the Pelikan Souveran M101N Special Edition fountain pen in 'Vintage Red' (conveniently not calling the colour what Pelikan calls it officially?) at a reduced price for Valentine's Day, for US$455 not including international shipping to Australia – that's another US$48.07 minimum in delivery charges.

 

Let's see.

 

FPnibs.com is offering the same pen – with Bold nib only, probably the last unit(s) in stock – for €271.90, including free international shipping (to Australia, at least, but I think it's for anywhere else too). The choice of nib width is limited, but then Pablo can regrind it for you for a mere €14.90 additionally. The total of €282.33 comes to US$318.56, orA$450 if you're in Australia, at the current exchange rates.

 

That pen is not my cup of tea, but I'm sure there are Pelikan fans and/or collectors Down Under, so hopefully someone can benefit from this. I'm always happy to promote whatever is a good deal for Australians inclusive of delivery (and tax implications); free international shipping is of course appreciated, but so are simply reasonable delivery charges. 

 

Disclaimer: I'm not affiliated with either Pablo or Esther, and I can't even say I'm a satisfied customer, because the one and only order I ever placed with FPnibs.com (recently) was cancelled. Disappointing in that regard, but I'm grateful that Pablo checked the pen while working on the nib for me, and discovered a crack in the pen such that it was unsaleable.

As always:  1. Implicit in everything and every instance I write on FPN is the invitation for you to judge me as a peer in the community. I think it's only due respect to take each other's written word in online discussion seriously and apply critical judgment.  2. I do not presume to judge for you what is right, correct or valid. If I make a claim, or refute a statement in a thread, and link to references and other information in support, I beseech you to review and consider those, and judge for yourself. I may be wrong. My position or say-so carries no more weight than anyone else's here, and external parties can speak for themselves with what they have published.  3. I endeavour to be frank and truthful in what I write, show or otherwise present when I relate my first-hand experiences that are not independently verifiable. If it is something you can test for yourself and see the results, I entreat you to do so.
