For me it is an old Pelikan 400 with an EF nib from an even older 100N. The nib is flexible.

For me it’s a tossup between my white torty M400 and my blue striated M600. I don’t have one but the blue ocean sure looks sweet! For me the color blue, especially a deep blue, is so appealing, it’s the color of the sky and the water. It’s always been my favorite.

Now, your photography is amazing, as always! 

It makes even my least loved bird look great to my eyes.

I love my new M400 White Tortoise, but it's just a touch too small for my hand. I wish I could have found the M600 version.


So, I'd have to say my M620 Athens. All of the M620 series is pretty nice, glad I don't have to chose just one.

Oh, man. That's a hard one. There are so many. It might be one of these ...

The M620 Athens would certainly be in the running, but I gifted that one to my wonderful Greek DIL.



wow.. those are beautiful.

I love my M605 Marine Blue because blue is my favorite color AND it was the very first expensive pen I bought so it has special meaning to me. 

That said, as much as I love the Marine Blue, my newest acquisition is definitely the prettiest of the three I have: M620 Grand Place. I first came across the M620 Grand Place and fell in love with it in 2016. I searched long and hard for one of my own for three years and finally acquired one a couple of months ago. It didn't come with the original nib, but the 14K MCI it has is absolutely lovely to write with so I don't really care.
