I got this in email from La Couronne du Comte in a newsletter this morning:

(https://www.lacouronneducomte.nl/afb/news-201903-en-dvak1_07.jpg)
 

La Couronne du Comte - 11th Anniversary!
 
Already 11 years ago, we started with the online sales of writing instruments. Now, 11 years after the beginning, we moved twice to a bigger store, our team has grown and we remain at your service as ever! The coming week we will have several special offers, so keep an eye on our newsletter and website.
We will start with a 20% discount on our assortment this weekend
...‹snip›...


One could, for example, get a Pelikan M800 Stone Garden with either a Fine or a Medium nib for the effective price of €297.52 (about A$475 for us Aussies, or US$337), for direct exporting outside of the EU with free international delivery. There are also some Aurora 88 models already on special offer, to which one can apply the discount code in the newsletter.

 

I've taken advantage of such compounding offers on pens that are listed as "SALE: LAST MODEL" in the past, and there was no delay in getting those particular pens shipped shortly after ordering.


Pretending that all fountain pen collectors and/or enthusiasts here are like-minded, or at least find some merit in each others' personal preferences, is misguided to say the least. Having a shared or common interest in the acquisition and use of fountain pens does not mean one thinks that any of the following qualities is essential, ideal, superior, or preferable: wetbroadflex, vintage, piston-fill, transparent, shading, sheeny, and cheap.

EDIT: nevermind--found it in the "Last Model" section.  Thank you!!  It was one of my dream pens, and I've ordered it.  I wish I could get this pen with an IB nib.

Great choice.  thumbup.gif  It is on my buy list.

 

What is the thickness of the grip, M600 or M800?

@1nkulus
Mine is on back-order, I choose the EF nib. Arriving in NL, it has to move again - to Japan.
As soon as I have it, I will comment. But, afair, it is big.

edit:
I asked - it is not so big as I thought - smallest width 9.8mm, largest 11.0mm
For comparison, M600 9.8mm and M800 11.0mm - no warranty for the Pelikan data from the web.
