Goldspot pens posted some videos from their trip to Germany visiting Pelikans factory and an interview with the head of marketing. I really enjoyed them and thought people would want to know!

I still want a '30's full tortoise....that's special enough for me.


German vintage '50-70 semi-flex stubs and those in oblique give the real thing in On Demand line variation. Modern Oblique is a waste of money for a shadow of line variation. Being too lazy to Hunt for affordable vintage oblique pens, lets you 'hunt' for line variation instead of having it.

Glad you enjoyed them :) I guess one of the interviews is from a few months back, but I missed it! I hope to visit their factories one day.

That’s on my bucket list too but no time soon I’m afraid.
