I joined the forum some years ago but fell out of the hobby for many reasons.  Over the last year or two I have started to get back into it and thought I would start participating in the board now that I have more time to devote to collecting and enjoying my pens.  I mostly lurked in the past, but didn't speak up.  I've fallen very much in love with the Pelikan brand.  I consider it my favorite of the several I concentrate on.  

 

Just thought I would drop in and say hello here in the Pelikan forum itself, and introduce my small flock.  It was pen cleaning day today, so they're all nice and squeaky clean.  Nice to meet you all!

Welcome back!

 

Your flock may be "small" in numbers, but certainly not in quality!!

Those are some very, very nice pens!!  :puddle:  :puddle:

 

Enjoy them in good health.

Welcome back and excellent choice in pens.  Pelikans are my favorites as well... my oldest M800 is nearly 20 years old and an occasional cleaning and a dab of silicone grease every few years and it still writes like new.  Enjoy!!

Dear @pigeonfarm

 

Gorgeous curation! :notworthy1:

Yowsah! so much beauty on wood but the one on cloth looks like a peacock instead of a pelikan :puddle:

 

I know you fell off the hobby but it looks like you can retire in peace with that lovely gem of a collection.

 

I look forward to your future commentary on Pelikan's current offerings and in the future. :thumbup:

You have good taste..............if you don't mind, do think of vintage semi-flex nibs and even the pens that go with them.


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.

Nice collection! I believe that the vermeil M450 is one of the most beautiful Pelikans out there.  :thumbup:

All very nice pens. You don't mess around!! I would LOVE to get an M800 tortoise, but they are just too expensive these days -- if you can even find one for sale. Hang on to that one...

Ditto. I couldn't bring myself to buy a M450 tortoise either, though I finally ordered a M400 and D400 White Tortoise set for EDC. Rare, expensive pens make me a bit nervous to carry around.

 

So far my lost pens have been acceptable, rather than capital losses.  :blush: Fingers crossed it stays that way.
