Was cruising EBAY and found this Pelikan "Ibis" - Wasn't really looking for one. I remember BoBo talking about them in one of his posts. If it didn't have the OB nib I probably would have passed. But I figured why not, I bid pretty low and thought most likely I wouldn't get it. But low and behold - I won! When I received it, I was floored, as it was in fabulous shape, the pictures on Ebay didn't give it justice.
I flushed her out to make sure all was clean and filled up with my "test ink" Waterman Mysterious Blue and "OH MY!" This is the best nib so far -- Wet, Juicy and Smoooth. It has that wonderful OB line variation. I was in heaven!
What I can't understand is why these don't go for higher prices, as they are wonderful pens. I think they are every bit as good as the vintage upscale Pelikans and MB's. Is it that nobody knows about them or did I just get the luck of the draw? Anyway, thanks to BoBo for passing on the information in his posts on vintage Pelikan nibs and the "Ibis"
The pictures are the best I could do with a phone.
