Ah...Pelikan pens.
 
I agree. These are great pens.
 
I own more Pelikan fountain pens than I am comfortable mentioning. I too am a lawyer and consistently write notes with a fountain pen.
 
The M800 is a consistent work horse. My favorite is the M800 tortoiseshell with a median nib that I had custom stubbed. Of course I have three others with different finishes.
 
I also love the softness of my M1000 with a fine nib.
 
I have found that these pens are consistently excellent, with wonderful quality control.

Yes.  I was really surprised by the softness in the M-1000 nibs and fell in love with them too.

Where does one send a Pelikan 800 for repair? I have a wonderful one that I bought new many years ago, but now it will not draw in into the barrel.

Greetings, dbwilson65, and welcome to FPN!

 

I am fairly new here myself, but what I have found is that, as Internet chat fora go, this place is full of really friendly and helpful people who love to answer these kinds of questions...

 

If you want to do some snooping around to find information on pen repair, this might be a good place to start. It is the "Repair Q&A" forum right here on FPN

 

http://www.fountainp...m/21-repair-qa/

 

Otherwise, if you are in the US you can also try to contact Chartpak, the local Pelikan distributor for repair advice (warning: this can be hazardous to you wallet).

 

Contact Us

Address: Chartpak, Inc.
1 River Road
Leeds, MA 01053
 
Phone: 800-628-1910
 
OR
 
I am sure someone else will chime in soon with some good ideas/advice.
 
Again, welcome to FPN, and we're glad you are here!
