    Strange duo, any idea?

    Hi there everybody! For those of you who know your Sheaffer pens I could really use some knowledge here. My mother has had these 2 mechanical pencils forever now & has been asking me to get information on them & to possibly sell them for years. I finally attempted to do just that for her but it turns out that I had underestimated the Sheaffer company completely. I've found myself certain on a specific model just to find myself back to confusion after descriptions/other models. The 2 pencils to begin with are not of the same set- they both most likely belong to different fount
  2. Hi FPN, I have been lurking for quite a while but this is my first post on here. I currently own a TWSBI 580 and a Lamy Safari, both in extra-fine, I have been considering purchasing either an Edison collier or a Pelikan m400 pen. I like my nibs to draw quite thin lines having come from Uni-ball pens, and I do not have access to a local store that sells Pelikan pens, I was wondering if someone could provide writing samples for a Pelikan extra-fine nib so I can try to assess the line-width. Thank you for your time, ~Chris
  3. Hi all, im not sure what model it is exactly. Anyone can help me out, and tell me where i can get a collar replacement? here are some images of the pen, when needed: https://www.ebay.at/itm/F%C3%BCller-Pelikan-Kolbenf%C3%BCller-400-Schildpatt-Braun-585-Gold-Antik-Rarit%C3%A4t-Ur-Alt/162963880871?ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT&_trksid=p2057872.m2749.l2649
  4. Maybe it is known to many Pelikan fans already, of the beauty of vintage tortoise shells. However, I was shocked when I opened the parcel and saw my 400 tortoise for the very first time. This is some otherworldly kind of beauty, breathtaking! The tortoise shells change color from light to dark, from honey to blood red. The rest of the pen is in warm brown color, clearly brown, striking and matching perfectly with the tortoise. I inked it with MB Toffee Brown. Here are my two tortoise pens. The 400 cap and knob matches perfectly with the ink. It has a KM nib, marked on the knob. The ni

    Pelikan 400 Gray Or Green Striped

    Early Pelikan 400 with a strange color change Any explanation for this type of color change? The stripes are uniformly gray on the barrel, where it was not covered by the cap and green where they are covered by the cap.
  6. I have a Pelikan 400 tortoise (one of the modern re-releases) with a friction fit piston assembly. The piston got stuck and I assumed there was dried ink around the piston head. Curiously there wasn't. Even after knocking out the piston mechanism I cleaned the barrel with q-tips and there wasn't any sign of ink. I put it all back together, cleaned everything, put grease where grease was meant to be....a problem emerged. The piston nob won't screw down tight to the barrel. When I turn the nob to plunge the piston towards the nib, the piston won't go tight to the end of the pen like it used

    M400 Brown Tortoise

    I'm really looking forward to getting my hands on one of these little beauties! September, here in the UK, it seems. Wonderful!

    If The Size Is Right...

    G'day FPN I know the only real answer to this question is 'try them out!' but all the way down here in Australia there seems to be a scarcity of brick & mortar pen shops, so I'd love to hear from you: Is there any rule of thumb for marrying a pen size to a hand size? theres a lot of talk around the forums of large and small hands, but as it's so subjective what size 'large' hands actually are, and obviously the weight distribution of the actual pen in hand plays a huge part in what makes it balanced or not. the Safari I use at the moment is a little back heavy when posted (those pen

    Softest/flexiest Pelikan 400 Nibs?

    Hi guys, looking at potentially getting a Pelikan 400 sometime soon, but, of course, there are so many differnet ones that have been made. Friction fit script, screw in unit script, logo, logo in 400N, logo in 400NN, logo in 400NN M&K... which ones usually will have the most flexibility (or easiest flex)? I won't be using this for calligraphy or anything, but I do like to put some flair on my signatures and writing every so often and I'd love to have some breathing room for how far I can push it. Thanks! (Also, is there anything else I should know before buying one? This kind of purchase
  10. I am curious about what those of you more experienced and knowledgeable than I am (that would probably be most of you) can tell me about the differences between a pre-1997 Pelikan 600 and a current M600, and also a comparison between the pre-1997 600 and the early 1950's Pelkan 400. The only one I own is a lovely tortoise shell 400, and I do not live remotely close to a shop that has a current M600 or a pre-1997 600, neither of which I have ever held in my hand. Mostly I am intersted in "feel" comparisons, nib-wise and how the weight/size of each translate to in hand feel? I love the 400'

    Old Pelikan Nibs

    Hi all Pelikan enthusiasts, I keep seeing people recommend older Pelikan pens, specifically 400 models, when people are looking for semi-flexible nibs. Are all older Pelikan nibs semi-flex? BEcause I have also seen many videos with older Pelikans, and they usually have exotic (OB) flexy nibs. If anyone has one, please post photos as I am intrigued and am interested in browsing /purchasing one. Thanks, Tom.

    400 Nib Bent

    I have a Pelikan 400 tortoise from the early 1950s. I posted a review here Now that I have a bit more experience looking at nibs under magnification, I've discovered the tines on this extra fine nib were out of alignment and the entire tip of the nib itself is crooked and a bit twisted. I was able to align the tines but the nib is still twisted. Fixing only the alignment leaves the nib very scratchy. Ink flow is very good and I think just as it should be for an EF and even keeps up when I add pressure to my writing to get line variation.It's so scratchy though that I want to get someone to

    New To Vintage Pelikan 400

    Hi everyone ! Recently, I've got a nice 500 from a antique shop.But when I tried to knock the piston unit,I've ruined the barrel.Now I will buy a 400nn brown tortoise parts to replace my 500. Now I have two solutions here 1. Knock the 400nn piston unit out and replace with the 500 piston knob (is it compatible?) 2. Just change the cap and become a 500nn Any another better methods? Thanks
  14. I have owned a 21st century Pelikan M600 Souveran for a couple years now, and I recently received a first-generation, 1950s-era Pelikan 400 tortoise. (I posted a review of the 400: https://www.fountainpennetwork.com/forum/index.php/topic/252129-pelikan-400-ef-tortoise-1950-1954-review/) anyone have experience with both a vintage 400 flex nib and the modern M1000? I've heard the M1000 is the only modern pelikan with a flexible nib. With my fresh vintage nib experience, I'm wondering how the modern M1000's nib stacks up! thanks in advance for your thoughts.
