Hi, I am Dinesh. I am using a Lamy Safari from last year. Till then used Camlin 36. Now i am going to purchase a Pelikan M1000. I have asked about it in the introductory post itself. Sorry for this. I am from chennai and i have inquired WilliamPenn store at VR Mall, Chennai and got a quote of Rs.46000/- for M1000. Now chennai has around 70-75% humidity and it is just start of summer. It will increase as summer progresses. I am worried about buying Pelikan as i read a post which is way back in 2008 about barrel rupture may be due to humidity in our forum here. Can i be confident about the pen holding up in a hot and humid chennai. It is going to be big chunk of money invested in a pen, i am worried since i like M1000. Is it ok to leap to M1000 which i think is a top of the line luxury pen? Your suggestions please.
Hi, I am currently in a country with a hot climate and while I normally put my fountain pen in my inside suit pocket, I wanted to know how I could wear it in a hot climate. For example, sometimes I wear it in my shirt pocket (if it has one) and look like the proverbial junior engineer, other times I put it in the placket of my shirt (between the buttons) but when I sweat, I don't want the finish of the pen to be tarnished nor do I want to snag stray chest hair (gross I know but please don't say"wax") . Lastly, although I'm not too keen on carrying anything that looks like a man purse- I'd consider it if it looks cool (no apologies for vanity). So I welcome suggestions from those fountain pen folk inclined towards sartorial elegance to give me options. Thanks in advance.
