    M200 Smoky Quartz

    Noticed an announcement in the Marketplace section of FPN for the new Pelikan M200 Smoky Quartz, available for pre-order and due to ship in August. Nice looking, dark brown translucent pen, darker than the amber one from awhile back. What do you think? I'm not sure I will pre-order it, but I will definitely buy one. Loving the ink too, which kind of surprised me, being a fan of Brilliant Brown.

    Classic M200 With 18K Two-Tone F Nib

    First, I know absolutely zilch about Pelikans. I’ve been working my way through an estate of ~500 pens and I’m into the P’s. So, I’ve been wrestling with this M200 off and on for about a week, it was clogged with ink, the piston was locked and finally the piston pulled out the back end. That’s not supposed to happen so, on go the magnifiers, switch on the lights and $#!+!!, there is a 15mm crack in the barrel (now I know why this pen has been giving me grief). I’m about to throw the thing in the parts box and that's when I notice that this pen does not have a gold plated steel nib. It has

    Moisture Inside Barrel (M400/m200)

    Hi, I recently discovered I have quite a lot if moisture inside barrel of my M400 (behind piston in the shaft area). I have this pen for about 2 months now and cleaned it ca 4-5 times - with nib unscrewed and pen body under water tap. Is the connection between filling knob and barrel supposed to be watertight or is this normal? Problem is on M400 the piston part cannot be easily removed, unlike simple unscrewing on M800 so I cannot simply wipe it with paper towel. Do you have any proven methods or suggestions how to get rid of it? Leave the pen with filling knob fully unscrewed for few days

    New Pelikan M200 Brown-Marble Fountain Pen

    We just got the confirmation that Pelikan will launch another fountain pen this year. By late November 2017 the new Pelikan M200 Brown-Marble fountain and ballpoint pens should be available. It seems, that Pelikan is having a brown year... Here are some pictures: Best regards Fritz Schimpf
  5. Hello all, Just a quick word of caution ! Just found that I properly cracked the section on my M200 classic by screwing in the nib unit too much. I was only using finger power, so surprised I could do this much damage. Only noticed when my fingers started getting really inky! There doesn't seem to be a stop mechanism to prevent this, and I was trying to screw it in further to remove some creaking sounds (from too much play of the unit) when I wrote. Perhaps there was another issue at work? So just to highlight that one needs to be careful! [edited for clarity]

    Astonishing Price For M200

    You, too, can own your very own Pelikan 200, with italic nib. Buy it through Amazon UK, and it can be yours for only a shade more than GBP2,637 (+P&P). Hurry: there are only three left!

    Asa Namenlos Review

    Introduction The story of this pen begins ironically with the story of my perception of a completely different pen brand which happens to be Pelikan. For quite some time there was a lot of enthusiasm in the “Fountain Pen Pals India” WhatsApp/Telegram group with people espousing the greatness of the brand and how Pelikan pens were the next best thing to sliced bread. I have been known to have a healthy dose of skepticism against any form of brand adulation and for some reason I found it very difficult to accept a steel nib lightweight M200 as being a much better pen than a Sailor 1911 standard

    Café Crème With Gold Nib?

    Hello all, I'm looking to buy my first Pelikan, and I really like the look of the M200 Café Crème, but I just cant justify the price for a non gold nib. What i'm wondering is if they ever released any cafe cremes with solid gold nibs and if so how much it would cost me to get my hands on one. Thanks!

    Yellow Pelikan M200?

    I'm trying to hunt down a yellow Pelikan m200 like the one in the picture below, and I was hoping one of the members here might have a lead on one. This pen is going to be an EDC gift for a friend, so I'd prefer to track down the less expensive Galeria Kaufhof version rather than the rare Critroenpers Limited Edition, but I'd honestly take either one. Any help would be very much appreciated. Thanks! http://image.rakuten.co.jp/hunnyhunt/cabinet/pelikan/pelikan-m200-yw1.jpg
  10. I had bought the m200 cognac with its stock Italic nib to replace my old rotring ArtPen. I have to simultaneously admit that the only reason for going with an Italic and somewhat flexible nib was to try it out and learn something new. Below is a link to the review on my blog: Pelikan M200 Cognac Review So here it goes. The cognac was launched last year as a special edition and the dazzling golden hues allured me. These were quite vibrant compared to the earlier tones of a lighter Amber demo. DESIGN - LET’S DRINK TO THAT (5/6) The m200 cognac shimmers in honey gold and its golden loops

    Would The Pelikan M200 Be Too Small?

    Hello! I want to bite the bullet and get my first Pelikan! I really like the look of the Congac M200 Demonstrator, and was thinking of getting this, or maybe the new Amethyst! However, my only concern is that a lot of people say these are small pens. Now when I purchased my Pilot Prera, I didn't expect it to be that small! I can write comfortably with it posted, but I wouldn't write with it unposted. I usually have a tendency to reach out for heftier and/or longer pens over it, such as my Platinum 3776 Century, Lamy Safari or even my Pilot Metropolitan. In this picture, the M400 looks re
  12. Morning All, Just a quick comparison of the two fountain pens I use for work on a daily basis. Two similarly sized pens, both from quite different price points. The Pelikan M200 Cafe Creme and the Montblanc Hommage a Frederic Chopin: Although both write very smoothly, but you can feel the difference in the Montblanc; partly in its extra smoothness and definitely in its extra weight. It is the better finished of the two, with nice touches like metal threads when you separate the pen's body. They both start instantly, and only suffer the occasional an small skip if I'm writing very q

    M200 Café Crème - First Pelikan

    So my first Pelikan is on its way to me, an M200 Café Crème. I want a pen to use with orange ink to highlight key points from the copious notes I make every day and to mark up documents with notes and amendments. It is about the same size as the Montblanc Meisterstück Hommage à Frédéric Chopin I use most of the time, so switching would be easy enough. What's more, I just love the design and colouring of this pen. Very much looking forward to it arriving and putting it to use. As something else to look forward to, I think my wife will be getting me a lovely blue M800 for my birthday i

    Unusual M200 Red Striped?

    I just received an unusual M200 or M250 (nibs can be swapped) with red striped binde. See the attached photos. New Style, printed 2 chick captop logo. Anybody has ever heart of it? ...or what other model or Frankenpen could it be?
  17. Am I doing something wrong or something is not quite right with the nib? This is my first fountain pen, sometimes its writes sometimes not. Am i missing the sweet spot or what? Im not holding it too high, and not too low, and i try to keep the nibs top part up, its not on the right sight and not on the left, its at middle. And still no ink comes out. Sometimes if i find a point its okay, but its so hard to find that again. Its my fault or the pen's?

  19. I have a Pelikan Demonstrator which came with the M200 Fine nib. This nib is steel with gold plate. I decided to see what the M400 nib would be like and ordered an Extra Fine nib knowing that gold nibs write slightly broader. I have been extremely disappointed to say the least. The 14c M400 EF nib writes like a broad nib. The lines are wide and it is annoying since it is suppose to be an EF nib. I contacted Chartpak and did a nib exchange and the replacement seems to be as broad. (which makes me sceptical if it was actually replaced). My question is, has anyone else had similar experiences

    M150 Nib On An M200

    I am new to Fountain Pen Network and this is my first time posting anything so if I post this in the wrong spot or do it the wrong way, please feel free to correct me. I recently purchased a Pelikan M200 from my local pen shop. I had wanted one with a medium nib for some time and, as a college student, the decision to spend more than $100 on a pen was not an easy one. They didn't have any with medium nibs in the shop at the time or have any medium replacement nibs for the M200 so they took a medium from an M150 and put it on an M200 and gave me a free bottle of Diamine Presidential Blue (whic

    M200 Mold Lines?

    Hi all, I am looking for a classic pen for everyday use. Years ago I felt in love with fountain pens with a Parker 21 that I got from my grandfather. Then I had a Parker Sonnet and, after this one I have just been using pens that I never felt that they were "my pen". So I am still looking for a pen that I could consider a 'soulmate', using the word I read in one of this forums days ago, which really represents what I am looking for. Here is the question. My first option was the Pelikan M200. Certainly classic, good size and weight for me, piston filler, changeable nibs, reliable writer...

    Pelikan M200 Gripes

    Just over a month ago, I got a Pelikan M200 with a broad nib. I like the pen as a whole, but I have quite a few gripes. I don't mean to rant, I'm just stating some of the things that have been bugging me. Sorry M200 fans. 1. It's way too light. I didn't think this would bug me, as I don't judge pens by their weight. However, the M200 doesn't feel comfortable in the hand. The grip and balance are fine, but the weight makes the pen feel cheap and unpleasant. That's my experience, anyway. 2. Hard starts. This may just be in my case. My broad nib may have baby's bottom. Very disappointing and gr

    Disappearing M200?

    Whilst writing with my trusty M200, I started thinking about looking up how much a new one costs, since you can never have too many, and the green marbled one would make a nice companion to my black one. You can imagine my surprise then, in discovering that many online retailers, including the one I bought it from, did not seem to stock the M200 any more.I wonder if Pelikan is pulling it off the shelves to replace it with the P200, which I remember them promising not to do in a Facebook post. After all, most retailers I checked did seem to have the P20X family in stock.
