  1. This Pelikan Pen M800 is made of Optical Borosilicate Glass in body and Shappire in cap. However, after I made this pen within 48 hours it just broken(I am a very careful people who never drop a pen on the ground for 10 years) Maybe the only reason to explain it is that thread stroke was too long. At least I know that Shappire & Glass are too fragile to make a endurable fountain pen. So I remove those materials in my transparent pen making :{ Luckily, a friend made a optium museum acrylic pen body with sterling silver clip for me as “backup”. Some good trans
  2. Normally I’m a fan of italian fountain pens. I started off with a Pelikan M800 though – the benchmark of a good, full-size piston filler. I was very satisfied with the Pelikan, it seemed to be everything I ever wanted from a fountain pen, I would never need another one. But later, after falling in love with the looks of it, I ordered a Delta Dolcevita and completely changed my point of view for what fountain pens are about. Handling the Dolcevita was like holding a Faberge egg in my hand, the Pelikan reminded of a free merchandise pen in comparison. The Italian culture has a profound feel for
  3. La Couronne du Comte has just put up several premium Broad-nibbed pens on its specials board for its "Winter Sale". Considering that there are no drop-down options for nib selection, from my experience it means these units are in clearance (or closeout) stock and should be ready to ship. Pelikan Souverän 800 Brown Black €329.75 ex VAT (25.4% off the list price)Pelikan Souverän M1005 Stresemann €379.34 ex VAT (26.5% off the list price)Pineider La Grande Bellezza Gemstones Lapis Blue €263.64 ex VAT (25.8% off the list price)As far as I'm aware, multi-use discount codes (some of which you could f
  4. Following the discussion if someone's best pens are also their favourite pens I decided to compare my highest-pricepoint* pens: -Montblanc 146 EF ('90s pen and feed with a much earlier 14C EF nib); retails for appr. 550 euros -Pelikan M800 F ('80s pen with 18C nib); retails for appr. 500 euros -Visconti Homo Sapiens Lava Steel Midi F (23k Pd dreamtouch nib); retails for appr. 450 euros -Pilot Justus 95 M (14k nib); retails for appr. 300 euros I bought the MB146 from a local collector at a very attractive price. The M800 was a gracious gift from a friend who bought it new in the '80s and who st
  5. http://www.penbbs.com/woshangdetu/penmaterial/133.jpg http://www.penbbs.com/woshangdetu/penmaterial/130.jpg I saw an old topic in a fourm said that Pelikan M800 can be modify into titanium body. It attracted me a lot so I directly find that who can made it. Actually, the 3rd one is made by Grayson Tighe. However, he told my brother said that he is no longer modify Pelikan Pen anymore. But the first and the second one is not made by him. So I want to know who can make Titanium M800 now so that I am willing to buy it.
  6. Hi all, I am about to go after a Pelikan M800 with a Medium nib. Does anyone have some writing samples to show of the Medium nib (ideally compared with the Broad nib, in case you have both pens)? That would really help me move forward with this purchase.
  7. Pen Pit Stop : Pelikan Souverän M800 Grand Place Welcome to the Pen Pit Stop. Here you will find reviews of pens that already have some mileage on them. More specifically, these reviews are of pens that are in my personal collection, and that have been in use for at least a year. I thought it would be fun to do it this way - no new & shiny pens here, but battered vehicles that have been put to work for at least a year. Let's find out how they have withstood the ravages of time. The fountain pen that enters the pit stop today is the "Pelikan M800 Grand Place", a 2016 Special

    Acceptable Price Of M800 Tortoise

    Hello I am a newbie to the fountain pen world, but since the first sight of M800 tortoise even I already have a dozen of FP now, it's still on my mind. I've done some research, but it was two years before, https://www.fountainpennetwork.com/forum/topic/317433-value-of-m800-tortoiseshell-brown/ so as the topic says, what's the acceptable / latest buying price of you??? also would like to know about the price of GvFC Intuition Pernambuco (I just can't resist brown color
  9. Hi everyone, I just got this pen in the mail. It seems to be working well, and looks great for the most part, but the barrel has this defect, an area of discoloring or different degree of translucency I tried to show in the pics below. Are two layers of the barrel becoming separated? Can this be fixed and can it get worse? Any advice is welcome. Thank you!
  10. Pelikan Souverän M815 Metal Striped I did not plan to buy it. Only when Pelikan announced M1005 I got more into M805 Stresemann and M815. And so it is. On pictures it is very similar to Stresemanns – black, silver stripes on barrel, palladium plated rings and clip. But to naked eye it is a different species. Or maybe an alfa-male example of the species. It is like Stresemann but on steroids. It is not the first M815 – the previous one was M815 Wall Street, released in 1995, and was a limited edition. The difference between Special and Limited edition ? “Limited” is limited in NUMB
  11. Hello all, I was lucky enough to nab 12 pens in one go recently. All 12 are by Pelikan, with 7 being fountain pens and 5 being rollerball. I believe the larger pen is an M800 (18kt nib, about 29 grams empty), which is nice. There also appear to be a few pens that are quite old, perhaps 50s/60s? A few say "W. Germany" and I believe those must be sometime between 70s and late 80s, but I am not certain - would love some input from those with much more experience. This acquisition has made my collection significantly larger, and for that I am thrilled. Please note: first 5 pens below (firs
  12. Hi, I was pretty happy with my new Pelikan M805 Stresemann (my second M800 - I couldn't resist the grey stripes!!). But very unfortunately it has developed some nasty stains, apparently *within* the walls of the barrel. I've attached a photo that shows the problem. This is a *completely full* pen. If they were regular ink stains, then I don't think that they would be visible with a filled barrel. This is only the 3rd time I've ever filled the pen. And the only ink I've ever used is Aurora Black!!! Weirdly the ink seems to creep up in the celluloid material..? You can see that especially at th
  13. Hi Guys. I have been into fountain pens for a while now, but I hadn't bought any expensive pens until now. My collection mainly consisted of TWSBIs which I have been very happy with. I worked really hard this year for my 2nd-year exams, and I worked pretty hard over the summer in an internship so I decided I would reward myself with my first "expensive pen". I decided on the Pelikan M805 Stresemann for a couple of reasons. 1 - It looks brilliant. I really like the look of the grey stripes down the barrel. I haven't seen a pen that I like the look of so much. 2 - I had heard that Pelikan

  15. Call me crazy.. is it possible to swap a Montblanc nib onto a Pelikan nib unit? did some research without any findings. Looking at the Pelikan M1000, the nib looks awfully disproportionate while the Montblanc 149 nib looks asthetically more pleasant. My question is.. has anyone tried to swapping a 149 nib in a M1000? or a 146 nib in a M800? I know it's a sacrilege to do/ask that ):
  16. (Pasted from the original passgae from my blog: http://minglau.blogspot.hk/2017/06/pelikan-souveran-m800-renaissance-brown.html) Pelikan Souveran M800 “ Renaissance Brown” Special Edition Review I always tell myself that I don’t need so many fountain pens, I always tell myself that some very cheap Chinese Fountain Pens actually write quite well especially after I fine-tune them to my liking, and I always tell myself that a piston-filler pen is just a springe with a nib attached. I even always tell myself that while I like big fat pens, the M800 is too fat for my small hands. But it turned
  17. The M805 Ocean Swirl is a stunning yet controversial 2017 Special Edition from Pelikan. While my initial view was ambivalent, in actual use, the pen has moved into the same vaunted category as the understated, equally variable, City Series San Francisco. I was fortunate enough to see seven copies among the local DC/MD stores and two additional copies from Pen friends; 9 in total. Particular thanks goes to Pen Boutique for helping me land mine. Pattern and Color Distribution: Some posts seem to hint that some pen copies may have "nearly" 100% blue-green and others verging on total black.

    Pelikan Ocean Blue In Atlanta

    A quick piece of information for any Pelikan lovers in or near Atlanta. I visited Artlite a couple of days ago, on 9 August 2017. It's at the Lindberh Plaza, a 10-minute walk from the Lindbergh Center transit stop (and of course there's lots of parking). The store has a number of Pelikan pens at reduced prices - particularly including one M800 Blue Ocean with a medium nib. It is pre-owned, but looked in perfect condition. No affiliation: I encounted the store whilst visiting the US for a conference and found them to be friendly, with a decent selection. I was very, very tempted by the Blue

    Pelikan M805 Dry Nib

    I purchased a new Pelikan M805 last week with Broad nib and is the most expensive pen i have ever bought. When i received it, the pen wouldn't write. Once i managed to get the ink flow by priming the feed, it started writing with out any issues. There were few skips in the horizontal strokes some times. But every time i cap the pen, it would refuse to start again. And i also thought the nib wrote dry for a Broad nib. Since the nib had this very Glassy feeling on Rhodia paper, i thought it could be over polishing. I am always reluctant to take any nib to micromesh because i always manage to g

    M 800 Renaissance Brown

    The day before yesterday news broke about a new M800 Release, the Renaissance Brown. The Pelikanperch has a interesting article about the new release and is quoting some sources. Just wanted to add that The Couronne du Comte has an interesting offer until April 12 using KINGPELIKAN. For us outside of Europe (no VAT) it boils down to EURO 335.- (or around 360.- USD) shipping included. No affiliation
  21. Hi All, I noticed recently that my M800 Renaissance Brown doesn't have an inner cap, which I suppose makes it more prone to ink drying. All my other M800's including the Grand Place have it. So is this normal, or is it a defect on mine? Thanks in advance
  22. This is the very first I've seen of the m800 special edition, "Royal Gold" in raden. It was in my instagram feed today via a Dutch retailer: https://www.instagram.com/p/BThuwOgBW8x/?taken-by=penman_nl It looks great -- but eager to hear more. I'm guessing as this is a very limited edition, it is not the m805 hinted at in other posts and anticipated for the fall.

    Pelikans' Disassembly

    I currently own a lovely Souverän M800 blue stripe, as a newcomer to Pelikans, I'm wondering if all Pelikans(both modern and vintage) can be fully taken apart by using the same method as the M800(TWSBI wrench for the piston, nib/feed can be unscrewed, and be knocked out from the collar)? (Discussing Souverän MXXX and their ancestors such as 400NN) I've read about rare fiction fit nib units, but that doesn't seems like a huge difference? My purpose of this question is that I feel more confident in spending money getting a pen that I know for sure that I can clean the pen thoroughly, apply g

    M805 Stiff Nib :(

    So I think I have been spoilt because early on in my fountain pen hobby I bought an M1000 and it has a great nib. I have always loved demonstrators though and so recently I bought an M805 thinking it would have as soft a nib as the M1000. It really is NOT! At most the pressure makes the nib slightly wetter, but it is safe to say that thing has no give. I am not sure I am enjoying that pen as much as I thought I would. I am assuming that Pelikan are pretty consistent with their nibs so the one that I have is representative... but I have to ask... is that the case with all the M800/805 nibs
