sub_bluesy posted a topic in Fountain & Dip Pens - First StopI had heard rumors of the cap and pen body coloring not lining up but figured I would be able to sort it out if it was an issue. At least be able to line the cap and body up to an acceptable arrangement. Ive had to re align many new Omas pens that the facets did not align so I was not afraid of the Pelikan if alignment was needed. Well I was wrong.

Meet the new Pelikan Souverän M805 Ocean Swirl. This new Special Edition has been created using a unique material that gives each piece an spectacular appearance evoking the ocean's swirls. Exposing it to light you achieve brightness and depth. As it happens in the deep of the ocean light tones alternate with darker touches, reliving its lights and shine. Each instrument in this series is unique. Cap and rings are palladium plated and the fountain pen features a 18K gold nib rhodium plated available in EF, F, M and B. The collection will be available in fountain pen, ballpoint and roller.
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.
