  1. Hey everybody! Here we are, my first post after lurking for a while on this great forum. I'll just start by listing the pens that I currently own and quick thoughts on them to give an idea of where I'm coming from: Lamy Safari (F) - This pen is nice and I use it as one of my main pens for everyday writing and work (college student). This is also the first pen I bought myself. Sheaffer Prelude (M) - This is the pen that got me pulled into this great hobby. I actually found it (sorry to whomever was the unlucky loser of the pen!). I like to use this for general writing, but also for some work as well. The nib is pretty smooth which is nice, but the line is a little thicker than I truly prefer. *Cheap Chinese Pen - I got this because, well, I'm not really sure why, but compared to the other pens I have the quality is just awful and I don't use it at all anymore. Parker "51" Special - This was given to me by my Granddad because he had no use for it and wasn't going to use it. I like the way it writes and it's definitely one of my reliable workhorse pens. I had to do a (mostly) full disassembly and cleaning to clear out the breather tube to get it working well again. Sheaffer "Flat Top" Lifetime Nib - Also given to me by my Granddad. When I got it, the sac was shot as to be expected, but I ordered another one, repaired it, and now it works, mostly. I do enjoy using the pen, but due to flow issues, I have cleaned it and put it away for now. No matter what I do, the nib invariably floods and I get the occasional drop of ink on the page. I'll work it out eventually, but for now, it's on the sidelines. Plus, I have a pretty decent selection of bottled inks that I enjoy rotating through my pens. Now to the matter at hand. This summer I will be getting an internship at an engineering firm (I'm majoring in EE). This is going to be my first ever job and I'll be getting my first ever paycheck in a few short weeks. I figured that to commemorate the occasion, I would just completely blow my first paycheck on various things, one being a "nice" fountain pen. I've been looking around and I really have become hooked on the look of Pelikan pens, especially the versions with silver/chrome/whatever material it is trim. Basically, I'm asking the opinion of members on which specific pen in the line they would recommend for me. I know I don't want that M1000 monster, but I'm not sure whether to turn to the M800 or the smaller M600. I like the idea of going bigger, but at the same time, I do like to keep some sanity and I'd like to be able to use it reasonably. What saith thou? Of course, if you think there may be better options as well, don't hesitate to add those! Whew, that was a lot, thanks a ton for any suggestions or ideas!
