  1. The section has become detached from the barrel of my Pelikan M400. Any advice about how to reattach it? Brian
  2. *english is not my first language so bear with me* Hello there, I have recently tried to restore the '50 pelikan 400 with a 14K EF nib from my grandfather and have in my opinion done a pretty good job. The nib however is something I am stuck on. It feels scratchy when held at certain angles and (although pretty rarely) catches on the paper on the upstoke. As you will see on the included pictures, the right tine is slightly bent but the tips of the tines come together ok-ish. I've tried to correct this bend but I couldn't do it since I couldn't separate the nib from the nibunit and the nib
  3. Dear All, I emailed Rick Propas about buying vintage pelikan 400 and 400N series. He gave good offer for the pens. But i am confused and i am also new to vintage pens. Pelikan 400N is costlier and 400 is cheapest. I have seen no post (AFAIK) on buying 400N in FPN. What is special about 400N than that of 400 or a 400NN? Please advice on whether to get 400 or 400N. Thanks in advance.

    My First Pelikan

    Got this set coming from Germany . The seller says the box is from the 80's an the pen and pencil ( 400 / 450 ) are from the 1950's . Does this seem correct ? Nib is an OB. Looks good , hoping for some flex . Being my first Pelikan but not my first piston filler is there any advice I should be aware of specific to Pelikan ? I usually use Quink or Mont Blanc or some ancient Scrip in Ruby and Emerald , anything new you would suggest ? I like the look of an orange on yellow legal pads but have not used an orange n a Fountain Pen , any suggestions ? All input is appreciated . Eddie PS : I got

    Pelikan 400 Kf Nib?

    Dear friends, I recently acquired a new pelikan pen with a very nice nib. I thought it was a normal nib, but upon closser look it is a bit different from a regular F or M nib. As I am not sure I ask for your help on trying to find out what type of nib it is. After a survey of internet pages I think it is a Kugelspitze Nib , a KF or KM nib. Is this correct?? You can keep the pen side ways, in reverse position, the nib keeps on functioning. It is the only nib I have that is able to do this, to keep on going regardles of angle or orientation of the pen. It is a beauty of a nib and pen. Writ

    Softest/flexiest Pelikan 400 Nibs?

    Hi guys, looking at potentially getting a Pelikan 400 sometime soon, but, of course, there are so many differnet ones that have been made. Friction fit script, screw in unit script, logo, logo in 400N, logo in 400NN, logo in 400NN M&K... which ones usually will have the most flexibility (or easiest flex)? I won't be using this for calligraphy or anything, but I do like to put some flair on my signatures and writing every so often and I'd love to have some breathing room for how far I can push it. Thanks! (Also, is there anything else I should know before buying one? This kind of purchase

    Pelikan M400 Nib

    I picked up a W. German Pelikan M400 at an estate sale and it has a broken nib. What would be the best fix for this? A new replacement? Repaired/retipped? Ground to an italic or cursive italic? I currently have a M200 nib in it but have heard that the 400 nibs are nice. Too bad my first one was damaged. Thank you, Rob F.

    Pelikan 400: What To Do?

    Hello everybody! today, I've got my first Pelikan 400. It's a model from the 1950s with an OB nib. In principle I'm not to favourable to O nibs, but this pen was too beautiful. I'm now wondering what I should do first, because I almost don't there to touch it. Should I fill the reservoir with lukewarm water before using it? Thanks for your experienced suggestions!
  10. I love my Pelikan 400 http://www11.pic-upload.de/06.10.14/ebst5h27zqe.jpg http://www11.pic-upload.de/06.10.14/vcmr5kok6f.jpg http://www11.pic-upload.de/06.10.14/edvxrlpragr.jpg
  11. After a few months of regular use I can honestly say that Pelikan 400 is a great pen. It has never failed since It appeared on my doorstep. Now I have three of them in my flock (EF, F and OM nibs): http://i287.photobucket.com/albums/ll125/Arieln_photo/Pelikan_400.jpg By the way, 450 pencil is also as great as the fountain pen itself. Balance and overall quality are on really good level. How about you? Do you use your 400 as a daily carry pen?
  12. Here are my thoughts on the Vintage Pelikan 400 EF Tortoise I recently received. For comparison, I'll rely heavily on my experience with a modern Pelikan M600 Souveran and a Lamy 2000. First Impressions (10) The Pelikan 400 is absolutely gorgeous with the tortoise finish! I love the color variations. http://farm4.staticflickr.com/3818/9689506858_0e1703f821_b.jpg Vintage Pelikan 400 & Modern Pelikan M600 Souveran by astrophoenix, on Flickr Appearance and Design (10) On first glance, the 400 looks just like a modern Pelikan Souveran, only missing some gold bands (which I personally

    Clip For A 400 - Where To Find?

    I was working in Copenhagen this week, and had a very lucky find at a flea market about an hour before I had to leave for the airport. There was a box of cracked, very dirty and broken pens - most nothing special, and some with such bad damage they weren't salvageable (the grubby and unidentified Montblanc with no cap and the dirty great crack all the way along the barrel up into the section made me very sad). But I found a tortoise shell Pelikan 400 in there, stumped up 350 krone (pretty much exactly £40) and took it home hoping the piston mechanism was still working. Got it home, and it wa
