  1. Hi, I know that we have a thread here for posting our latest additions to our flocks but I think we could also use a thread where fine folks here could show off their collection by posting family photos of their flocks in their entirety and in their most recent state. I will start with mine dated today... the posted ones are my EDC and desk pens.

    Is this a Pelikan?

    The seller doesn't give any details on the description other than it is a Pelikan (?) and the photos are not really helpfull. I believe that the cap and the nib/feed are indeed by Pelikan. But the main body with the long striped ink window in combination with the cap and the exposed nib make me have my reservations. At least it's not a model that I am aware of

    Pelikan Pitting Repair

    After more than a dacade of regular use, my Pelikan pens have developed deep pitting corrosion at the gold ring at the nib end of the section. I wrote to my original supplier and they gave be contact details for an approved repair service. This did not give me a fixed price to replace the ring but requested the pen to be sent to them for a repair assessment. The charges for just the assessment and post and insurance have put me off completely. I decided to have a go at a repair myself starting on an older, cheaper pen. I started by cleaning and getting as much of the dark material away from the holes. The next step was to deposit copper into the pitting using a basic electroplating kit and copper solution. This took several layers and rubbing back to get level with the original gold plating surface. I then decided to increase the protection of the base materials with a layer of nickel plated over the copper and hopefully thick enough to avoid porosity. This layer looked quite dull at first but eventually became brighter after polishing and replating a few times. The final step was to reapply a decorative gold plating layer and get the surface back to the original bling. I have used the pen plating kit before for decorative restoration but this was the first attempt at filling the pitting craters. I feel more confident now. I will use the M600 for a while with the 4001 ink and see how it survives before attempting the process on my M800, which has a rough edge and one deep corroded pit hole.
  7. While trying to fill a Pelikan Go! the piston just turned off right into my hand! It is not my pen, but I have permission to re-glue the piston. Is this safe to do, and if so what type of glue should I use? The pen is plastic. Thanks.

    Brilliant Brown - Pelikan 4001®

    The 4001 ink is a well-established brand by Pelikan from the very first beginning of the company. It was first mentioned in a price-list from 1897 and proved its worth within all the years. Ink 4001 was registered as a number only, during years there was plenty of colors on the market. However in recent years the line didn't change at all. Happily Pelikan decided to invest not only in Edelstein line but also in 4001 (much cheaper) line and introduced new ink (Dark Green) in january 2016. You may find it interesting that Pelikan 4001 are the only inks that can be bought practically in every B&M store in Poland. At the moment the line consists of Blue - Black Brilliant Black Brilliant Brown Brilliant Green Brilliant Red Dark Green Pink (cartridges only) Royal Blue Turquoise Violet Brilliant Brown is the first ink I ever bought in a bottle. It has special place on my shelf. It's not he best brown ink ever made but it's more than decent. In this price range it's rather hard to beat.

    WTB M2xx black piston filler knob

    Sorry if this is not the right place, apparently I can not post on the Mall forum. My daughter broke the filler knob on her Pelikan M215 Lozenge; any suggestion about how to find the spare black knob (or the complete filler assembly) and try to replace it (I know it is press-fit)? The local b&m shop told me: You can leave the pen here, we ship it to italian Pelikan HQ in Milan, they ship it to Hannover where they will replace the complete body (with a different one, as your pen is out of production). It will take 80 EUR and 4-6 months. Considering a new M200 cost 100-130 EUR this solution does not make much sense (so in the meantime I purchased a new pen for my daughter 😉). Thank everybody.
  12. I posted it also in the Pelikan forum, but I thought the topic is also perhaps relevant here. I have recently received a Pelikan M400 replica from Mr Zhuang, who is a well-known pen customiser in China. The pen cost around 500 GPB body only, so if you are going to purchase a genuine Pelikan nib unit you will be looking at around 100 to 200 extra. Including shipping and tax, this puts the pen in the price range of a Toledo M700. However I have to say it is worth the money. The workmanship is fantastic, the decorative cap and blind cap rings are all separate pieces screwed onto the main body and they are also titanium oxidised to a golden colour. The barrel and section, caps and the entire piston mechanism are machined out of a solid titanium alloy stock, then hand polished. The piston uses two o-rings to function as the piston seal, there is an extra o-ring sealing the section and the barrel. The only other non-titanium parts on the pen are the Pelikan nib unit, and a plastic inner cap ensuring a tight seal when the pen is capped. Everything can be disassembled, and Mr Zhuang had kindly supplied me a wrench for the piston, which is fixed by left-handed screws like M800, but smaller. This tool is really useful for disassembling my M101Ns too, given the TWSBI wrenches are too wide for those. The pen is a faithful copy of the original in terms of dimensions, perhaps only a couple of mm longer. The clip is hand forged using titanium, then oxidised to gold colour. Because it is hand forged in his small workshop it was not possible to reproduce the Pelikan beak. However the overall shape was done nicely and does not look out of place. Given corrosion resistance of titanium alloy, this pen do not have a plastic inner barrel. Ink comes into direct contact with the metal barrel itself. Titanium alloy TC4 is virtually immune to any acid or alkaline attack, at least in the range of all fountain pen inks we can think of, including Parker 51 and Superchrome. The pen weighs 46g, which is quite heavy, but understandable given it is essentially milled out of a solid titanium bar with thick barrel walls. Writing with it I felt it to be more comfortable than a Lamy 2000 SS. I am usually a light pen person, and prefer full resin pens, but this pen for some strange reason do not feel heavy in hand. I attribute it to the shape of the Pelikan section and the overall balance. I wrote unposted. The pen can be posted but it will become back heavy. The only negative would be that it has no ink window. But it is not a big deal because 1) the pen has a ink capacity identical to M400, which is respectable. 2).the way Pelikan feed is designed, which has a big buffer exposed outside meaning that I can turn the piston slowly until I can see ink rising in the buffer, and then turn the piston back down. This allows me to accurately determine how much is left in the pen. Overall, highly recommend if you want to buy yourself something special. Mr Zhuang makes titanium replicas of other brands too, Montblancs, Parker 51, etc. He also makes titanium piston replacements for Pelikan and Montblancs. Other than titanium he also works on other metal like stainless steel and silver, I am considering a full sterling silver Parker 51 flighter as my next purchase... PS: In the writing example: Nib: Richard Binder XXF full flex M250 14k Ink: Pilot/Namiki Blue.
  13. I recently purchased a brand new Pelikan M600 (Blue) with a fine nib, which I love, but I’m also interested in trying the medium nib in this pen. What reliable, affordable retailer would you recommend to sell me that medium nib? I’d be open to buying a used one in great condition, as well. Thanks! Gary
  14. As most of you would know, Pelikan is a 180 year old maker of fountain pens and paraphernalia. It had launched its first fountain pen in 1929. Prior to that Pelikan manufactured dyes, inks and office-supplies. This Swiss-incorporated German pen maker is also credited with the genesis of piston filling mechanism with a differential spindle gear, which endeavoured to address the problem of limited ink capacity in fountain pens of that period. Here, the piston knob is also threaded so that it is able to unscrew itself automatically, when the piston is unscrewed, in an outward direction, thus delivering a greater and efficient ink-suction. Hungarian engineer Theodor Kovacs is credited with the invention of the original filling mechanism before selling off the patent to Günther Wagner (the man who established the company) in 1927. By the way, here goes the review of an M1000 on my blog: The M1000 Review In the earlier years, Montblanc is said to have manufactured nibs (especially the one with a heart shaped breather hole in 1929/30) for Pelikan, while Pelikan made inks for MB. Pelikan had already built a brand awareness in the writer’s mind, being one of the major ink suppliers (starting with Iron Galls Inks) in Europe. They eventually launched the 4001 line (non-Iron Gall) line of inks in 1898, which is still produced today. I was introduced to Pelikan with a m200 model pen long back. And yes, I am heavily biased towards two of my Pelikans - one is the M400 white tortoise, other is the blue striated M805. The M1XXX is considered to be the next step to M6XX/8XX, once most of your cerebral logic is destroyed! As with the model numbers, there is a general increase in nib size, dimensions and price of course, when you move from M4XX to M1XXX. Again, I do love the Souverän M 625 with dazzling sterling silver trims (Ag 92.5%). Having said that, the serene green-striated M1000 reflects and adorns the 1929 classical green-striped design. The green "transparent Pelikan fountain pen" was launched in 1929 by Wagner. It was named so, to reference the transparent ink window. The logos have changed over the years starting from a mother pelican with four chicks to a mother-single chick combination from 2003 onwards. I have learnt something form FPNer sirach’s excellent review of the m805. Incidentally, both of us had posted reviews of our m805s the same day, around the same time on FPN . The mother pelican and chick logo is symbolic of Christ, as when there is no food, the mother pelican is believed to pierce its own breast with its beak, to feed its young of its blood. It is symbolic of Christ sacrificing himself for Man, and is often represented in Christian art. I have taken the liberty to share the picture used by sirach in his review. DESIGN - THE STRIPED TRANSLUCENCY (6/6) The M1000 comes in two standard gold-trims - Green Striped and Classic Black (Green Ink Window), across four different nib widths - EF, F, M and B. The M1005 also came in silver trims of Black/Green Ink Window design, albeit with a dual tone nib. There is nothing like the allure of the M1005 demonstrator, but then there are Raden Sunlight & Starlight models too. The pen hints at a subtle piece of craftsmanship associated with building this writing instrument. Its balance somehow ensures all the necessary weight and nib leverage for comfortable writing. My hand sometimes varies from a light to moderate touch and the m1000 adapts to the change with deft, compared to a m800, partly perhaps because of a more responsive nib. The barrel is made up of highly polished pelikan famed ‘cellulose acetate’ with its diamond cut contours, which partially reveal the necessities like the piston end or ink level, while concealing the unnecessary ones. I feel that this green stripes reveal the ink levels quite well. The pinstripe pattern in the Souverän series is nicknamed Stresemann derived from Gustav Stresemann, the Chancellor of Germany for his famous striped trousers. The green stripes innately reflect both light and dark while preserving a formal appearance of the souverän as the gold plated trims continue to stand out. The translucency is subtle but useful at the same time to note ink levels. The dazzling green stripes reflect back greens between pine & emerald with ambient light, soothingly to your eyes.. The barrel is silky smooth. The golden gleam is matched throughout the pen starting from the famed finial and the clip, through those concentric bands in the cap, before finally converging with the dual piston rings. While the white tortoise plays with light with phenomenal efficiency, the green & blue stripes seem to have held their own conservative thoughts. The cap feels quite substantial and unscrews with a single turn, revealing a dazzling two-tone nib. The grip reveals another knot of golden glitter, towards the section end, where the big dazzling nib unit is screwed in. Two concentric golden bands with a gold plated crown embossed with the pelikan logo, adorn the cap with a signature pelican beak-shaped clip. The thicker bottom band carries the brand imprint of PELIKAN SOUVERÄN GERMANY. The logo on the finial is the one embraced by Pelikan post 2003, that of a mother pelican and one chick, gleaming in brushed gold. The staged pillars of M400, 605, 805 & 1000 glitter with light. FILLING SYSTEM (6/6) A piston filler with a sturdy knob is embellished with two concentric golden loops. Like any other pelikan, it’s imbibed with a system which is usually hassle-free and needs minimal maintenance. The piston end unscrews with three to four rotations and ink is drawn into the pen with remarkable efficiency without any fuss, once the piston is screwed back on. And of course, you can observe some of the live action through the striped windows. A brass spindle connector in the M1XXX provides weight and balance. Everything is glistening gold as you can see the connector nut in the picture. M1XXX fills upto 1.9-2 mL (similar to M800) of ink. These brass piston mechanisms can be dismantled using a 7mm wrench (TWSBI wrench would fit) on the connector nut, in a clockwise direction. On finding the piston mechanism quite snug while filling ink, I did dismantle it to lubricate the piston lip/seal. Although for any other problem, it is advisable to send the pen to Pelikan Germany/Country Authorized Service Center. Also, Pelikan International is quite responsive to facebook messages. NIB - ALL THAT MATTERS (5/6) The nib/feed section is screw-fit and comes in a standard 18k two-tone design across four stock widths - EF, F, M & B. It has the standard pelikan design with the usual convenience of a screw-fit section. Like the cousins, the tall & slender nib is efficient. With a big feed, and a spread out nib it looks forward to propel your writing imaginations and moods. The silver of two-tone finish does converge with the golden trims in terms of glitter and glimmer. The tail end specifies the nib-width and composition (18 C, 75% Au) of the gold-alloy used. Three arabesques diverge along the shoulders of the nib with two of them converging near the circular breather hole. The third curve runs across the tines towards the shoulders ending with the tail end of the nib, outside of which a golden decor runs along the shoulders across the tines, before converging onto the iridium tip. There is of-course the dazzling golden mother-baby pelikan logo, resting above the tail. This one in the picture is a Extra Fine nib and writes smooth and is decently wet. No complaints for this piece on out of the box performance. A big black plastic feed (earlier ones had ebonite feeds) with closely spaced fins ensures a good ink buffer and promises wet and even smoother starts. Even with a dipped nib section, it would write a page. In my experience with Pelikan nibs (both with earlier Bock & now in-sourced), the good nibs usually after running 80 pages of my usual B5 notebook, break in to my liking. This nib being a little different with a characteristic spring and a bit of flex, did break in within a month to fit my writing style. I feel that these days these nibs have started to lay a finer line, owing to user recommendation of the Pelikan community. Fortunately some of the mylars & buff-sticks are saved, thanks to these birds. PHYSICS OF IT (5/6) – RELATIVELY SPEAKING The pen has got the heft in it and I use it without posting. The overall capped length is around 14.6 cm. The total weight of M100X has slightly less than a third of contribution from the cap. The grip diameter is around 1.2 cm and the bit of tapering renders comfort to the fingers. The cap threads are higher up on the section and are non-intrusive for me, since I do not hold the pen very high. It is not a light & small pen and may not comfortable to you at first, I gradually became used to it. The motivation if not anything else, was the Kingsized #8 nib. Uncapped Length ~ 13.5 cmPosted Length ~ 17.7 cmNib Leverage ~ 2.8 cmOverall Weight ~ 35 g (Cap ~ 10 g) Capped and uncapped comparisons with a few of the flock go below for your reference. Top to bottom (m1000, m805, m605 & m400) With an MB149 And an Emperor with the Entire Flock ECONOMIC VALUE (4/6) The M1000 retails these days at around GBP 380 (discounted), although it might be available at lower street prices. I strongly feel that this acquisition was a result of an impulse driven bid on the bay, since I had a low expectation of winning the bid in the first place. Even though it’s one of the phenomenally efficient pens with a high degree of nib appeal, I would still value it as a standardised-good value buy. A part of me which loves Pelikan for the great pens they make, rationally feels that the m1000 being a flagship pen, they need to build up its image akin to an Meisterstück 149, to command a high price and appeal, for it sells much below its RRP across internet/offline shops. May be Pelikan can start with a body/barrel combination solely made for m1000 with a custom designed nib. Then again, I would not be able to buy it OVERALL (5.2/6) Historically for me, I did not like the weight/balance of the M1000 pen. However, with frequent use, I found the balance acceptable and then comfortable!! These 18k nibs have a smooth and wet flow. The m1000 nib has a fair bit of flex (modern bit!) with an inherent softness, since with the bigger size of the nib, there is more room for it to move. Being nice and wet writers out of the box, the Extra-Fine nib puts down a fine line, which takes around 35 seconds to dry Visconti Blue Ink on MD Paper. The pen feels balanced for my hands both with or without pressure and given the tapered profile of the section, it has a good grip. This nib runs a tad finer than say a #3776 medium nib, and with some pressure it leaves a wider line. I have used single fills of Sailor Sky High (now Souten), Montblanc Toffee Brown, Visconti Blue, Iroshizuku Yama Budo/Tsuki Yo inks in rotation, and the pen has performed gracefully with all these inks.

    Homage to M915 Hunting

    Sometime ago, I spotted the Pelikan M915 Hunting limited edition pen on the Pelikan’s Perch website, and although I usually eschew excessive ornamentation, I found it a highly appealing fountain pen. Reading on through the blogpost, however, I was disappointed to hear about the problems with the durability of its lacquered surface when the pen gets any use. Not wanting an expensive “ museum piece” I wouldn’t be able to use regularly, I decided I could admire pictures of it, if looking was all I’d be able to do. Last Winter, however, I came across a custom pen (“Ardennes”) created by Belgian pen maker Andy Deschacht, with interesting silver work overlaid on the pen. The Pelikan 915 Hunting came to mind, and I contacted Andy to see if it was possible to recreate something akin to the 915 but more durable, and with personal modifications. Three months later, the pen was completed, and I received it this last week, and couldn’t be more pleased. With Andy’s permission, I am linking to his professional photographs of the pen, which show it off better than my amateurish attempts, which follow, showing some of the detail of his fine work. A bonus for me, was a video he and his wife made while the pen was being made, showing/documenting the entire process of the pen’s construction, which I found almost as enjoyable as the pen. It has a Pelikan 805 BB nib modified to a stub, and holds about 2ml of ink. Filled, it weighs 35g, approximately 2g more than a filled MB 149 by my own measurements, and less than a filled Diplomat Excellence (46g). The piston is smooth, the pen is well balanced, and does not post. As usual, pictures do not do justice to the artisanship and materials. The detail silver work depicts a stag/elk, a setter flushing pheasant, a Labrador eyeing ducks flying overhead, mountains in the background, with traditional oak leaves and acorns on the bands, and a pheasant tail feather on the clip. The silverwork is flush with the piston knob. The barrel and cap were made from Alumilite Lava Lamp Forest Enchantment. Working with Andy was a delight from start to finish, and I can’t recommend him more highly.
