  1. Greetings all. I am new to the group and the hobby. Please let me know if this is not the right place to post such a question. I recently purchased a new Pelikan m805 Stresemann with Fine nib. I have read that Pelikans are wet writers (and can confirm this by two other Pelikans I recently acquired in different configurations). But my m805 with Fine nib writes extremely dry. When I apply no pressure to the nib, there is barely a line that comes out. When I apply more pressure, it writes but the writing experience is not particularly pleasant. I use Irochizuku ink. I was wondering if you could give me some advice on how to increase the ink flow and make the pen a wetter writer. An ideal writing instrument for me produces a thin, wet line. Any advice welcome. Thanks in advance.

    Pelikan Edelstein Garnet

    Pelikan Edelstein Garnet In 2011 Pelikan introduced the Edelstein series of high-end inks, available in a variety of colours. The theme of the Edelstein concept is the gemstone – each ink corresponds to the beautiful colour of a gem. The Edelstein line of inks is presented in 50 ml high-value bottles, that are truly beautiful, and worthy of a place on your desk. In this review I take a closer look at Garnet, the Edelstein Ink of the Year 2014, which is now part of the regular Edelstein line-up. Garnet is a fairly bright and well-saturated orange-leaning red. In daylight and in scans the ink’s red tones dominate, but under warm artificial light Garnet definitely shows its orange-leaning nature. This is a decent red ink, that works well in all nib-sizes and on all types of paper. But that’s about it… personally I think there are lots of similar reds about, and there is little to lift Garnet above the pack. Below I give you enough background information to let you make up your own mind. The chromatography shows orange-red dyes and a bit of grey in the mix. The grey tones down the ink a bit, making Garnet appear less vibrant. For red inks, this can be a good thing: a full page of vibrant red might be a bit too much for some. From the bottom part of the chroma, you can already deduce that Garnet is not a water resistant ink. This Edelstein ink can handle all nib sizes with ease, always showing a well-saturated line. I actually prefer this ink with the finer nibs (EF/F), where its presence on the paper is less overwhelming. My personal opinion is that red inks are ok for occasional notes when reviewing/correcting a document, but are too loud for regular writing/journaling. A full page of Garnet hurts the eyes. To show you the impact of saturation on the ink’s look & feel on paper, I made some scribbles where I really saturated portions of a scrap of Tomoe River paper with ink. This gives you a good idea of what the ink is capable of in terms of colour range. Garnet has a low dynamic range, with little difference between the light and darker parts. Not a lot of shading with this ink! The little shading you get is most apparent when using Garnet in dry pens with broader nibs (like the 1.5 / 1.9 calligraphy nibs for a Lamy Safari). I’ve tested the ink on a wide variety of paper – from crappy Moleskine to high-end Tomoe River. On every small band of paper I show you: An ink swab, made with a cotton Q-tip 1-2-3 pass swab, to show increasing saturation An ink scribble made with an M-nib Lamy Safari fountain pen The name of the paper used, written with a B-nib Lamy Safari A small text sample, written with an M-nib Lamy Safari Origin of the quote, written with an F-nib Pelikan M101N Bright Red Drying times of the ink on the paper (with the M-nib Lamy) The ink copes well with a wide variety of paper – it even works well with Moleskine paper: just a tiny bit of feathering, and only a bit of bleed-through. This is an ink that can tolerate even crappy copier paper at the office. I like Garnet just a touch more on the yellow papers in my test set. The yellow background accentuates the orange undertones of the ink, and reduces the contrast between ink and paper, making a page of red writing less loud and in your face. Scanned images alone are not enough to give you a good view of the ink - they tend to exaggerate contrast, and sometimes have difficulty capturing the colour of an ink. I’ve therefore added a few photos to give you another view on the ink. Writing with different nib sizes The picture below shows the effect of nib sizes on the writing. As you can see, Garnet works well in all nib sizes, even the finest ones. I actually prefer using it with the EF/F nibs – the fine line you get tames the ink a bit, and makes a full page of Garnet look a little more palatable. Related inks To show off related inks, I use my nine-grid format, with the currently reviewed ink at the center. This format shows the name of related inks, a saturation sample, a 1-2-3 swab and a water resistance test – all in a very compact form. This allows you to easily compare the ink with its eight direct neighbours, which I hope will be useful to you. Garnet sits somewhere between MB Corn Poppy Red (which is a bit more vibrant) and kyo-iro Flaming Red of Fushimi (which looks a bit softer and more delicate). Inkxperiment – stilt village I’ve put myself a challenge to try to produce interesting drawings using only the ink I’m reviewing. For me this is an incredibly fun extension of the hobby, that continuously challenges my drawing skills. Red inks often have a low dynamic range, and are a real challenge for single-ink drawings, and Garnet is no exception. I therefore decided on a simple pen drawing. I started with an A4 piece of HP photo paper, on which I painted the background using a water-soaked kitchen towel on top of which I painted with water-diluted Garnet. This always produces a nicely textured background on which to paint the subject. In retrospect, I should have diluted the ink quite a bit more… the background turned out to be a bit too prominent. I then drew in the village buildings using a 2-point perspective, and added the stilts and netting with my Lamy Safari fountain pen. Final touches to the buildings were done with a felt-tip pen and fountain pen. The resulting drawing shows what can be achieved with Garnet in an artistic context. Due to its limited colour span, Garnet is best used for line drawings. The stilt village turned out quite well. A pity about the background that should have been softer… well, lesson learned for a next time 😉 Conclusion This Edelstein ink of the year 2014 (which is now part of the regular line-up) has no real technical shortcomings: well-saturated, works with all nib-sizes and paper types. It does lack water resistance though, if you care about such things. All in all a decent red, but personally I’ve seen better ones that I liked more.

    Pelikan nib grinds chart

    From the album: Mercian’s Miscellany

    This is a picture that shows - and explains - the sizes and grind-styles of the various nibs that were made by Pelikan during the 1930s and 1940s. Many of these nib types were still being produced by Pelikan in the 1950s. Pens are no longer produced with nibs in this many sizes/grinds by any major manufacturer. An example of the ‘benign hand’ of ‘Market Forces’ in action. I copied this photo from: https://www.pelikan-collectibles.com/en/Pelikan/Nibs/Nibs/index.html At time of my uploading this image to this Gallery on FPN (2024-04-23), the url that appears on the bottom right of this picture no longer works.

  4. From the album: Mercian’s pens

    My Pelikan M400 in Brown Tortoiseshell, in its clamshell box. It has a 14k ‘M’ nib, and is in very nice condition. It has a screw-in nib, not one of the earliest friction-fit nib units, but its nib design shows that it is from the earlier part of the production run of these pens. This picture shows how very brown its cap and piston-turning knob are. The grip-section is also this colour. In less-bright light they can seem to be black, but they’re the colour of dark chocolate (nom nom nom!).

  13. 1-1.5 years ago there was an uproar about Pelikan and the QC problems with their nibs. In short, the nibs weren't always the size the stamping said they were. Is this still a problem?
  14. 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.
  15. Ink Review : Pelikan Edelstein Olivine --- Ink of the Year 2018 --- In 2011 Pelikan introduced the Edelstein series of high-end inks, available in a variety of colours. The theme of the Edelstein concept is the gemstone - each ink corresponds to the beautiful colour of a gem. The Edelstein line of inks is presented in 50 ml high-value bottles, that are truly beautiful, and worthy of a place on your desk. In this review I take a closer look at Olivine, the Edelstein Ink of the Year 2018. This is a limited edition ink, that could be gone in the near future, although it's not unheard of for Pelikan to change its mind. Be sure to check out lapis's review for an excellent and highly detailed discussion and comparison with other greens. To clear the field: Olivine is not the kind of green that people anticipated based on the pre-release pictures and the images of the mineral circulating on the web (see the thread in lapis's review for a thorough discussion of this aspect). This review will totally ignore this topic, and simply evaluate the ink on its own merit. Olivine is a dark green ink, with very visible blue undertones. I wouldn't go so far as calling it a teal ... the green clearly dominates. But the blue undertones do give it a certain complexity that is quite apparent when writing or drawing. The chromatography of this ink shows a complex mix of dyes, clearly indicating the bright blue undertones hidden within the ink. The result is a very fine writing ink, that can handle all nib ranges without a problem. The ink has excellent contrast with the paper, even when using EF nibs. Olivine also shows of some impressive but still elegant shading, which even shows up in finer nib sizes. Well executed! Overall, I really like what I see on the paper. To show you the impact of saturation on the ink's look & feel on paper, I made some scribbles where I really saturated portions of the paper with ink. This gives you a good idea of what Olivine is capable of in terms of colour range. The ink shows quite some variation between light and darker parts. This probably explains why it's such a good shader. Technically, the ink behaved perfectly, with exceptionally good flow and saturation, and a good contrast with the paper even in the finer nibs. Overall a pleasurable ink to write with. Drying times are quite reasonable in the 10 second range with M-nibs. Olivine copes well with a wide variety of paper - and can even tolerate the crappy ones. Only on Moleskine, the ink looks sickly and pale, and has noticeable feathering and bleed-through. On other papers the ink behaved impeccably, looking good on both white and more yellowish paper. Unfortunately, Olivine shows a total lack of water resistance. Even the slightest touch of water obliterates your writing - see the water test at the end of this review. As such, I don't consider this an ink you can use in the workplace. I’ve tested the ink on a wide variety of paper – from crappy Moleskine to high-end Tomoe River. On each scrap of paper I show you: An ink swab, made with a cotton Q-tip1-2-3 pass swab, to show increasing saturationAn ink scribble made with a Lamy Safari M-nib fountain penThe name of the paper used, written with a Lamy Safari B-nibA small text sample, written with an M-nibDrying times of the ink on the paper (with the M-nib) Inkxperiment – Swamp Lake CastleI've put myself a challenge to try to produce interesting drawings using only the ink I'm reviewing. I find this to be a fun extension of the hobby, and have found these single-ink drawings ideal for experimenting with different techniques. When using Olivine for drawing, the complexity and colour range of the ink can be used to great effect. For this drawing I used 300 gsm rough watercolour paper. For the sky, I diluted the ink with lots of water, which brings forth the blue undertones. For the swamp lake, I used mildly water-diluted ink giving a darker green colour. The yellow/blue highlights were obtained by applying some bleach to the partly-dried ink. Olivine reacts really well with bleach, leaving a beautiful light-blue colour. For the foreground, the castle and the tree accents, I used pure Olivine, painted in with a small brush. The end result gives you a good idea of the colour span the ink is capable of in a more artistic setting. And it must be said, I'm very pleased with the drawing capabilities shown by this ink. ConclusionOlivine might not have been what you expected, but viewed objectively, this certainly is a very good ink. One that writes very smoothly and with beautiful shading. Personally, I also like the colour - the blue undertones add extra depth and complexity to what is in essence a dark-green colour. A pity this ink has zero water resistance. Finally, I was really impressed by the expressiveness of Olivine in a more artistic setting, the colour range that can be obtained is unbelievable! Overall, I'm glad I got myself a bottle of this ink.

  16. Lucked out and was able to purchase two very rare items for my vintage Pelikan collection: a retail luxury pen case meant for the 100 or very early (1938) 100N and the accompanying mechanical pencil set (Etui R), and a NR. 4 pen stand, both in matching silver-mottled black bakelite. Since their manufacturing was limited to just few years (or perhaps to 1938 only) they are exceedingly rare finds. Those silvery bits do not translate that well in photos but they do glimmer in light very nicely. I already had three different variants of the pen stand in black, so this was a really wonderful, and functional addition to my desk (yes, I like to keep them in use).
  17. Pen Pit Stop : Pelikan M600 Tortoiseshell Red 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 arrives at the pit stop today is the "Pelikan M600 Tortoiseshell Red". Pelikan is one of the best-known European pen-makers, with a long history dating all the way back to 1832 when the company was founded in Hannover, Germany. The brand offers both semi-entry-level pens (like the M200 series) all the way up to their flagship M1000 model. All Pelikan pens adhere to the same classical style, and as such are immediately recognisable. I bought this particular pen in January 2021. This Red Tortoise beauty with its rich coral red body and gold trim accents is usually paired with a nice red ink. It is one of my favourites, together with its smaller red cousins from the 101N series – see family picture below. Pen Look & Feel The M600 series are Pelikan’s in-between pens – right in the middle between the smaller M200/M400 and the more bulky M800/M1000 series. I love the entry-level M200/M400 pens: there are some lovely barrel colours to choose from, and although these pens are tiny, they are very comfortable when posted. At the other end of the range are the M800/M1000: for me personally these pens are simply too big. I own one M800 (the Brussels inspired Grand Place), and that pen is definitely too large & bulky for me (which means I don’t even want to consider an M1000). But the M600 has the right size, the right weight, the right feeling in the hand... just perfect! The M600 range didn’t get much love from Pelikan the last decade. OK, there where these yearly variations on white, but those didn’t resonate with me, and I simply ignored them. And then in 2021, Pelikan came out of nowhere with this totally unexpected beauty! The Tortoiseshell Red comes close to perfection for me: a very rich-looking dark coral-red background palette on cap and body, that has a classic feel to it. The tortoiseshell barrel flawlessly extends this colour-scheme with a more-or-less striated pattern of orange-red-black stripes that fits the base colour really well. And finally, the gold trim and the duo-tone 14C-585 gold nib add the finishing touches to this M600’s outfit. The result is totally enthralling, and one of the best designs I’ve seen from Pelikan in recent years. There’s only one thing missing from this pen: the ink window. The pen’s cousins came with an amber ink window that fit nicely into the design. With this M600 I’m unsure about Pelikan’s intentions: did they exclude the ink window for aesthetic reasons (so as not to detract from the barrel’s beauty)? Or did they want to simplify the production process, and cut some costs? I can understand the aesthetics argument, but nevertheless would have preferred an ink window. Without it, you simply have no clue about the amount of ink remaining in the pen, which I personally find a bit inconvenient. Like all Pelikans, the cap unscrews with about three quarters rotation, so it's quickly ready for action. The M600 is a large enough pen for me, but can be posted if you want to – if you have large hands, it might be more comfortable this way. I've got smaller hands myself, and typically use the pen unposted. For me, this M600 is just the right size and weight (i.e. featherweight). The pictures above illustrate the size of the M600 Tortoiseshell Red in comparison with a standard Lamy Safari. The pen is a bit smaller in size than the Lamy when using it unposted, but still a really comfortable writer that is a perfect companion for longer writing sessions. Pen Characteristics Build Quality : build quality is excellent. The pen withstood the passing of time without any problem. After almost two years of use, it looks good as new. One thing I have noted with all my Pelikans is that the piston can develop some friction over time. That’s normal, and easily fixed by applying some silicon grease. Once a year, I unscrew the nib unit and apply some silicon grease with a wooden toothpick to the inside of the barrel. That’s more than sufficient to guarantee smooth gliding of the piston within the barrel. Weight & Dimensions : about 133 mm when capped - and as such still a fairly small pen. It's also definitely a featherweight. If you prefer pens with some heft to them, the M600N model will not be your thing. Posted - the pen becomes about 155 mm long, and fits even larger hands. Filling System : this is a piston-filler that holds quite some ink. The piston is made from plastic, but works really well. Pelikan are known for their excellent piston mechanism. Nib & Performance : the M600 pens come with gold nibs. This one comes with a duo-tone 14C-585 gold nib, that really suits the aesthetics of the pen. The nib unit can be exchanged quite easily, which is a big plus. If you damage your nib or want to use a different size, you can simply buy a replacement nib unit. Beware that these gold nibs are not cheap: a replacement unit costs about 158 EUR (taxes included). Price : I got this pen for 327 EUR, including taxes. A very reasonable price for this stunningly beautiful pen with its golden nib. Conclusion My Pelikan Souverän M600 Tortoiseshell Red is one of the most beautiful Pelikan designs I’ve seen in recent years. A true joy to write with, and certainly a conversation starter wherever you use it. A great addition to my flock, and I’m truly glad that I bought it.

    M800 barrel interchangeability

    I’m wondering if M800 barrels are interchangeable between the old/early West German models (i.e., from late 1980s and early 1990s) and newer/contemporary models. I think that the evolution of M800 didn’t necessarily affect its dimensions over the years but I’d like to check. Namely, my old W. German M800 has some issues with its barrel and I wanted to change it but I keep finding only the newer barrels available. Any advice is helpful. Thanks.

    Pelikan Jazz Fountain Pen

    I did my first really negative review of a fountain pen just in time for April Fools, but I am not fooling! The inexpensive Pelikan Jazz, looks great but it is the most uncomfortable pen I have ever used. It has a very slippery metal section. It is very long, but very thin. The nib is actually pretty nice, but I found it painful to write with the pen for more than 30 seconds. The only way I could actually bare it was to put some electrical tape around the section so my fat hands wouldn't slip. This is sad, because Pelikan makes my favorite pen: the M800, but it is too expensive to use everyday or take to work. I hoped they might make a pen that I could use and not worry about losing. You can see my review here:

    Pelikan Souverän M805F.jpeg

    From the album: Mercian’s pens

    My Pelikan Souverän M805F. I bought it in March 2020, just as the Plague the pandemic of Covid19 was arriving in the UK. Those of you have a keen eye for a waspy will notice that it has a bi-colour nib on it, rather than one of the entirely-rhodium-plated ones that one would expect to find on an M805 of that vintage. This is because the lovely people at the company from whom I bought it allowed me to have mine with the bi-colour nib. Which is what would have been on an M805 when I first saw one. I wanted to buy one then, but could not justify spending that much money on one pen. In the subsequent years, the prices charged for this pen only went up. And up again. In 2020, with the pandemic arriving in my country, I realised that I would certainly be finding myself stuck in a ‘lockdown’, and also that I may even actually be dying soon. So I decided the time had definitely arrived for me to stump-up the Silly Money necessary to buy myself a Souverän 😁

  22. Hello, Few days ago I was tidying my attic and I found, among my late uncles things, a box with following fountain pens. They have been sitting there for at least 20 years. I will appreciate any help with identifying, or confirming what I found on web, and also any advice on cleaning them. If you have any links to advice how to clean them, and/or restore them, please link it. Also if there is service they can be sent to (in EU). Since they all seem to be piston filling pens I intend to fill them with water, hoping it will unclog/wash residue ink and see where they leak. 1. I think this one is Montblanc 146, F (?) tip. On the piston cap is engraved 146 and F and L(?). This L looks weird, and I could not get good photo of it. Engraved on cap ring is Montblanc Masterpiece. On cap is engraved Stahlunion, which, I think, is German company which he used to work with. There also is small hole on cap. As far as I can tell, piston is not working, as I could not see any movement through ink window. Is there any way to repair it? 2. Parker 51 (?), Dove Gray, Vac filling (?), no idea of nib size. How to check for nib size? Damage on grip section, looks like it was mended with super glue. 3. I think this one is Faber Castell Osmia. Under piston cap is engraving 884, EF. Piston is working. 4. No idea for this pen. On cap is engraved Germany Rolled Gold. 5. This one is a bit strange. Looks like Montblanc. And I think it is Montblanc 254, OBB engraved on piston cap (Broad nib?). Cap is friction fit. But the nib is Pelikan, F. I guess at some point nib was changed. Or is there possibility of some cooperation between Montblanc and Pelikan? 6. This one is a bonus one. It was not in box with others. At first I thought it is fake Montblanc, but at closer inspection I found that there is engraving at the cap – Montblanc No. 12 and according to photos I saw on web it might be legit. What do you think? Cap is friction fit. Nib looks verry clogged. I don't know nib size.
  23. Vasilis97

    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

    Pelikans, capped

    From the album: Mercian’s pens

    L-R: ’Classic’ M205 ‘F’; P480 Pelikano ‘F’; P480 Pelikano ‘F’; Souverän M805 ‘F’. If you look closely you will see that I have broken the clip on my blue Pelikano, and the barrel on my transparent Pelikano. They are not as robust as Lamy Safaris.
