  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.

    Jade - Pelikan Edelstein

    Pelikan Edelstein is the proof of Pelikan employees marketing efficiency. Beautifully packaged inks bear promise of amazing writing experience. The line is popular all around the world and concurs with the likes of Pilot Iroshizuku or Graf von Faber-Castell. http://imageshack.com/a/img540/2076/YtmFPx.jpg The packaging is really impressive. The outer cardboard box is, more or less, standard. It's not overisized and made from cardboard.The front panel has a slightly slanted extra facet with a colored panel that corresponds to the ink color inside. Care was also taken to keep ink secure in t
  3. I recently had the good fortune of running into a second Pelikan D.R.G.M. stamped leather pouch for two pens, most likely from 1930s-1940s. As I call it I got it for a song (15€ with shipping and with a no name fountain pen included) so it is currently on its way to me from Germany. The pouch itself is made of four pieces, black leather on the top and bottom with a liner of red leather running in between, and a zipper with red textile backing running on top. The back piece is stamped in the center with Pelikan D.R.G.M. It fits a 100, 100N and even a 400 with a matching
  4. This Pelikan Pen M800 is made of Optical Borosilicate Glass in body and Shappire in cap. However, after I made this pen within 48 hours it just broken(I am a very careful people who never drop a pen on the ground for 10 years) Maybe the only reason to explain it is that thread stroke was too long. At least I know that Shappire & Glass are too fragile to make a endurable fountain pen. So I remove those materials in my transparent pen making :{ Luckily, a friend made a optium museum acrylic pen body with sterling silver clip for me as “backup”. Some good trans

    Next fountain pen

    I'm looking forward to the third U.S. stimulus check and want to use part of it to buy my next fountain pen. Please see my signature for the pens that I have. I'm thinking of the following (all under $400.): new Pelikan 400; vintage Pelikan 400NN from Rick Propas; vintage Pelikan 400N from Rick Propas; vintage Pelikan 400 from Rick Propas; new Waterman Carene; or new Santini. Any suggestions? Thoughts? I like all the pens that I have, but my favorites are the Pelikan M850 and the Waterman Phileas.

    Rust On M1000 Nib

    Anyone else suffered this? Not on the nib itself, obviously, but when I was flushing my new M1000 last week I unscrewed the nib and found rust on the collar ....

    Pelikan IBIS DRP vintage

    Hello! I recently found my grandfathers old fountain pen at home. It has a 14K original nib. I tried to clean it, but since the pen has been unused for 30 years, the barrel cracked a little. The nib also needs some repairs. I hope that someone here can help me, since I plan to restore it and give it to my father on his 60th birthday. hope that someone can help best regards Bendik

  9. Pen Pit Stop : Pelikan Souverän M101N Bright 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 entering the pit stop today is the “Pelikan M101N Bright Red”.

    Pelikan Music Nibs

    Hi, I regularly use a few vintage Pelikans dated between 1934 and 1959, and keep them in perfect writing condition. I am curious about Pelikan music nibs. I've heard a few stories of those who once have used them. From the appearance (size, engraving style) one might guess they could have been manufactured in smaller quantities during the 100n production era (1937-1954). Does someone in the Forum perhaps have a more educated info on this topic? Are there any manufacturing records? Can those Pelikan music nibs still be occasionally found somewhere? I understand this is a subject of limited in
  12. Two Pelikan Fritz Schimpf Italic Grind Nibs & Seven Inks In the first days of June, 2019 I finalized a third order of paper, inks and fountain pens from Fritz Schimpf in Tübingen, Germany. The first two shipments were of such outstanding quality that it seemed best to brighten my writing desk with more high quality goods. The order consisted of two pads of the superlative Fritz Schimpf A5 writing paper, as it’s become my paper of choice for most writing. Seven more L’Artisan Pastellier Callifolio inks were ordered, including one “Mystery” ink, as I requested Fritz Schim
  13. (All the writing was done using a dip pen, not the Aurora 888 Saturno that was merely acting as a paperweight while I took the photo above.) The degree to which iron-gall inks are water resistant vary greatly from ink to ink, even when they are in the same product line of the same brand. Sadly, KWZ Ink IG Mandarin does not perform very well at all, and barely surpasses Aztec Gold IGL (which stands for Iron-Gall Light) in that respect. Aside: I was a bit surprised to see Platinum Blue-Black sheen purple some prominently and evenly.

    Brilliant Red - 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&a

    Pelikan Edelstein Smoky Quartz

    Pelikan Edelstein Smoky Quartz Back in the days When I attended primary school in Holland in the end of the 70s a Fountain Pen was obligatory. Since I had some troubles with my fine motor skills my parents decided to buy me a Pelikano Fountain Pen which in those days was top of the bill and a serious investment back then. I always remember what I loved most about that pen. It not only had a nice blue colour, but I really loved the blue ink window. I thought it resembled the blue flashing light on police cars AWESOME Here is a link to the history of the Pelikano Fountain Pen htt

    This is a beautiful Pelikan M1005 Souverän Stresemann Fountain Pen with an 18kt gold medium-sized nib. It is in mint condition. "As New." Never used. Never inked. Comes with original box and all papers. After having been lovingly part of my fountain pen collection, I am seeking a new home for this Pelikan. It should give its new owner a lifetime of writing pleasure. I am also offering free USPS Priority Mail shipping within the U.S. As to the history behind this fountain pen, besides his impressive political career, the foreign minister of the German Weimarer Republic, Gustav Stresemann (1879-1929), also became famous for the creation of a new kind of suit. The classical Stresemann suit consists of black/grey striped trousers and a single row jacket in black or anthracite. The Souverän® of Pelikan is popularly known as „Stresemann“, that is why Pelikan named the Souverän® black-anthracite after Gustav Stresemann. The elegant piston fountain pen is equipped with a 18 carat gold nib which is completely covered by rhodium to obtain a silver sheen. The barrel with the deceptively simple anthracite stripes is made of cellulose acetate, using a traditional process that is extremely work-intensive but gives this series its elegant character.

    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 orang

    Pelikan Passion #3 Magazine

    My thanks to Pelikan for sending me their latest #3 Pelikan Passion magazine. Full of beautiful photographs, interviews, and information. This is not a throwaway advertisement; this is a classy publication from one of my favorite pen companies. Thanks again, Pelikan. First-rate!
  25. Normally I’m a fan of italian fountain pens. I started off with a Pelikan M800 though – the benchmark of a good, full-size piston filler. I was very satisfied with the Pelikan, it seemed to be everything I ever wanted from a fountain pen, I would never need another one. But later, after falling in love with the looks of it, I ordered a Delta Dolcevita and completely changed my point of view for what fountain pens are about. Handling the Dolcevita was like holding a Faberge egg in my hand, the Pelikan reminded of a free merchandise pen in comparison. The Italian culture has a profound feel for
