nice pictures and good review

what year did Pelikan have a pouch? mine never came with it.

 

I am aware that Pelikan drastically revamped its presentation of its fine writing instruments, including the launch of Edelstein ink, a new site for fine writing instruments (at http://www.pelikan.com/exclusive), a new metal logo, and new packaging (including the pouch), during the second half or fourth quarter of 2010. I do not know much more about this change.

I have not purchased a new Pelikan for quite some time, but the older nibs were always a little broader than other manufacturers (e.g., A Pelikan Fine would be close to a Montblanc Medium). This agrees with your review of the new M600.

 

My M600 has been in use for many years and I find they just keep filling and functioning without problems.

That's a beautiful Peli and a big step up from the 200. Love the new gold embossed logo. Great review.

Among other Pelikans I have a nice 605.

 

For my twist out nibbed piston pens, I use either and or a rubber ear syringe (also the nib) or a needle syringe.

 

It takes but seconds to take off the nib, a half a minute to clean the pen, and a not more than two water fills to make sure the nib is also clean.

 

The normal shake into the paper towel like an old fashioned thermometer and I'm good to go.

 

Two-three minutes total with out stressing the piston by running it up and down a lot of times to get everything out.

German vintage '50-70 semi-flex stubs and those in oblique give the real thing in On Demand line variation. Modern Oblique is a waste of money for a shadow of line variation. Being too lazy to Hunt for affordable vintage oblique pens, lets you 'hunt' for line variation instead of having it.

RIP...200's once great nib, now a double ball.:crybaby::wallbash:

I like my Pelikan M600. I've had it for years but lately it's been suffering from ink starvation after ~ 1/2 page of writing. Anyone have any thoughts/suggestions?

If it was working fine before, then I would suggest cleaning it. I expect some dried ink or particle in the ink clogged the feed or airway in the feed.

Glad to see this thread revived. I have some wonderful pens. My dark blue M605, with a Pendleton Brown CI, is my favorite. I love my Nakaya desk pen, my OMAS, both with Mottishaw CIs. I love my Visconti HS Lava Bronze Age oversized, which will soon have a PB CI. I love my Platinum 3776s, modified or not, and my 823, unmodified. But on that day I leave for the deserted island, and can take but one pen, it will be my M605. Wait, I omitted my vintage Pelikans. I’ll leave them for another category.

I'm very fond of my M600s, especially the M620s. I have accumulated several customized nibs for them. They are quite comfortable in the hand, and are not so large as to attract attention. I wouldn't want to give up my M800s or M1000s, but for everyday writing comfort, the M600 series takes the prize.

Rationalizing pen and ink purchases since 1967.

Total agreement.

      These comments make me sad as I sympathise with Ruaidhri, having great difficulties in being taken seriously. Or being taken at all (no off-colors jokes, please!) In spite of overwhelming odds,  Ruaidhri -now I know how to spell it- made a courageous decision and stuck to it. I was diagnosed with a similar growth in a place I will not reveal. Oh, well, if you insist it was Mount Sinai Hospital. But I firmly intend to walk in Ruaidhri's footsteps, if he will let me, on my next visit to Dublin.

      Reminds me of the day my associates and I developed a cure for all mankind's ills and mistakenly wrote it down with invisible ink.
