Searching For A 2004 M600 Cap End Emblem...


Splotch

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone,

 

I have a 2004 M600 that is otherwise in very good condition, but has unfortunately lost the little black emblem at the end of the cap.

 

In this particular model it is supposed to be the black resin emblem with a golden bird feeding its chick.

 

Of course, there's the option of purchasing a whole replacement cap, but those go for over 100€, and I don't feel like paying 100€ for a tiny bit of plastic.

 

So I ask you, the community. Is it possible to replace the M600's cap emblem with the cap emblem of a smaller model? M200, M400? Do you have spare cap emblems lying around? Do you know of someone that does?

 

Very much appreciated! All the best.

Have you thought of asking Pelikan in Hanover?

I've no idea if they still have them....but in it's 'new' from 2004 they might still have one. They might want to put it on themselves.

The least they would do is put on a new one and for free.

In reference to P. T. Barnum; to advise for free is foolish, ........busybodies are ill liked by both factions.

I've just contacted my local Pelikan representative after Pelikan Germany redirected me there. Let's see how it goes.

 

One should think that for a 300€+ fountain pen they could service a 0,1€ piece of plastic for free, but so far it seems to be quite complicated.

 

But let's wait and see. I'll post an update if they solve the problem.

Someone paid money for the repair franchise....so they get first call at repair.

At least you have an answer.

 

If you put what Continent you are on, makes it easier to direct you to help...but I'd thought it over warrentee and more Hanover's gig.

      I have the Sailor Naginata and some fancy blade nibs coming after 2022 by a number of new workshop from China.  With all my respect, IMHO, they are all (bleep) in doing chinese characters.  Go use a bush, or at least a bush pen.

      It is the reason why I'm so keen on the idea of a personal library — of pens, nibs, inks, paper products, etc. — and spent so much money, as well as time and effort, to “build” it for myself (because I can't simply remember everything, especially as I'm getting older fast) and my wife, so that we can “know”; and, instead of just disposing of what displeased us, or even just not good enough to be “given the time of day” against competition from >500 other pens and >500 other inks for our at

      Agreed.  And I think it’s good to be aware of this early on and think about at the point of buying rather than rationalizing a purchase..

      Alas, one cannot know “good” without some idea of “bad” against which to contrast; and, as one of my former bosses (back when I was in my twenties) used to say, “on the scale of good to bad…”, it's a spectrum, not a dichotomy. Whereas subjectively acceptable (or tolerable) and unacceptable may well be a dichotomy to someone, and finding whether the threshold or cusp between them lies takes experiencing many degrees of less-than-ideal, especially if the decision is somehow influenced by factors o

      I got my first real fountain pen on my 60th birthday and many hundreds of pens later I’ve often thought of what I should’ve known in the beginning. I have many pens, the majority of which have some objectionable feature. If they are too delicate, or can’t be posted, or they are too precious to face losing , still they are users, but only in very limited environments..  I have a big disliking for pens that have the cap jump into the air and fly off. I object to Pens that dry out, or leave blobs o
