My Pelikan M8Xx Sized Collection

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone. I had the camera out and was taking a few photos on a lazy Sunday so I thought that I would snap and share a pic of my M8xx collection. I'm really leaning towards the M8xx sized pens as some of my favorites of the flock. Enjoy!

I thought I was doing well with my 6 M8xx. I only plan on one more M8xx to pair with a spare nib I got in a sale a while back. Once I get that barrel it's off to Newton Pens for some repurposing and I think my M8xx collection will be complete.

I only have one, the tortoise. I bought an M415 years ago when they came out, but had to have the big guy when it came on the market.

Beautiful and inspiring Joshua, thanks so much for posting. That Gaudi is my grail pen :wub: and the Tort and Toledo are on the top of my list... much to look forward to.

Impressive collection and rather thorough too! I've always loved the Gaudi. I think it was a pretty bold design and would love to see something as adventurous again.

Wonderful collection of one of my favorite pens. The M805 Demonstrator without engravings has the gold trim whereas your M805 with engravings has the silver (rhodium) trim. Were the gold trim produced at the same time as the silver trim or were they produced at different times? Thanks.

Retired, twice. Time to do more things, writing being one.

If it is gold it is an 800. There was an M800 demo produced a few years ago with and without etchings. There were even some produced with etchings in Spanish and maybe German. The pens from last year are M805 and silver.

If you want less blah, blah, blah and more pictures, follow me on Instagram!

Your collection is amazing. I've been going through it, googling various editions to get more pictures of them, because I never realized this many existed. Thank you for the picture and the list of all the pens in the picture.

Wheee!!!! WoW!!!!! :notworthy1:

Then there is the 200's. :o

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:

Superb.

Do you use them all?

 

The only ones I have are M800 in green and in red.

 

Keep wondering if I should get an M800 demonstrator (I have none), or an M1000.
