Pelikan M800 Renaissance Brown Inner Cap



Pen_Noob

Recommended Posts

Hi All,

I noticed recently that my M800 Renaissance Brown doesn't have an inner cap, which I suppose makes it more prone to ink drying.

All my other M800's including the Grand Place have it.

 

So is this normal, or is it a defect on mine?

 

Thanks in advance

That would be odd. Mine does have one, but it takes a really strong backlight to see it in this material.

The Renaissance Brown, like all M800s, does indeed have an inner cap. Its not easily detected but it's definitely there. You could disassemble the cap if you wanted to prove it to yourself but it's really not worth it to do so. Try a really strong back light and you will see it. Traditionally, M800s are great at resisting drying out.

I've got an M800 brown tortoise that can literally sit for months and writes when it first touches the paper. Amazing.

      Not sure if this has been suggested already but would a setting for localized regions or chapters in FPN be helpful? I don't know if there is a way to find local FPN members who would be nearby. I don't know if we want to be discoverable but a setting to know how many members are in 25, 50, or a 100 miles of each other might be helpful. We can create a regions specific network like Craigslist where people could use that to connect with nearby members, conduct in person sales, arrange FPN meetups

      Hi again all, I forgot to tell y'all that I made the post about Sweden ink PIF. Most have probably found it long ago, but here's a link, anyway:

      I read your blog post and all the replies with much interest. I'm a FP user in Australia. Been part of this forum for years but rarely post. I did come across your ink sharing thread and considered participation. For me it's not lack of interest but lack of time to play around with FP and inks. I'd feel bad to put my hand up for the box and just have it sit until gosh knows when...   I also think that the FP community in Australia is smaller, and I wonder how many in the community are

      Even so, you'd end up with a fragmented list, and it becomes an O(N²) process for each prospective requestor to check what is available: effectively recreate the list of currently active servers (without any reliable up-to-date info upfront about the inks and number of samples on offer in the thread) from the sequential list of posts, which may be spread over two or even more pages, and then query each server independently to check what is currently on offer.   It comes down to not hav
