Ahhh what a lovely pen -- sadly, more than I would ever pay though!

"Why me?"
"That is a very Earthling question to ask, Mr. Pilgrim. Why you? Why us for that matter? Why anything? Because this moment simply is. Have you ever seen bugs trapped in amber?"
"Yes."

"Well, here we are, Mr. Pilgrim, trapped in the amber of this moment. There is no why."

Would love to see one in person, though I have to pass on owning one.

Wait three years until the next Depression, I bet you can get it NOS for half price. ;)

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:

Beautiful pen, and will surely hold its value long term given the limited run. But at 3000 Euros, I couldn't even think about it. Even at 10% of that it would be beyond my budget. ($150 USD is my most expensive to date)

How very disappointing! I'm glad i decided to invest in the Raden Royal Gold.

Rationalizing pen and ink purchases since 1967.

I see what you did there...

 

:lticaptd:

Well, it can't be a MB LE -- it's relatively tasteful! ;) OTOH, it's actually kinda boring looking for something designed commemorate a momentous occasion like that.

Truthfully, even if I could afford a pen that expensive, I wouldn't get one because that would be way too large and heavy for me (especially if it's sized like an M1000).

The real question, of course would be "What's the LE ink to go with the pen gonna be?" Silver grey, maybe? I'd definitely buy a grey/silver Edelstein ink.... :wub:

If I buy one do I have to drink Courvoisier and Coke? :yikes:

The best that I've heard it said is, and I'm paraphrasing here, "180 years and this is the best that they could come up with?"

PELIKAN - Too many birds in the flock to count. My pen chest has proven to be a most fertile breeding ground.

Thanks for sharing!

 

So uninspired and ugly. Especially that nib!

 

Agreed. The three diamonds are the crowning touch.

Yeah...looks like a free promo pen to me with that writing on the barrel. And such an unsophisticated font...

      @Ruaidhri This was an absolutely wonderful bit of writing, and I hope that you're able to maintain the style once all of the medications are out of your system.  Take care and recover quickly!

      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.
