Nothing.

Is that really a reddish tortoise, or are you talking about a red striped 800?

I do know they had red stripped 400, perhaps a 600.

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.

I am talking for a new special edition pen, exactly as I describe it and according to the information I have ... I hope to have a photo soon.

If it’s very new and not yet released, still covered by an NDA, people can’t discuss it here by the rules.

“I admit it, I'm surprised that fountain pens are a hobby. ... it's a bit like stumbling into a fork convention - when you've used a fork all your life.”

I remember reading somewhere that Pelikan said there won't be a special edition M800 this year...but TBH it might've been just a random comment somewhere and not even something official :lol:

 

If they do release one I'm really curios now that I've seen this thread's title :o

According to the Nibsmith Pelikan will be coming out with a 600 series in Red Tortoiseshell. 

 

Indeed they are; mine is pre-ordered from Cult Pens.  I'd love to see it in the M800 size too.

A member here penenabled  me to pre-order the red tortoise. I as done buying fountain pens 😂😂. I jumped on the Black Friday sale. and got a cursive italic grind on it for about $340? Hope its great. This will be my first cursive italic nib. I own italics (factory), but these are more like stubs.

Sounds lovely... I'm a great fan of stubs and italics too.  I recently bought an M805 blue stripe from a member who had had the the factory M nib ground to stub by the Pelikan dealer. Very nice.

Script with these nibs has so much more character.

Glenn.
