New Pelikan M205 Announced: Petrol-Marbled



Recommended Posts

Forgive me if this is in the wrong forum; I couldn't decide here or Market Watch. Read this at the Pelikans Perch. Looks beautiful so far-- can't wait to see what it looks like in person. Thoughts?

 

(Might have gotten the picture too big so I tried to hide it in a spoilers tag)

 

My thoughts: it looks like the Ocean Swirl, which I *love*, but I just bought the new Sailor Yozakura/Night Sakura so I'll probably pass on this for now...

A Smug Dill

That certainly looks more attractive to my eyes than the M205 Moonstone.

I endeavour to be frank and truthful in what I write, show or otherwise present, when I relate my first-hand experiences that are not independently verifiable; and link to third-party content where I can, when I make a claim or refute a statement of fact in a thread. If there is something you can verify for yourself, I entreat you to do so, and judge for yourself what is right, correct for valid. I may be wrong, and my position or say-so is no more authoritative and carries no more weight than anyone else's here.

Interesting. It should match M805 Ocean Swirl... I hope there will be dedicated ink for this pen :)

I'd buy a bottle of swirly ink 🤪

Oh yes... I want one. Or two... :D I think that would look outstanding with a 14K yellow gold vintage Pelikan nib... 🥰

Beautiful colour, and hopefully a nice consolation for those who missed out on the Ocean Swirl.

Nice! A new home for Lamy Petrol.

It's hard work to tell which is Old Harry when everybody's got boots on.

Interesting, but I think not a color for me.

Oh yeah, I'll have to add one of those... maybe even the set.  First new Pelikan I've fallen instantly in love with in a long time.

I hate this pen.

 

I hate it.

 

I hate it.

 

Because I'm going to have to have it. How dare Pelikan do this to me? Again!!!!!

 

Seriously, I think it looks beautiful. A lot of the M20X series recently have been white plus light colours, or demonstrators, but this pen looks as if it has real depth and a moodiness to the swirls that gives it a quite different feel.

Too many pens, too little time!

Uuuuuh... nice!

 

But as I do have the Ocean Swirl, I don´t NEED it.

Do I WANT it all the same? Well, we´ll see about that...

Oh, I just looked on the Fritz Schimpf site and unless they've made a mistake it's available with a BB nib.

 

That will definitely mean I'm getting it if so!

Hmmm.  A BB nib, you say?  That may be a game changer then.  Because I could swap the BB nib unit into one of the M400/M405 pens, or onto the M200.  And then sell the pen to someone else....  Because I really don't especially like the color.

I mean, it's not like I have the "correct" nib on my M405 Stresemann anyway....  (When I got that pen, the vendor didn't have the completely rhodium plated nib in the width I wanted.  And I decided that getting a B nib was more crucial to me than getting a 100% "correct nib (plus, if there's ever an issue of "my" Stresemann vs. someone else's Stresemann, I  can say, "Nope -- the Stresemann with the *2-toned* B nib is MY pen!" B)

Just got a black 250 and a old style marbled blue 200 pen set, both NOS so this new 200 came out a couple days too late.:angry:

 

When one is cursed with a budget, it helps to read the future.

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 really like the look of this one! I haven't being buying M200s in a while, and the blue swirl M205 was really nice. This one looks as nice, and the BB nib really makes it interesting too.

A 200 nib would be an upgrade on IMO any 'post '97 400/600 nib and it's been a while since Pelikan issued a BB nib as far as I know.

Hummmm.....got to call up my B&M....as soon as Biden's money comes in, to see if he's got a 200's nib in BB or can order one for me.

Dam; how fast common sense can kick in a dreamy thought.....I've got semi-flex BB's and or OBB's.

 

My mind does have a built in 14 K golden shovel for throwing money over my shoulder.
