Hi folks,

After scribbling some notes this morning, I decided to photograph a brace of Pelikans.

I'm sorry for the dull indoors pictures but I thought it would still be fun to show the extreme difference in these two. They're not exactly identical twins :)

Which models are they? M200-M1000...that is my guess to my untrained eye.

Very close, Lisa!

They're the M300 and M1000 pens.

Aaw, they're so cute together! Just like the mother Pelikan and baby Pelikan on the logo!

Do you think if you feed the M300 a steady diet of Noodler's Sequoia Green, it will grow into a mighty M1000?

I'd hope so. I'm feeding my M300 Ruby Caran d'Ache Sunset, hoping it will turn into a one-of-a-kind M1000 Ruby.

That's a very good idea! I like this comparative pictures to show how big or small they are!

Wow. Look at the size of that thing!

Can't fool me. That's the same pen at two different distances ;)

You have to love the variety that Pelikan provides when you can get one pen so dainty and another so beastly.

A couple more Pelikan comparisons, this time it's Demonstrators.

The M200 and the M800,

Awesome pictures. Thank you.
The M800's metal piston parts and gold nib do add a little 'X factor' to the demonstrator though.

Clearly I need to get an M200 demonstrator to match my M800.

Thank you, Kai.

The brass and gold does indeed lift the M800. It has real heft and a weighty feel which I just love too. My dream pen was, and probably still is, the M1005 Demonstrator. Sadly, I'd have to import it to here and that would make it just too much after all the fees, etc. Maybe some day!

I enjoy the M200 as well but then I am a massive fan of Demonstrators :)

@reprieve...

Yes, indeed. The Demonstrator M200 is a necessity!

Excellent thread mate! I'm like reprieve but the other way around, but an M800 would be a big purchase both terms.

Love the pics. Keep em coming!
