I know, I know, it has a ballpoint but the M100 is my official storm trooper pen. I love the look with the black nib. The writing is smooth and even though it is a B nib it writes somewhat thin. I never thought I would ever say that. The line feels about what my 140 puts down and it is a F. I don't think I am going to touch the nib as far as grinding goes. I don't want to mess up the black finish. The acrylic is surprisingly nice. Rather thick and feels like it has some heft for an acrylic pen.

The first Pelikan I've seen with a black nib, I think. Unusual pen!

The pen looks really nice, but I found it a bit too light for my taste when I used one. And then I got a crack in the blind cap of the piston.

The nib performance was really good though, for the price.

:eek: I hope this will last longer.

I do really like the look of the black nib. This one will be in use today with Waterman Florida Blue.

No, and probably won't have them with all that I have spent. Not to worry though, I have a Red Esterbrook J and a black Wality/Airmail Black Beauty.

Wow, that is a handsome pen set in an impressive box.
The black trim & nib really sets off the fountain pen, it does have a very pronounced ball too.



There is something very appealling about these white pens :big_boss: I may have to reconsider a white safari !


Congratulations on a nice penset and thanks for sharing photos of them.

Thanks Bogon. It looks like the barrel will not stain either. ;)

I forgot the writing sample. I was in a bit of a hurry and yes, I did take the "Hello" line variation test from sbrebrown. Seems like the easiest to do and it's fun. :D
