    Default My Current Pelikan Nibs.



    Left to Right:

    Pelikan 400NN (1956, Green Striped), 14K EF Semi-Flex (hard rubber nib unit collar)

    Pelikan 140 (1950s, Black w/ Green Ink Window), 14K Broad CI (springy, EF across)

    Pelikan 20 Silvexa, 14K Rhodium(?) Coated OB

    Pelikan M250 (1992-1996, Black), 14K Monotone Medium

    Pelikan M400 Old-Style (1990s, Brown Tortoise), 14K Monotone Medium

    Pelikan M640 Special Edition (2008, Mount Everest), 18K 2-tone Medium

    Pelikan M805 (Blue Striped, Rhodium Trimmed), 18K 2-tone Broad (Though looking to get this one traded to something smaller)

    Pelikan Gold-Plated Steel 1.0 Nib Unit (springy, possibly from an MC120)



    My favorite of the bunch is the nib on the Pelikan 400NN, followed by the Cursive Italic B on the 140. Both very smooth, both are quite springy (more of a difference in variation on the EF of course, but the B will go 2x easy).

    Probably my least favorites are the moderns as they're more of a nail than I'm used to, still good performers, but pretty nail-like.

    The Silvexa's OB is very smooth, but I still have trouble getting used to the left turn needed to write with it.

    Recently received this M800 in the mail after a friend spotted it at a pen show & put me in touch with the seller. It's the M800 Renaissance Brown from 2017, but it arrived with an unexpected nib: OB old-style with PF marking from 1990-2000. Smooth & wet writer. Very pleased. Thanks for looking. Enjoy the remainder of your weekend.
