    Both pens had broken parts (cap and barrel) so I introduced those two to each other and the rest is history…

    That is one of my favourites, aesthetically very pleasing, and even though it is a frankenpelikan it feels very much like a whole thing that could have been in Pelikan catalog if they had retained the old style clip.

    My modest flock of Pelikans:
    Two FPs, early 50's 400, and a late 50's 400NN set with a ballpoint and a pencil.

    I had only One PeliKan and it was M200 Modern pen.

    So Now I have to correct that record as I have now two PeliKans as I am adding a new pen to the PeliKan Collection.

    I believe it is the vintage M200 pen that has a 14K EF nib. In this thread there's no other evidence of having that pen in anyone collection.
    I think I am blind and my vision is really distracted among all the other pelicans superstars on displays over here.

    My apologies folks !!!

    Surprisingly, quite a few. Surprisingly because I am not so excitied by modern Pelikan nibs and beacause older pens a a bit thin for my hand. This being said, I LOVE vintage Pelikan nibs, esp. the 400 lines ones - even succeeded in puting one in my Danitrio Densho Body

    So currently:
    a 400nn in green stips, with an extraordinary F nib;
    a 400nn tortoise brown currently with a flex OB nib;
    a m250 demo fitted with a vintage B nib;
    the good old 120 of my late mother - the nib died on this one, I am using it with a Waterman n°2 on the Pelikan original feed
    a 140 with a nice, rigid F nib
    a red m205 thata was a gift to my mother, with a stuibbed B steel nib.
    a couple of Level 65 that I am not using much
    a school pen bought with the hope that my son would like to write with a FP.

    That's about it!

    I have officially given up counting.

    My latest acquisition is a boring black Pelikan 400. But it has a BB nib! :-)

    I have 3.....two M200's and one M400. Pelikan is the first "broad nib" pen that I have really enjoyed using.
    Not OVERLY borad so it lays down a river of ink, but enough to look awesome on signatures and special notes in my
    journals.

    I'd guess they simply meant a nib with a noticeably "boxy" form, in contrast to a round or tear-shaped nib.

    Unless you threw that one out there in jest (ya never know on the internet), there is no such thing as a "rhombus nib". The pen in question is a "Pelikan M215 Rhombus", it has a black metal binde that has squares/boxes engraved into it (hence the name).

    But now that I let my imagination wander a bit... I see a boxy nib that has four different inks, one for each of the forward edges. Now that would be something...

    And back on topic, how many Pelikans do I have... sadly, since the last update, their number has remained the same. I aim to correct that this week though, provided I am fortunate enough to remain in favor of the gods of commerce and luck (translated: I have my eye on a few auctions that end this week).

    Uuh, ideas: To have something like that one would need a nib with a cross-wise/double slit, like two big stubs or Sailor's music nibs welded together, but the middle of the connecting channel closed and the channels to the four slit openings/sides each going to a different ink chamber/quarter cartridge. Depending on which angle you write, you get another color.

    +1 is the answer... I recently added a Black-Striped Pelikan 400 to my collection, a wonderful pen with a fantastic flexy 14k nib in B.
