    Default So how many Pelikans do you have?

    And which ones? I need to go count mine again. I think they keep hatching new ones when I'm not looking.

    I have 4 1/2:

    M805 Black & Silver
    M400 Tortoise
    M215 Lozenge
    M205 Clear (due to arrive soon)
    M205 Blue demo (or what's left after the puppies ate most of it!)

    I've been a bit disappointed at the stiffness of the M805 nib, but otherwise they are great pens.

    Oooo, I bet that's pretty. I didn't know they came in smoke! I just recently discovered I like demos and large ink windows so I can see the ink sloshing around.

    Here's the pen I'm talking about:

    I really like it, it's just a tad small. I really should look for a 600/800 series Pelikan.

    Just one--but it's the M400 white/tortoise. Right now it's inked with Visconti blue, but I'm not carrying it (it's a bit too much bling for high school). It's a joy to write with...though, yes, I could probably do with an M600 size instead. My hands aren't very big, but I do sometimes wish it were just the slightest bit bigger.

    ETA: I also find myself hankering after a completely clear demo to show off some great inks (like the Yama Budo). :P~~ I do NOT, however, need another pen (I'm awaiting the arrival of an Esterbrook deep, dark copper J).

    Let me see...

    I believe it to be 9:

    1 - Steno
    4 - M-200's; Translucent Red, Amber, Blue & a Brown/Tortoise
    2 - 140's; One standard green stripes and one Burgundy
    1 - 400NN Black
    1 - M800 Blue Stripe

    And one I don't have - one of my grail pens: The Toledo 900 - maybe one of these days.

    I just added a second to my collection:
    v363217b.jpg
    I'm planning on grinding it into a nice stub, which would be about BB in width.

    I usedta have a go, don't know where it went. I've got a Pelikano around here someplace, in green. I had a Level 65 that started leaking out the butt end, so it had to go.

    one then. and not the nice one you guys have. hmm.

    What nib does your M600 sport?

    I have just one -- a black M150 with a broad nib. It's an excellent writer. I'm hoping to one day get another one, maybe an M400 white tortoise.

    Thanks. It is gorgeous but right now, not within my budget.
