    Default Star ruby vs gold marbled 200's

    I have been pen shopping and was able to see the Star Ruby and the Gold marbled pens together in the flesh.

    From photos, I'd thought I would probably prefer the Star Ruby. In fact, it was the gold marbled which drew my eye, and which I will probably end up buying. The swirl is rich, the colours are magnificent, and the white piston knob and cap make it a good match for my m400 white tortoise.

    But my pen budget just went on two pens with gorgeous custom bindes. Lucky on ebay!

    Which of the m200s and m205s are other Geeks' favourites?

    White sections make me nervous, so the gold and upcoming green hold no allure at all. Although it took a white 205 and the tortoise to finally admit they weren't for me.

    My favourite is the Café Crème - no idea why Pelikan haven't repeated that contrasting solid colour theme to other colours, but then that's pen companies for you. Also have a sneaking love of the all black in either trim, simply because you really get a chance to appreciate the shape of the pen.

    I know what you mean about the black. I just got a Pelikan 100N in solid black (except for the cap top, which being ebonite has gone a bit brown) - you really see the shape of the pen, no distractions. And Pelikan make a very shiny black indeed, a hundred miles off the matt black that gives Lamy its character.
