    Default Chinese Pelikan clones

    It had to happen sooner or later. Looking thru the AliExpress site I came across these piston-filled Pelikan M800 clones, in Pelikan M620 similar colors:

    This is the Pelikan M620 Shangai clone:

    And here is the Pelikan M620 Berlin clone:

    These pens are piston filled and use Schmidt nibs except, for some reason, the black model that has a Bock option. The full name of these pens is: New ADMOK M800 Acrylic Piston Fountain Pen BOCK/Schmidt Soft Smooth No.6/35# Nib Inking Pelikan Copy Students Writing Gift Pen.

    I can see it now: Soon we will have a barrage of new posters asking... Is my Pelikan real?

    Thanks. Do you have one, and if so, how's it write?

    No, I don't. I got the photo off of Ali Baba.

    If I did not have too many fountain pens already, I would buy one. But then, I have seven Pelikans, ranging from a 140 to an 800NN to a couple of 600s. These clones look nice. The Wing Sung Parker 51 Vac "semi clones" are good, except for the nib.

    If these Pelikan clones are decent writers, maybe they can be intro fountain pens for people who have grown up with throw-away ballpoints and who are not ready to spend $100 on a fountain pen. A "gateway" to fountain pen obsession?

    I have four of them. Two are inked, one with a fine nib and the other with a medium. These use German nibs. I like them quite a lot. They work great and look great. I do have a sizable flock of Pelikans from 200s through to m1000. I like the Pelikans better but I do not get them for $50 dollars. I'm thinking of getting more while I can.

    UPDATE on the Pelikan clone situation...

    Looking around Etsy I found another Pelikan clone: the St Penpps Admok 400 Fountain Pen, which is basically a Pelikan M400 sized Chinese piston filler. The #5 nib options are "normal" (whatever that is) and Schmidt in EF/F/M sizes. Sadly, no ink window although some models appear to be translucent.
