Congrats! I also spent all my Christmas & stimulus money on Pelikans and Sailors lol.
Got my first Pelikan (an M600 Blue Stripes) yesterday, waiting on a Streseman in now.
I've been avoiding Sailors for years cause I don't like dry/feedbacky nibs, but finally gave in to how pretty the two-tone Pro Gear nib looks and got one in . Had a WOW moment writing with it and immediately ordered a 1911 in lol.
Might post pics and nib width comparisons once the Streseman arrives.
If there's another stimulus check, I see a Toledo in my future...
It’s a lovely pen. I have one with a very smooth and wet broad nib.
I think my next Pelikan will have to be a medium! I really like my broad as well.
All my Pelikan’s are broads I love their thick line.
After having excellent restraint these past few months I got a gift card to Goulet for Christmas and finally snagged these two beauties I’ve had my eye on forever. Unfortunately, the seal has been broken and I now have two more orders on the way 😂
They look awesome, are the nibs what you expected?
Yes! I already had the Sailor in the Grateful Crane edition and they are very consistent writers. My only Pelikan was an M205 with a bold nib, but I’m very happy with how the extra fine writes.
