Newest Acquisitions (Virtual "Show & Tell") ~ part 91

And now, a lovely Pelikan fountain pen that's been in production since 2003--honourary VPC member Glenn G's blue-striped Pelikan M805 !

Glenn: "I already had two M800s in the pretty blue stripe pattern, but for some reason the M805s seem to be a bit more expensive, which led me to wait until one came along that was a better bargain.

This example was sold by a FPN member in London, which at least meant that the postal service was a lot more reliable, especially since he used tracked airmail."



"The only thing that makes this pen in any way special is that the original owner had paid Niche Pens to modify its standard M nib into an M stub, which I’m looking forward to trying out."


"I have a couple of M800s with factory IB nibs (one in the blue stripe), so it will be interesting to compare."

Wow, that stub nib looks like it'll be fun to use ! Congratulations on a great new acquisition, Glenn, and many thanks for sharing it with our club!
