Newest Acquisitions (Virtual "Show & Tell") ~ part 131

Here's one of the newest acquisitions belonging to honourary VPC member Glenn from Australia - his brand-new Pelikan M600 Tortoiseshell Red fountain pen...

Glenn: "This is the latest, and arguably the prettiest, M60X special edition, and it is turning a lot of heads... justifiably so."


"OK, there is no transparent ink window, nor are the barrel stripes transparent when you hold it up to the light, which annoys some. Personally, it’s not a big issue; most of the pens in my collection suffer from the same ‘fault’ and it has never really bothered me... it’s a great excuse to carry two pens so you have a back-up!"


"It’s going in the pen case with the rest of the flock for now, but I may be tempted to ink it in the new year. You can easily find the advertising blurb on any Pelikan retailer’s site, so I’ll not bore you with the specifications, etc.; if you know M600s you already know them anyway."

For an in-depth look at this model (and its kin), Glenn suggests checking out this review at"The Pelikan's Perch", Joshua Danley's excellent Pelikan blog. Our thanks to Glenn for sharing this beautiful new acquisition with us!

Great pen Glenn.
I've been eyeing it since.
I would agree with you, it ranks up there with the best in terms of gorgeousness!
