Yesterday I posted my brief review of my pen collecting of 2015, today I want to look ahead and share my current thoughts and wishlist for the coming year.
In essence I want to buy more pens but less inks than I did in 2015.
So far I have five Pelikan M800 series pens on my purchase list
- M800 Grand Place SE
- M800 Burnt Orange SE
- M805 Stresemann
- M805 Vibrant Blue SE
- M805 Solid Blue/Silver
The first four are current releases, the last I will have to source on the secondary market.
Last year my pen to ink buy ratio was 1:20, this year I want to reduce this to 1:3 or less.
To achieve this I plan to only buy new release inks so already I have penciled in two inks - Montblanc Golden Yellow and Pelikan Edelstein Aquamarine (2016 ink of the year)
