Pelikan pen number 47 arrived into my collection today. The Pelikan M400 Tortoiseshell Brown Special Edition is a good looking little pen.
The IB (Italic Broad) nib is a super wide factory stub. It runs to a width of almost 1.5mm. I was amazed that Pelikan offered this nib with the Brown Tortoise, the only other recent IB nib (the M800 size) was offered only with a Black/Green Striated pen.
My other arrival today was the Montblanc Meisterstück Ultra Black
An interesting ink - not a black black but from this very broad nib it exhibits undertones that run from purple to red.
My three Brown Tortoises, from front M415, M400 and, M800.
