Pelikan M400 Tortoiseshell White, M250 14K 0.7mm CI, inked with Graf von Faber-Castell Moss Green

The M400 White Tortie is the cute little brother to my recently in rotation M600 version. The M400 size is my second favourite after the M600 as it is still large enough to use without posting but is short enough to be pocketable in my work polo shirts.


This lovely little single toned 14K nib started life as a medium but was custom ground to a superb 0.7mm cursive italic by Richard Binder.


Graf von Faber-Castell make a pretty handsome bottle. A classic thick walled squat bottle that looks great on the desktop, more the pity that this one spends 99.9% of its time hidden away in a dark cool storage cabinet.


GvFC Moss Green is decent mid green that shades quite well and sheens red on Tomoe River paper.
