Pelikan M600 Black/Green Striated, M600 14K Extra Fine, inked with Noodler's Black Swan in English Roses

The classic Pelikan in my preferred size makes its 28th time into my pen rotation. I am of course referring to the M600 Black/Green Striated pen.


This old M600 14K Extra Fine probably produces the narrowest line width of all my nibs. It entered my collection with the M620 Athens pen so was not that pens original nib as they featured 18K nibs. It is, however, a very well performing nib.


Noodler's Black Swan in English Roses is a classic burgundy ink. It was designed to perform best with a flexible nib, showing a darker outline with a lighter middle. It doesn't show up in the scans, but this ink sheens gold through all of the text.
