Pelikan M600 Pink Special Edition, M620 18K Medium, inked with Noodler's Midnight Blue

I love this pink pen; I probably say that every time it comes into rotation. But I do. It is still the best of the M600 white trim pens. It is just a fun pen to use, and I always get comments about it in the office.


This nib had a fault, its tines we slightly too far apart, which made for a hard starter and then a very wet broad line. Last night I decided to do something about it; I knew the technique to fix this, but I had never had the need actually to use it. It involves bending one tine down and the other up and then crossing them over one another to force the tines closer. It took a couple of attempts, but the tips of the tine were back to a gap that looked normal. All I had to do next was realign them vertically, and it should be good to go.


The fix on the nib worked well as the problem I had with it were gone. Noodler’s Midnight Blue is one of my oldest inks being in my collection for almost eight years. It is a rich dark blue that I enjoy, it shades very slightly from this medium nib, but there is no sheen to be seen.
