Pelikan M800 Black/Green Striated, M800 18K Fine, inked with Levenger Fireball
A comment in a Facebook group last week made me think about what my favourite size of Pelikan pen. I decided that I can’t really choose between the M600 size and the M800 size; both have their pros and cons. On this occasion, I get to ink up one of my classic black/green striated pens in M800 size.
I really dislike this nib. It is smooth, and ink flows well, but it is a liar. It has the letter F inscribed on this nib, but it writes like a broad (B). I received this nib with the M800 Grand Place SE and was warned at the time that the nib was broad.
I can’t even remember where this ink came from, I think it was thrown in with one of the pens I bought off eBay. It is a pretty ordinary colour being a shade of orange-red without shading or sheen.
