Pelikan M320 Ruby Red, M300 14K Broad, inked with Bookbinders Snake Ink Ground Rattler
The cuteness continues with my Ruby Red M320 making its sixteenth appearance in my rotation. Like its M600 big brother, this pen has a lovely ruby red marbled pattern in the material, some people dislike the black blind cap and grip, but I like the contrast.
I have been collecting spare M300 nibs of late. This broad came from Cult Pens in the UK who have a few M300 nibs still in stock. It feels a bit weird to have such a wide nib on a tiny pen, but you soon forget about it once you write a few words and marvel at the smoothness.
I don’t remember this ink being so pale, in my notes from its last use I did note that it was a similar shade to iroshizuku kiri-same. It shades well, but all grey inks shade. I hope it is legible on the Clairefontaine paper stock I use at the office.
