The M400 version of my many Black/Green Striated models makes its 16th time in use in the almost six years I have owned this pen. The M400 size is a great little pen the fits so well in the pocket.

Pelikan has so far only made an italic broad nib (IB) in M400 and M800 models. I wish they would produce a version for the M600 and M1000 sizes as well. This M400 version is OK but not great - If anything I feel that it is a drier writer than my other M400 nibs.

J.Herbin 1670 Edition Anniversaire inks usually contain gold dust to provide sparkles on the page. This ink and the Rouge Hematite I have are original releases before J.Herbin started to add the gold. Recently J.Herbin have re-released these limited edition inks with new packaging. I should purchase a sparkly version of this ink as it would add more interest. This ink shades well from the super broad nib but otherwise is a pretty standard medium blue.
