Pelikan M815 Metal Striped Special Edition, M800 18K Italic Broad, inked with Diamine Tchaikovsky

The M815 Metal Striped makes its second appearance in the rotation; it has taken just over 4 ½ months for it to get to the top of my selections. I still find this pen to be very classy and weighty - I had forgotten that the body was 25% heavier than a standard M800.

This nib is possibly one of my favourite factory Pelikan nibs I own. It came into my collection 7 ¾ years ago and still writes with a deliciously broad wet line.

I am not sure what the composer Tchaikovsky has to do with the colour dark blue, but I don’t care. Diamine Tchaikovsky is a lovely deep dark blue that shades from this nib and sheens red where I have paused in the ligatures.
