Pelikan M805 Stresemann Anthracite, M800 18K Broad, inked with Noodler's Hunter Green

I think this pen model has to my mind become the new 'classic' look of Pelikan pens. This M805 sized version will have a bigger brother late this year when the M1005 version is released. It does look slightly dour now compared to the M815 Metal Striped. 


My two toned M800 18K Broad nib arrived in my collection with the M805 Black/Blue Striated pen in 2015 and has been used five times since then. It is an OK modern broad nib without any faults, or much to commend it.


Hunter Green is one of earliest "Eternal" inks made by Noodler's. Eternal is their parlance is water resistant, UV resistant, chemical resistant, and forge proof. The ink itself is an average  green with little shading and no sheen. I guess it will useful if I spill my drink on my work journal while using this ink, but I have no real need for all its other security features.
