Pelikan M805 Black, M805 18K Extra Fine, inked with Rohrer & Klingner Verdura

This M805 Black with silver trim pen had had a pretty hard life before it entered my collection. It shows some tarnish on the clip. I really don't care that it is not pristine, it still holds ink and works perfectly.


This full rhodium trim nib entered my collection with my Stresemann in 2016 and it is a true extra fine. These days it is possibly too fine for the size of handwriting that is my norm. It flows well and very smooth. I wish Pelikan could produce all their nibs like this one.


Verdura is pretty true green that make me happy just looking at it. The extra fine nib doesn't allow this ink much of a chance to shine. It does shade but I could not discern any sheen.
