Pelikan M205 Yellow Demonstrator, M400 14K 0.6mm CI, inked with J.Herbin 1798 Cornaline d'Egypte
The M205 Yellow Demonstrator is one of my oldest and least expensive Pelikan. It scores the lowest rating so gets inked up with all my sparkly inks.
I picked up this two tone M400 14K 0.6mm Cursive Italic nib almost six months ago off eBay. I am always on the lookout for Richard Binder custom ground nibs. The seller of this nib said it was too crisp for them and while it is crisper than my other CIs it is not overly so. A great little nib!
Its the first use for this latest edition of J.Herbin 1798 range. Cornaline d'Egypte or Egyptian Carnelian is a brown-red mineral that was used in ancient times to make signet rings and scarabs.
Cornaline d'Egypte is certainly an interesting shade of orange-brown. The silver sparkles provide a nice addition of bling. This fine cursive italic probably doesn't show this ink to its best. I quite like this ink.
