Pelikan M415 Brown Tortoise, M400 14K Fine, inked with Noodler's Green Marine

With less bling than the later M400 Special Edition release, this M415 Brown Tortoise is more traditional in look. This was my first Souveran Pelikan and is still one of my favourites. I could happily use this little pen everyday.


This its the oldest nib in my collection. I bought it with an old West German M400 pen that I no longer use. As I have commented before I dare not try to polish this nib as I fear I might ruin it. It is a very nice writer.


One of last Noodler's inks I purchased the Green Marine gives a nod to the U.S. Marine Corps with their motto Semper Fidelis (always faithfull) on the label.


A nice straight dark green from this fine nib. A bit of shading occurs in places but no sheen is apparent.
