My most expensive and blingiest pen - the M800 Royal Gold Radeon LE makes its sixth time into the rotation in the 18 months I have owned it. There is not much I can say about this beautiful pen other than I never tire of just gazing at it.

The image of this nib complete with scratches really shows what a hard life it has had before coming into my possession. It is a rare nib being a M800 size in 14K gold.  I have looked for one on the secondary market for years without success, and this one just come along as part of a pen purchase together with two other custom ground 18K nibs. This nib writes with a super fine (for a Pelikan) line. It has just the right amount “tooth” for me. Being 14K gold it is a perfect candidate to be modified to produce line variation via flex. Currently I can’t see myself shipping this nib off to John Mottishaw to get the nib thinned, but I will never say never.

This super fine nib does not do much for Montblanc Albert Einstein Grey. This ink does exhibit some nice shading but as I have said in the past - all grey inks shade.
