Pelikan M600 Vibrant Green Special Edition, M600 14K Fine, inked with Diamine Bach

I do like a green pen, and this one is a favourite. It is a pattern sibling to this year’s Vibrant Orange with both having material with sections of gloss and matte finish.

This nice fine nib is the original one purchased with this pen. This nib and pen combination has not been used together since the first use in 2015.

I seem to be having a run of Diamine Music series inks at the moment. This superb-looking brown ink named for the composer Bach. This ink shades like there are no tomorrow, but this is a common trait of brown coloured inks.

Pelikan M600 Vibrant Green Special Edition, M620 18K Medium, inked with Waterman Florida Blue

I like a green pen and this is as green as they come. It is the perfect big brother to my recently addition, the M320 Jade Green.

An old 18K M620 medium nib that has a slight fault (or is it a feature). Its tines are slightly too far apart so can be a hard starter at times with certain inks but when it does write it is so so wet. I really should get it adjusted one day.

Waterman Florida Blue was the third ink I purchased since I started counting and currently the second oldest still in use. It is a good mid-blue that works in any pen, it doesn't have much in the way of shading but sheens red on Tomoe River paper. This ink has subsequently been rebranded to Serenity Blue.

This is the 1400 pen rotation since October 2010.

Pelikan M600 Vibrant Green Special Edition, M620 18K Fine, inked with Noodler's Kiowa Pecan

The M600 Vibrant Green really lives up to its name. I couldn't resist it when I added to my collection almost two years ago.

Another of my older M600 nibs that writes a size less than what it says on the label. I don't believe it is due to wear it is just the fact that Pelikan nibs have gotten broader.

Yep - standard Noodler's bottle with catfish label.

A true nut brown - pun intended. A nice standard brown that probably doesn't show at its best from this relatively fine nib. The ink swab above shows its possible shading better.

Pelikan M600 Vibrant Green Special Edition, M600 14K Fine, inked with Graf von Faber-Castell Moss Green

The Pelikan M600 Vibrant Green Special Edition is the 40th Pelikan to enter my collection. It is also my 21st M600 sized Pelikan. I had no intention of buying a pen when I walked into Pen and Paper this morning. I was only there to say hello to the staff and check to see if any new Montblanc inks had come in. But when they showed it to me it literally called to me. I have a thing for green pens and this is as green as they come. This is one pen that looks better in real life than it does in images.  

A very wet factory fine nib - just how I like them.

I had to have an ink to match my new pen so I selected the Moss Green shade from Graf von Faber-Castell. I have become a fan of this brand since I purchased their Stone Grey shade of ink last month.
