Pelikan M605 Marine Blue Special Edition, M605 14K Fine, inked with J.Herbin Bleu Pervenche

My M605 Marine Blue demonstrator makes its tenth appearance in the pen rotation. I do like the combination of blue transparent with rhodium trim. Pelikan should make this design in other sizes.


If there is anything, I like more than a rhodium trim pen its a full rhodium plated nib. This fine nib entered my collection with the M605 White Transparent last November, and this is its fourth use. It is an OK modern fine nib - writing broader than my older ones.


Bleu Pervenche translates to English as Periwinkle Blue and is a lovely turquoise colour that shades very well. The colour turquoise has to be one of my favourites, it reminds me so much of the sea over pure white sand, and that image takes my mind to some happy places.


Pelikan M605 Marine Blue Special Edition, M600 14K 0.7mm CI, inked with Pilot iroshizuku ajisai

The M605 Marine Blue is one of my two M600 size blue demonstrators. I think this one is the better looking of the two due its silver (rhodium) furnishings. 


I own three Richard Binder ground 0.7mm cursive italics, one is a M250 nib, one is a M800 nib and this one, modified from a M600 medium nib. The 0.7mm line width is the sweet spot for my normal writing size. This nib is a joy to use and makes my writing look good. 


Ajisai which is Japanese for hydrangea is lovely blue colour that shades slightly but doesn't appear to sheen. 


Pelikan M605 Marine Blue Special Edition, M600 14K Broad, inked with Noodler's Zhivago

My very blue M605 Blue Marine makes its second appearance in rotation, it is fitted on this occasion with a two-toned M600 14K Broad nib that writes like a medium and this combo is inked with one of my earliest Noodler's inks - the black with greenish undertones Zhivago. Zhivago is the most used ink in my collection, being used eleven times, but it has been a while since time number ten which saw a pen on the 4th November 2013 - 692 days ago!
