Pelikan M605 White Transparent Special Edition, M620 18K Medium, inked with Pelikan Fount India Black

I am still not a fan of the look of this pen. The white and clear transparent is just in my opinion boring. I would have much rather a clear demonstrator than this design. Having said all that it is not about to be removed from the collection, so all my complaining is mute.


Another of my five M620 18K medium nibs, this one is not as good a writer as some of the others but mostly gets the job done.


The best a black ink can do in my opinion is to be dark and dense, and this black from Pelikan’s standard range achieves that.

This is probably the least favourite of my "white" M600s. Its just too white. I worry about staining it so I use very safe inks with it.


The only 18K full rhodium plated nib I own. It came with my M625 Red pen and it is quite a nice writer for a boring medium nib.


Its been almost two years since I last used this ink and my thoughts have not really changed. It is still a nice shade of red-brown that does not shade.
