Pelikan M620 Piccadilly Circus, M620 18K Medium, inked with Diamine Sepia

The M620 Piccadilly Circus is one of the more colourful Pelikan’s that I own. Pelikan is usually such a conservative company when it comes to their designs, but this is seriously out there.


This medium 18K M620 nib is the one that came with this pen. This combination is together only for the second time, and it has been almost seven years since their first use. Most of these old 18K M620 nibs write very well, and this one is no exception.


Diamine Sepia is a lovely light brown shade. Is it really sepia? - I thought sepia was supposed to be a few shades darker and more reddish. Oh well, this is still a good ink that shades very well.

The Piccadilly Circus is probably the most under-rated of the M620 Cities/Places series of pens. I wasn't a fan of its colour and pattern in the beginning but I have grown to like it.


One of my many old M620 18K Medium nibs. It writes well with a fine but wet line.


Dark Lilac was Lamy's special edition ink of 2016. It is a rich dark purple that does show slight shading from this fine medium. I really like this colour of ink and look forward to using it at the office during the week.

The Piccadilly Circus is one of more controversial coloured pens in my collection. It took me a while to come around to its red-pink, blue and silver-grey mess of colours. It has been in my collection for over 6 years now.


An older M600 nib - apparent from the two chicks in the brand and therefore a good fine fine. Writes pretty well but is slightly dryer than the norm..


Franklin-Christoph Loden is an interest shade of khaki - almost a racing green colour. Some good shading even from this fine nib but no sheen whatsoever.
