Pelikan M620 Stockholm, M600 14K 1mm Stub, inked with Montblanc James Purdey & Sons Single Malt

One of my oldest M620 series pens makes its 21st appearance in my pen rotation. The Stockholm is a classic semi-transparent marble effect pen, a style that has four variations within the City Series.


My only Mike Masuyama custom grind nib, it came into my collection by way of Dan Smith now more famous as The Nibsmith. It produces a 1mm wide line and is quite wet - just how I like them.


The now standard 50ml cubed bottles used in most of Montblanc latest limited edition inks. It is a good shape for filling all manner of pens.


James Purdey & Sons is a UK manufacturer of game hunting guns and associated items. This ink, which is scented to smell like single malt whisky, was made complement a limited edition pen. I must say this ink is the best example I have of an alcohol-based scent - it smells exactly like a good single malt whisky. The smell also remains persistent on the page. The colour is brownish orange that is very similar in tone to that of J.Herbin 1798 Cornaline d'Egypte. The ink shades well from this broad stub, but no sheen is evident.


Pelikan M620 Stockholm, M620 18K Medium, inked with Omas Turquoise

Black and blue with silver flashes the M620 Stockholm is an interesting looking pen. It gets over shadowed in the M620 Cities series range by some of its more colourful brothers but I quite like it.


This a nice old 18K medium nib that just writes well.


I love a good Turquoise blue ink - they all shade beautifully and this Omas version is no exception.


Pelikan M620 Stockholm, M600 14K Fine, inked with Robert Oster Signature Peppermint

The M620 Stockholm is one of my many M600 pens. It bears a close resemblance to the Chicago (being more blue than the grey Chicago) and the marbelled pattern is the same as the Berlin and the Madrid. The M600 size is the most comfortable in my hand, though I would love if it was a bit heavier.


This nib is a bit of a mystery. It entered my collection with M620 Place de la Concorde, but being only 14K it is not the original nib for that pen. It has two chicks which makes it an older nib (new nibs only have one chick). It is a fine sized nib but writes like a modern extra fine. 


The last of my 30 Robert Oster inks to be used. I have nothing to say about this bottle that I haven't said before. A good design.


A very slight red sheen on the swab over on the top right corner. An interesting shade.


The fine nib doesn't show this ink to its potential. A slight red sheen and shading in places. A nice green.
