Pelikan M605 Dark Blue, M600 14K 1mm Stub, inked with Rohrer & Klingner Cassia

It's been almost 18 months since I feature this Dark Blue and silver trimmed M605 in a post. I mentioned there that this pen came in M405 and M805 sizes and a really really wanted them. Well I can add two more reallys to those because these have become my new grail pens.


It started life as a double broad (BB) but fell into the hands of Daniel Smith and was turned into a 1mm stub by Mike Masuyama. This is one smooth wet nib, it does not have the line variation of some of my cursive italics but it is a lovely writer nevertheless.


Rohrer & Klingner Cassia is a vibrant violet ink that shades very slightly. I had expected more shading from the broad stub but it just isn't there. A lovely colour though.


Pelikan M620 New York, M620 18K Fine, inked with Rohrer & Klingner Cassia

The M620 New York has been long know in this household as the freshian cow pen. Black and white with silver trim it is a nice looking pen but doesn't rate compared to some of the others from this series.

An 18K Fine nib that is fine but otherwise not exciting.

Wow this Cassia ink is vibrant. It is very saturated so no real shading. It will certainly brighten up any page at the office.
