Pelikan Reviews

Edelstein Ink of the Year
Hello folks. Well, this is only the second brown ink that I have tried and ditto for a Pelikan ink.
For reference, I have this inked in a 1950's vintage Pelikan 400 brown tortoise fitted with an early 585 "script", medium nib. I would describe it as a moderate to wet flowing ink in this pen and very much to my liking.
This is a warm inviting brown color that shades quite nicely across multiply paper types. I believe it exudes character whether on premium copy, Staple's sugar cane, Rhodia or the smoothest Lamy and Tomoe River papers. I would say this is a well behaved ink with no serious issues. About the only downside is it does ghost a whisker on most all paper. In my opinion not objectionable enough to rule out "journaling" or using on both sides of the papers I've tried it on, with the exception being the sugar cane.
In short, this is a fantastic everyday ink for me. I thought brown inks would be boring; not so this one! I would have no compunction using Smoky Quartz in the business or legal environs.
I am price conscious yet tend to forage at the best online pen pastures. The Pen Chalet has earned its place in my grazing rotation. Their price simply could not be beat here in country(USA) on the inks I ordered and their service is top notch to boot. Just a great outfit.

Souveran 320 Collection
I was looking for a small, elegant purse sized ballpoint pen. I have several Pelikan fountain pens and love them all and was familiar with the ruby Pelikan fountain pen. So I purchased the petite ballpoint pen and am very satisfied with it. The only challenge is finding replacement ballpoint refills.

M205 Blue Marbled
Like my other Japanese pen, it is small and fits well in the palm of my hand. If you have big hands you might want to post the cap or invest in a larger pen. It is well made, elegant looking, and writes well. Be aware that this pen does not accept cartridges. It has a built-in proprietary piston fill mechanism. Overall, it's a great pen with a good price.

Leather Pouch
This case with the Green band is somewhat tighter than the earlier case I purchased with the black band. They are the same size, but this one will be snug until is is used a bit. It holds 3 pens easily if they are not all huge. One huge, one near huge and another mid-size fit nicely. That is - a Conklin All American, a Conklin Duragraph and a Waterman Phileas.

Souveran 600 Collection
At first I was bummed about hard starts and skipping on some side-to-side strokes. Then I washed it, and pushed the left tine up a teensy bit after looking at it under a loupe. Bang! All problems solved. It's smooth and pleasant, it never skips, the broad nib lays down a nice thick red line. It's light and attrwactive. This is my new grading pen.

205
Pelikan make the best clicky pens (and maybe fountain pens too, but that's another review). Perfect weight and size. Lots of refill options and that clip. The bird flew in.

Souveran M400 Tortoiseshell Brown
The M400 series is a wonderful smaller size pen, the perfect thing for a shirt/jacket pocket to use on a daily basis for meetings/on the run. The Tortoiseshell Brown is a great "special edition" run that stands out from the regular series and is still in the lower price point for "limited runs". I'm currently using the pen with some Noodlers Brown, I own a current production M1000 (reserved for signatures) as well as a set of M800's in red and green.
The real winner is Pen Chalet's customer service, they promptly handled a shipping issue with the order.

Edelstein Ink of the Year
I purchased the Edelstein Adventurine Green at the same time. Excellent, excellent inks. A joy to use. I have been searching for a satisfactory Brown ink for a long time & Smoky Quartz finally fills the bill.

Pura
I really enjoyed my conversations with Ron at Pen Chalet. He answered all my questions and was very helpful. I would recommend Pen Chalet to everyone who is interested in buying any writing instrument. My fountain pen arrived two days later. The fountain pen is great and I really like the extra fine nib. The converter works very well and the pen is easy to both hold and write with. The only draw back-if it is one- is that the cap is tight when uncapping, and when placing on the other end of the pen. Other than that it is great.

I am never disappoint in Pelikan pens and this is no exception! The color is beautiful, although darker blue in person, and the ink is exceptional! This is one of my favorites! Pelikans are trusted and well engineered pens. Not cheap, but you get something you can depend on!

M205 Blue Marbled
This was my first Pelikan pen and will not be my last! The writing quality is fantastic. You can really tell the difference between this and a Lamy Safari :) The color is amazing and changes a lot depending on the lighting. Sometimes it seems to almost glow while other times it appears dark and ominous. It's truly a well built pen. It is a little smaller than I had imagined, but I like to post the cap, and it makes it an excellent fit in my hand when doing so.

Classic M205
Purchased this Pelikan pen some time ago. I was shocked by how well the steel nib performed, after reading some negative reviews about it. I would say, it outperforms every steel nib I have in my collection i.e.. waterman, franklin-christoph, faber castell, etc. I also love the filling system and the way it handles any ink I've put into it.
