Pelikan Reviews

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.

Tradition 215 Collection
A wonderful pen, nibble and beautiful looks, that writes very smoothly for a steel nib. I have a medium nib, but writes more like a fine.

Souveran 600 Collection
Well, I have been wanting a Souveran ever since I got back into writing with a FP. I have three of the 200 class and have been very happy with them. I finally decided to pull the trigger and get a Souveran. This pen, what an absolute joy with which to write. It doesn't even feel like I am writing. In my hand, the pen just floats along the paper. Never experienced anything like it. Thank you again, Pen Chalet!

Very, very impressive and smooth writing pen for thirty some odd $$.. And it's a Pelikan! Great pen for the money and service from Pen Chalet was excellent. Considering this is Christmas season, I was surprised at how quickly this order arrived.

M205 Blue Marbled
Though I like classic fountain pens, like Parker "51"s, this Blue Marbled Pelikan M205 is what I keep next to my reading chair in my study. It is totally reliable ... I can pick it up to jog down notes from what I am reading and know it will start without a skip. Pen Chalet gave me a great price and great service when I bought it from them. -Rob

Leather Pouch
This pouch is quite nice, well-made and holds larger pens like the Conklin Duragraph, All-American. I have stuffed it with 2 Duragraphs and an All-American. It is well-padded.

It is too large for a shirt pocket but fine for a coat or vest pocket. I keep it in a handy desk drawer to protect the pens from my metal desk. The item is all Black, unlike the item pictured,the Pelikan emblem unobtrusive, since I own no Pelikan pens.

The service from Pen Chalet is admirable.

M205 Blue Marbled
This is a beautiful pen (chatoyance!) with great build quality. I purchased a fine nib which performed perfectly straight out of the box. In my experience (and a lot of this depends on ink and paper), it writes more like a medium-fine than a fine. If you want a true fine, I would recommend ordering an extra-fine.

Pura
Very much pleased with the Pelikan Pura P40 fountain pen! It is with a medium nib and I am using the Pelikan Edelstein Tanzanite ink. I am using it when I travel for meeting notes with my Leuchttrum B5 Composition Notebook. No bleed through, no shadowing. Pelikan P40 cap posts securely (snaps) onto barrel.

Souveran M400 Tortoiseshell Brown
This pen wrote so smooth out of the box. It's now my go-to pen for daily writing, and I've been quite happily productive because of it. The tortoiseshell design is gorgeous with a lovely amber pearlescence. The piston mechanism feels smooth and sturdy. It's a smaller pen, which makes it perfect for portability and less hand cramping for long writing sessions. The nib has a touch of springiness and the flow is wet without being overbearing. Overall, I think I'm very satisfied with the purchase.

205
This Is a very classy, stylish pen. It has a few details that at the price being sold here make it a great value. On the top of the plunger it has the Pelikan logo, it is made in Germany, and the resin is of good quality. It is about 13mm in width which for me is just right. Very understated color, not flashy and killer deal.

Souveran 800 Collection
I really got back into fountain pens several years ago and use them daily now. I have bought several pens by the normal brands - Lamy, Jinhao, Noodlers, Nemosine, TWSBI, Kaweco and Cross. My extensive research indicated that the Pelikan M800 was one of the best, if not the best, pens made. I decided to invest in this pen and am just blown away by its performance, looks, and feel. I would suggest to serious pen hobbyists that they go first class early and forget other lesser pens. I use this pen daily, but it will never leave my house! Pen Chalet's service was outstanding!

Souveran M800 Grand Place
The word "Grand" from its name is quite fitting for this lovely pen. I always have high expectations of Pelikan and once again I am not disappointed. The pen is aesthetically beautiful and a smooth writer. What else? Working with Pen Chalet to acquire this pen was a pleasure. They are attuned to customer service.

Tradition 200 Collection
I am somewhat new to fountain pens if you don't count my experience with them in 3rd thru 8th grades. After running the gamut of China made pens, I decided to try this German made pen. Let me say, I love it. Along with a Kaweco Sport that I purchased from Pen Chalet, this is my go to pen. This pen wrote beautifully right out of the box. With the China makes, I would always wash the nib first and let dry overnight. I was very eager to use this pen so I decided to forgo my usual routine. I filled it with Diamine Blue Sapphire (also from PC) and it wrote smooth as butter first time. I love this pen. I will purchase more. Than you, Pen Chalet.
