My Pelikan Green o’Green finally ran out of ink and another Pelikan comes into use. The M101N Tortoiseshell Brown is a reproduction of one of the original Pelikan models. What I really like about this pen is that while it is the same length as the M400 model it has a larger barrel diameter (something close to that of a M600), it really makes for good hand-feel. The nib that I have teamed with this pen is my extremely broad M250 BB. This nib is wet and lays down a thick but not very exciting line as it has very little width variation between horizontal and vertical strokes.
The ink proposed by my fountain pen database is a special edition by Montblanc the Meisterstück Blue. This ink’s last use was in a fine nib which didn’t really give much of an indication of how this performs, a use in a BB nib gives it room to show off. This ink does shade and performs very well on Rhodia paper (not that expected any thing less from Montblanc).
A pretty little bottle.
