Workhorse Pens: Pelikan M800 Stone Garden — The Gentleman Stationer
As I noted above, I don’t have that many Pelikan pens in my personal collection, but those I do have see a lot of use as daily writers - what I call “workhorses.” If you’re looking for a pen with a classic design and rock solid reliability, the Pelikan Souveran series has stood the test of time, and you can’t go wrong with a Pelikan M800.
If you could only have one pen, what would you pick?
This is a recent surprise to myself. But I'd probably pick a Pelikan m800 or m1000. They're solid and any nib size I've tried has been wonderful.

[New Pen Day] Tranquility in the Stone Garden
Today my newest acquisition came by the mail, the Pelikan M800 Stone Garden Special Edition. It was a lucky find in a well hidden online store from Berlin, where a last specimen was available, equipped with a fine nib, which would have been my first choice, so I was pretty happy to locate that pen. I am currently probing into different brands and types of pen to select my next 'I want to collect something' item.

Size Comparisons Pilot Custom URUSHI
You know, say, on Pelikan Souverän M800, you can still talk about aesthetics, something like “I know Palikan may not be considered as one of those beautiful fountain pens, I guess there are some people feel the pen is rather ugly, but I have found the pen is beautiful in its own way…”. So, you have something to talk about.

What pen gave you the most buyer's remorse? The least?
I highly recommend. Since finally getting a Pelikan Souveron M800 (which I absolutely, positively, utterly, and fully adore), I rarely use my M120 or M200 because they feel quite flimsy in comparison. I like gushing writers so the Lamy 2000 oblique double broad, the TWSBI Diamond 580 stub, and the Sailor 1911L Cross Point are tops.

I hate packaging!!!!!
Got my Pelikan M800 on a literal paper container from Amazon. I bought that pen for 300$... I don't have the warranty too... It's as if the pen was sold as a B-stock or something (there is a very very small scratch on the lip of the pen, but it is unnoticeable without a loupe and the pen had been writing splendidly for more than 2 years....).
The New M800 Black-Red’s Surprising ‘Old’ Look
Early last month, I wrote about a new initiative at Pelikan that would see the long standing translucence of the Souverän’s barrel eliminated. Gone would be the translucent stripes present for the last 40 years of the line’s heritage, exchanged for an opaque replacement. The news took many, myself i...
My first, but not my last, Sailor
It’s the nib - and the excuse to use several different colors of ink in the myriad colors Sailor produces - but the nib, especially the 21k variety are incredible. They make me want to write every chance I get. Now I don’t pre-judge any fountain pens when I see people raving about them. Which is why I now own a Pelikan M800 (thought they looked ugly at first; now they’re beautiful), and I recently jumped on the Custom 823 train - these things have a magical quality to them that makes me go, “damn”, every time I pick them up.
