Souveran M800 Demonstrator

[caption id="attachment_219" align="alignleft" width="250" caption="Photo of the Pelikan M800 Demonstrator with cap off"]Photo of the Pelikan M800 Demonstrator with cap off[/caption] I want this pen so badly. The sad thing is that it is a special/limited edition so eventually it will sell out. $350 is a lot to pay for a pen though.
With luck, I'll have some spending cash later in the year and they'll still be available.

It comes in two editions, one with engraving and one without. I think I like the non-engraved one better, but it's a real close call. The engraved one is far more 'demonstrator-ish'. I don't think I'll be using it for demonstrating as much as just writing when I'm feeling particularly technical.

On the other hand, my birthday is coming up... hint, hint. I do think I'm not pushing myself hard enough, I've found too much time to spend lusting after pens. The Pelikano Jr., however, is an awesome every day writer and knock-about pen. Highly recommended.

  1. That's a beautiful pen! My daily use pen for the last 18 months is the more mundane M800. ;-)

  2. I bought this pen on Friday....well worth the 384 dollars I paid for it and would do it again in a heart beat. Not only is this pen a great writer, but for me it is every day use and NEVER fails to start up a conversation. We as fountain pen lovers have a battle to fight and fight we must - the technology of the day is rendering pen and paper "ancient" in its scope and we cannot let this happen. I'm 26 and in love with my iPhone 3GS but writer letters on archival paper with pen I do. There are not enough people writing any longer...but this pen is sure to strike up a conversation. You never know who you might inspire to start writing!!!!!!!!!!!!
