Currently Inked: Addition to October 2016 Line-Up

When I posted my October pen + ink line-up I mentioned that there were only 8 pens rather than my preferred 9 pens as a I was holding a spot for a new pen in transit. After an eventful journey from Eastern US with a side trip to Canada Customs, the pen has finally arrived.


Pen: Pelikan M400 Brown Tortoiseshell EF

Ink: Pilot Iroshizuku Ina-Ho

Sometime last year I became interested in Pelikan pens and started researching them. When I saw images of Pelikan White Tortoiseshells, I was smitt n. Alas, when I discovered these gems, they were no longer produced. Every so often I would go hunting on various Websites to see if an errant one would pop up for sale.

When I found out that Pelikan was releasing a special edition of the M400 in brown tortoiseshell, I knew that it was now or never.

Pilot Iroshizuku Ina-Ho is a new addition to my ink collection. I thought that the golden brown colour would be a nice match with the beautiful gold, orange and brown striations in the pen barrel.

A special thanks to Tom from Goldspot Pens for arranging to send this Pelikan to nest up here in Canada. I'll be working on a detailed pen review. Keep a look out for it.
