Pelikan M800 demonstrator FP

Now that I own two Pelikan M805s, I thought I might want to get another one; but this time a demonstrator 800. I thought the fuyugaki ink might look pretty in the transparent pen. Anyway. I got it from Swisherpens in the US; I used to buy things from them, and decided to use this vendor again.

I like it. With an M nib and fuyugaki ink, it writes very nicely. I prefer this one actually to my M805 with an F nib, though I like all of them.

Pelikan M805 blue with silver trim FP

I have been using a Pelikan M805 black with silver trip FP with an F nib, for the last 6-7 years. It's been good for me, but now that I have multiple colours of ink to play with, I thought I could get another one with a different nib size/trim. I saw a solid blue M805 at a very reasonable price off the eBay, and so I went ahead and got it.

It took only 3 days or so to get here. Most impressed. The pen performs as usual, but I'm still trying to get used to its 3B nib. I might have to sharpen/grind this nib to suit my writing style though...
