Review by Laura Cameron
I do love my Pelikans, so when we saw that Pen Chalet had the Pelikan M205 Demonstrator (MSRP $200, on sale now for $120) on sale at a screaming good price, I decided I needed one.
The Pelikan M205 Demonstrator has a pen body made of clear resin. It has Pelikan’s standard piston-filling technology, so it’s only usable with bottled ink, but that’s not a problem in this house! The M205 has silver trim and your choice of standard steel nibs in XF, F and M sizes.
The Pelikan is on the smaller side coming in at 4.875″ long and a measly 0.4oz and 11g.
I find Pelikans to be lovely writers and this one, with a fine nib, is no exception. It fills easily and writes right away out of the box.
This Pelikan joins the other two in my collection; last year’s M205 Star Ruby and an M200 Blue Marbled from the 1980’s from my dad.
It also joins other demonstrators like my TWSBI ECO’s and my Moonman. I do love being able to see the ink and the inner workings of the pen!
