Teal and turquoise are among my favorite colors, so when I saw the Pelikan M205 Apatite, it was an insta-buy (approx. $149.23 via Appelboom). I preordered early and waited for a while and last week it finally arrived!
There’s not a lot to say about the M205 that we haven’t already said in the past:
The Pelikan M205 comes with a resin body, and trim in a variety of colors. They chose silver trim with the Apatite, and I think it’s a great match – blue and silver is so classy. The Pelikan M205 is a piston-filled model so no options for cartridges, but especially in the demonstrator body I think that adds interest. My inaugural fill was with a sample of the Pelikan Edelstein Apatite ink, made to match the pen! The only thing to know about Pelikan, particularly if you like finer nibs, is that Pelkans are definitely Western nibs, and often err on the wider side. They are available in EF, F, M and Broad; I chose a fine nib this time.
Pelikans are a great, albeit wet, writing experience. In playing with in the last week or two, I’ve really enjoy the fine nib. It’s wet enough to be very smooth (without being scratchy), but also fine enough for my tastes. Overall, I love the color of the Apatite and I’m always happy to add another bird to my effin’ (Pelikan) flock.
