PELIKAN fountain pen Elegance Classic P 205 black – NIB Steel F – 0PF930735
Purchased 3/5/16 eBay martemodena Albareto, Italy $88.00 + 5.90. Arrived 3/10/16.
Appearance & construction:
3/10/16: First impression. This is a very light pen. Feels fragile. Concerned that it might not be able to withstand daily use. But lightness doesn’t always mean fragile. It wrote immediately on first contact with paper. Perfect F. I like it thin and slightly wet — and continuously so. Out of the box, it hit the mark. However, there were signs of light skipping on the upper strokes of some letters. I’ll need to keep my eye on this. It’s now in the testing rack, ready to be put through its paces. It came with a single Pelikan cartridge, no converter. I’ve ordered a bunch of converters, so I should be fine. For testing, it’s loaded with the cartridge from the Stypen, which came free with the Pelikano P456.
