Sometimes when one is thinking of friends, or pens, it is easy to forget those who always have been there for you, like this pen that I have been using daily at work for the last ten years. I’m using it for signing documents, and for writing fancy retirement- and birthday cards…
The ink is my choice for this summer:
J. Herbin “Vert Empire”
See you in August for another pen…
For some reason I’m very fond of the torpedo-shaped Pelikans, and if it is a vintage pen, just better.
My 140 is of a late production with a narrow clip, engraving on the cap band and no Günther Wagner on the body.

Spring is here!
PS: I love this Pelikan catalog from 1955!
