In my shirtpocket, Jan 2017: Pelikan M120N and Pelikan 400 (1950-54)

Friends,

From a whim I have made this a New Year’s Resolution: To publish a monthly feature “In my shirtpocket” where one pen is going to be exchanged and a new one presented every month. If short of time perhaps only with pictures, another month perhaps with a presentation and perhaps even writing samples. Sometimes I’m willing to sell the presented pen, but definitely not today. (Even if I have a still sealed DHL package with another M120N with F nib, which I myself have never seen…)

The M120N is filled with Sailor Kiwa guro black and the 400 with J. Herbin “Terre de Feu”.

The Pelikan 400 needs no further presentation as it is one of most iconic pens in the history of writing instruments and you can find a lot of information elsewhere. Let me just show an old picture from Pelikan.com.

Pelikan 400

Some pictures of my sixty years old classic Pelikan 400, green striped. This is one of the iconic pens in the history of writing instruments. (It is still made today, with a bit more “bling”, under the name Pelikan M400.) For this particular pen I have a one-pen original Pelikan leather case in green and black. When writing letters I am mostly using  this pen…
