Pelikan 100 Fine Flex Nib

I was writing quotes with pens that I already have but I get asked about flex nibs all the time, and having bought a few of my favorite vintage flex pens from Go Pens here, I thought I’d highlight some gorgeous pens with flex nibs for those of you who might want to snap one up. If I don’t first. I have copied Gary and Myrna’s red box system to highlight the pen in question …

Handwritten Post – A Civilized Wardrobe

A friend of mine left this comment on one of my pictures awhile back, and I thought it was perfect. Indeed, fountain pens look as good in a pocket as a proper bow tie! To me, anyway.

Pelikan Souverän M1000

The beautiful, large Pelikan Souverän M1000 piston-filling fountain pen – the flagship of the Souverän series. The 18KT gold nib is a fine, but because it is such a large nib and a German-made nib, you can expect the fine to run on the broader side. This pen is new-old-stock, and is mint in its original box (box is incorrectly labeled as Green). Item #111 in Catalog #77

Extraordinary Pens – Pelikan 101 Coral Red

This 1937 101 piston-filler in coral red. This is a holy grail for Pelikan collectors, as the Coral Red is one of the rarest colors. This has an amber celluloid barrel and a fine, flexible nib. Pelikan has been producing lovely pens for years, and they continue to produce the modern 101N series, if you like this model and style. They won’t be coral red, though! No longer available, but other great pens like this …
