The best replacement for an M800 is.... Well another M800!
that is my absolute favorite pen!
Those are beauties, Larry!
Thanks, Mark. I'll have to give it a try again. Last time I used it, I thought it left a permanent stain on one of my nibs. Not an ink stain but almost like a water mark.
Scabiosa stained the heck...
Isn't Salix one of their Iron gal inks? Do you think it will dry up in the feed? Just curious as I like to have some sort of waterproof/iron gal ink in a pen always ready to go. I generally use...
Pelikan M800 Tortoise with Edelstein Topaz
Pelikan M640 Northern Lights with Edelstein Tanzanite.
Once these are empty, I think I need to break the Pelikan habit for a little while...
Mine shipped yesterday!
Very nice! Enjoy your new stuff.
I think someone mentioned it already, but for the full size Midori book, the bandit apple carnet books fit perfect and IMO the paper is better.
I use my full size for everything.
Pelikan M640 Northern Lights. Medium nib with Pelikan Edelstein Tanzanite. Haven't used this pen in ages. Forgot how much I like it.
It amazes me how different the 640 special editions are made...
When I fill a pen from an ink bottle, I make sure to clean off the section well, then just give the nib and feed a quick wipe if they need it. The ink will just keep coming out of the feed and nib if...
Wow that is some pen, Brian! I'm gonna go start collecting cans right now!
Same here! M800!
You may be able to twist it back to where it lines up. Just be careful not to bend the tines. That happened to one of my 51's when I took it apart to clean the feed and screwed the section back on....
What nib did you get on it? I like the Preppy medium nibs! I also like that the Preppy is easy to convert to eye-dropper. for a first FP I don't think you will be let down.
Very nice pen! You can sometimes pick up the 45 nibs pretty cheap and they change out very easy, if you wanted a finer nib. Enjoy the pen!

Vac 700 (1.1 mm Stub) R&K Scabiosa
I am on a Demonstrator kick lately.
I never thought I would like purple ink, but this is my favorite!
TWSBI Diamond 580 Med nib with Noodler's Liberty Elysium...
I haven't had a Fountain pen inked up for about 3 months... It was tough to decide what to ink up first!
Not a recent acquisition, but today I got back a Sheaffer PFM and Parker Duofold Big Red from Danny Fudge. I have had them for a while but never got around to restoring them myself, so I decided to...
My Stealth Slant arrived on Wednesday. Haven't been able to try it out yet, but hope to this weekend. I will post a pic when I have more time.
Thank you to everyone who participated (and still participating in the few open threads) in this years auction! It was a great one.
I can't wait to try me some Will G's Shaving soap!!! Thanks...

You can have the cheese, I want the soap!
This one is done. Thank you to all who participated.
No issue at all, Ronnie! Thank you!
Congrats Mark, and thank you, Brian!
The Most Wonderful Time of the Year!!!!!
Some really nice pens and other Nib items in this year's Auction!
Nice looking lizard! I am not familiar with that lighting setup, just make sure his basking spot is at least 110F. Looks like a male.
I bred Beardies for a long time, stopped when I got married. Had 2.3, great breeders and pets! I also bred Crested Geckos before they were available all over the place like they are now. They are...
