Pelikan Souveran M600 & M605 Fountain Pens $356.80 + Delivery @ Peter's of Kensington eBay

160
POKEN20

Bit of a niche deal, but a fantastic price for this classic fountain pen. Normally retails for $400+.

Note that Pelikan nibs are notoriously broad, especially compared to Japanese brands, so expect this to write more like a broad nib.

Main link is to the Red and Black, medium nib. Other colours and nib sizes are also available at the same price:

    That is a good price for a Pelikan in Aus.

    Funny sort of OzBargainer who'd spend that much though!

      I got the same vibe when I posted the Longines deal. Both have relevance and I also enjoy both good pens and watches. My priciest pen is nowhere near this though. My Waterman is around the $100

      Plenty of OzBargainers spend much more on a gaming PC, watch, phone, etc. and no-one bats an eyelid.

      For many, nice pens are as much a hobby as any of those, plus a good fountain pen well looked after can literally be handed down through generations and tend to hold value pretty well :)

        Plenty of ozbargainers would say you can't enjoy a pen the same way you can enjoy those products. To each their own

      My two fanciest pens I got at clearance prices from Peter's: a Parker Urban and a Waterman Hémisphère for $20 each (rrp >$100).

      That's an OzBargain level of saving!

      Given how many $300+ lego deals get posted on here, I'd say ozbargainers have plenty of disposable income!

    Dangggg here i am using my free xiaomi mijia refillable pen…

      Free stationary cupboard generic refills for me, they kind of fit into a pen that I got on clearance for a few dollars.

        I’ve got lots of hotel ones around the house from work travel. Some are pretty bad but others are great.

    I have an M1000 and it's one of my favourite pens. I'd probably go for this had I not just bought a Visconti Homo Sapiens.

      Umm, let's try to keep it a little more politically correct. That's not that good innit.

      I picked up one of those (M1000) 2nd hand about 15 years ago. Again, a lovely pen - but gawd it is big. I certainly can't use it posted (ie. with the cap mounted on the back end of the pen).

      •  

        It is a pretty huge pen, but I have pretty huge hands, so it suits me well. I also don't use it posted, though; it's quite a light pen, but the length makes it a but unwieldy when posted.

        •  

          As I understand, the 800 and 1000 models have oh-so-smooth brass refill mechanisms which up the weight too.

  •  

    Used to be cheaper via CultPens before they started charging GST. I think WritingDesk might still have it for cheaper, but yeah Peter's is good too.

    •  

      COVID really messed the shipping time up a little as well, frankly if you can avoid overseas shipping, I'd recommend avoiding it.

    •  

      Showing as OOS at TWD right now, but 220 GBP less VAT equals about $315, plus shipping. Their rates are usually pretty reasonable, so yeah, theoretically a bit cheaper but no stock and then you're waiting who knows how long for international shipping.

    there is also this one for a different style
    https://www.ebay.com.au/itm/264491558877

    looks like it has a similar nib to the M1000

  •  

    I've got a M800 waiting to be refilled. Lovely pen. Perhaps just a little large for my hand. M600 is a nice size

    Horrible price to replace this now - so it tends to live at home (where I'm less likely to lose it).

    In the Pelikan world, 400 was the standard size. In the modern Pelikan world M600 took that crown, plus its backward compatibility with 400 nibs. Meaning: M600 can take M400 and M200 (steel) more affordable nibs.

    Other Souverans (M300 to M1000 have their own nib sizes (with few exceptions) that are incompatible with these. http://www.richardspens.com/ref/nibs/pel_nibs.htm

    I'm saying that you can't go wrong with an M600.
