Today I have a special little something for you.
I just received my pre-ordered Pelikan pen of the year, in the beautiful gift box together with the fitting ink of the year, and it’s a special little beauty.
But first things first. Look at that beautiful box!
The feeling of this pretty box is a lot more qualitative than any of the others I had before. I’m not usually one for boxes, but I’ll make an exception for this one.
The silver one in the background is the fitting Pelikan pen catalogue I got from my supplier as well. It’s a nice touch, and I appreciated the thoughtfulness.
Actually, my supplier was extremely thoughtful, adding little touches that made getting this package feel like a special gift – even though I paid for it.🙂
If you want to oder Pelikan products in Germany, I can fully support the shop of Fritz Schimpf (no affiliation other than being a happy customer🙂 ). They have stellar customer support, very helpful personnell and the small additional touches are amazing. I got a handwritten note with this, that they are hoping I will have a lot of fun with my new pen (written with ink, of course), the warranty card was filled in, and the catalogue. The box was very securely packed and beautifully wrapped. A wonderful experience!
But now, onward with the pen.
The box opens to a beautiful package, the pen and the ink of the year.
I was completely surprised to see the pen isn’t a clear demonstrator, but a frosted one. I love demonstrators, but this suits the pen perfectly and makes the aquamarine colour come out beautifully. A wonderful piece of art.
Did I mention I love my new pen?🙂
I think this would make a beautiful gift package for pen enthusiasts (who aren’t like me and can’t wait to order it themselves).
My little beauty has an EF steel nib, something I wanted to try out for ages now. I had hoped the aquamarine color would come out different than the blue demonstrator I just
got, and I wasn’t disappointed. I have to say I like this one even better than the blue.
Though I won’t tell my blue demonstrator that, or it’ll pout.😉
And here is another picture, photographed against the light, to show just how beautiful that frosted finish is. It might not be as see-through as a clear demonstrator, but it’s giving this pen a little special something that I really like. And I will still see the ink slosh around inside, so all’s good.
I haven’t tried it out yet, and I think I will celebrate it a little. I’m really looking forward to my EF nib, and will let you know how it feels for me, who’s usually leaning more towards the M and B nibs until now.
I hope you got a nice impression of this beautiful pen. I couldn’t wait to show it off, to be honest.🙂
So worth it!
