Pelikan M600 Tortoiseshell White Special Edition, M620 18K Medium, inked with Aurora Blue

Into rotation comes a Pelikan that until I bought the M600 Pink this month was the most feminine in my collection. The M600 Tortoiseshell White like its little brother features white cap, nib section, and blind cap with a semi-transparent honey coloured tortoiseshell pattern barrel.

Another of M620 18K Gold nibs - I own heaps of these and the older they are, the finer they write. This could pass easily for a modern day fine.

The Aurora bottle is a good shape for dipping big nibs into fill. Though no dipping to fill today as I alway fill my white nib section Pelikans using a syringe.

The nib writes fine and Aurora Blue leans royal aka with a slight purple tinge. It is not my favourite blue by a long shot but it is a good, safe, everyday writing ink.
