Pelikan M620 Shanghai, M620 18K Medium, inked with Rohrer & Klingner Magenta

The Shanghai reminds me of colourful Chinese lanterns - that was probably Pelikan's thought as well. The pen is semi-transparent making it easy to see the ink level. A beautiful pen from a series of beautiful pens. I am very OCD about getting banding on the cap to line up with that of the barrel.  

An 18K gold medium that orginally came with my Chicago pen. It is wet but is a bit of a hard starter with this ink. One to get looked at someday.

Rohrer & Klingner inks come in little round 50ml bottles that I find quite cute. The label is all business with the ink name in three languages (English, German and French) and the colour inside being featured around the edges of the label.

Yep very magenta, very saturated so no shading from this medium nib. A very bright pretty colour but ultimately boring. It will very colourful in my work journal and I will probably get a few comments about it if I use it in a meeting.
