My largest Pelikan is back into rotation. The M1000 is almost too big for my hand and I find it comical to use.

I love the feel of this big, soft, wet Broad nib. I really wish the M800 sized nibs were more like this one.

I like the cute, little J.Herbin bottles but they are too shallow to fill the big M1000 nib, so I have to resort to a syringe to fill the pen with ink.

A very reddish-pink ink that is not at all suitable for the office but I use it there anyway. It does shade quite nicely with this broad nib and is a generally fun ink.
