With a gift card given to me for Christmas I purchased another fountain pen, a Brown Marbled Pelikan M200 with a fine nib. They are a well respected fountain pen company, founded in Germany in 1832. I have always been attracted to their style and shape but never purchased one since their pricing starts in the low $100 range which is beyond my limits. So far I'm quite pleased and expecting to have my first novel finished by the end of the week. :-) I'll keep you posted.
