I love these old Pelikanos. They will never let you down. The new ones are probably just as good; but I just don't like how they look as much. These write well with a nice wet line, don't leak, easily take a converter and are indestructible. The only long term issue I've found is that after using one exclusively for over a year, the cap quit really locking onto the body--seems the mechanism wore out. I haven't figured out how to take the cap apart and renew whatever wore out, but poking around in there and pushing things around with the tip of a compass helped!

One of the nicest "universal" or "standard" converters on the market. If you look closely, there are some details that do make it work better. The rubber on the section end is softer and has a double seal compared to all the others I have. Does that make it better? I don't know. My others don't seem to leak, cause skipping or any other issues either.

You know, these pens are just okay. Not my favorite. For one thing, the plastic is kind of smelly. It's not a bad smell--kind of fruity. But it's weird.

Secondly, I have a few of these in different colors and they all have different issues. Some skip. Some have too much flow. Others write fine but leak into the cap, which is a real pain.

I was excited because I thought it could be like getting a Pelikan on the cheap, but it's no Pelikan. I'm not a big fan of the look of the new Pelikano, so I picked up a few of these, plus they're piston fillers. I really like piston fillers and I applaud the design attempts to make this pen easier to service by one's self. On the other hand, I have had Pelikans for years that have required no service in decades and so maybe making a pen that comes apart easily is part of the problem; it doesn't stay together very well.

The nib doesn't stay in adjustment--hence the flow problems. They seem to always be leaking, so you get ink on your fingers. This never happens even with Pelikans that cost about the same as the Noodler's, the $35 bottom of the line, but still very nice, Pelikan M100.

Great eraser for all kinds of uses. I've always had one of these since I was first introduced to them in architecture school back in the 1980s. You can't go wrong. It won't even tear cheap pulp paper in Soduko books for example (when you have to erase all your answers and start again, for example).

Nice notebooks. The paper is very high quality and smooth but with a little bit of tooth that makes writing in it a pleasure. Works great for fountain pens. Color of ruled lines is light violet, which I like.

Nice ink. Can't complain. Color is vibrant and the ink flows as it should on a variety of different paper types. Has not bled on anything I've used it for.

These stapler is effective, easy to use and handy. It easily staples through ten to fifteen sheets of paper. I bought it for my wife, who is a teacher, as an item that would fit in the Moleskin Travelling Collection Case along with the Sun-Star Stickyle Pen-Style Scissors and a Recife Baby Press fountain pen. All three items fit easily in the case, are color-coordinated and handy.
