Re: History of Tropen Scholar?

Is this black Pelikano supposed to exist?

Hope someone might be able to help.

Thanks for your comment! I've since managed to identify it as an Aurea -- http://strangeknight.wordpress.com/2011/04/05/mystery-pen-black-and-burgundy-celluloid-button-filler/ But the pen could have been made by Omas. Apparently Aurea was a small pen company and had their pens made by Montegrappa etc.

Re: New Pelikan products for 2010

Am really looking forward to seeing the M800 Blue 'o Blue in person. The finish looks really interesting!

The Duo is cute. Just a question about the ink -- did Pelikan make it in-house or is it sourced from another manufacturer?

Re: Cologne Pen Show 2010

Wow! Looks like a great show!

How do I find out more about the pen shows in Germany and in Europe? Is there a calendar? Are the shows always fixed during certain months?
