I had this in my cart last night, but forgot to checkout. Now I come back and it's gone. I don't remember the price, but the lowest was unlocked, maybe $140$ or so?
Bought during the last drop, and love it. Smaller pen, with a very qualit , somewhat small steel nib. The barely transparent brown section is the perfect look for someone who likes the idea of a demonstrator but doesnt like the look- can just see the ink if you look hard. Like all Pelikans the nib unscrews from section so can be swapped out and easily cleaned. The ink is great too and a perfect match. Only caution is be careful because Pelikan's have a way of multiplying. Got this and next thing I knew all the sudden I had a blue stripe M805 Souveran... No idea how that happened!
Got this yesterday, and I love everything about it. This is my first Pelikan, and the nib is smooth as butter. Great deal for a great pen!

Mine too!
I got into this drop last time around and I must say, the pen and the ink are amazing. I LOVE the smoky brown ink. Looks fantastic when writing in my journal, white/yellow notebook paper when I'm at work. The pen is of a quality resin and is fairly light. The nib is of good quality as well. To all the people getting in on the deal this time around you will love this setup.
How can I go about buying the matching ball point separately? Thanks

You'll have to Google around for a Pelikan K200 Smoky Quartz, you should find several online retailers who have it in stock.

Thanks for the reply, I found it, but man it's expensive!
Now I only have to hope it ships in time for the Holidays...
These is my new favorite pen!
Purchased during last drop even if:
- I don't like demonstrator pens;
- I don't like very light pens;
- I don't like brown;
Nevertheless I was willing to experience a Pelikan pen and since this was not clear transparent and was reasonably priced I've joined the drop for EF nib.
After receiving impressions:
- write smooth and nice. Best pen I have! Not that I have an impressive collection but to be better then this other pen just need to write alone :).
- Nice balanced pen even if I would prefer slightly more weight;
- The ink is really really nice (remember that I do not like brown color in general). Even with the EF nib it gives a nice color and shading .
After a while I realize that I do wish to use it daily (even when I have nothing to write :) ).
Highly recommended.
Looking forward for the M205 Aquamarine model.

looking forward for the Aquamarine as well...

Not cheep, but you see, these pens are some of the best made. Period.
This is a great buy! You will have to work hard to find the Fountain Pen alone for this price. The ink itself goes for $28-$30.
I bought this set last time around and i love it. Not really my color ink, but the combo is a great deal. I use the pen every day along with a 1947 Parker 51.
Ballpoints are out there. I expect they will be available for a while beyond when the FP sells out.
Is it possible to buy this foutain Pen separately, and then buy the matching ball point at a later date due to limited funding?
Does the pen come with the leather pouch, like when you buy it without the ink?
Having bought this set before the previous Massdrop had occurred, I just wanted to comment that I love my Pelikan M200. For a steel nib, it is very smooth. Buttery as they say. I have a Fine nib and it writes like a Western style Fine which is more like a Japanese Medium. I only have P E Smoky Quartz loaded in the pen, as well. Love the dark chocolatey brown. It is a darker brown. The combo is an excellent buy. You should be very happy with both the pen and the ink. My main ink (in my Lamy 2000) is Caroube de Chypre and this ink is a bit darker than that. I'd say the second picture below is a better representation of the ink. Enjoy!
Woah shipping already?

I'm happy about that!
Whelp, griped about this being a steel nib the last drop. Didn't purchase it. Saw it again, and caved. Here's to a gorgeous, limited run pen. Hope it writes well!

It's a huge error to lump all steel nibs together. Yes, many are junk...but a good steel nib is a good nib.

And at this price point? The only gold nibs out there at a similar price, are from Japan...some of the Pilot and Platinum models. Those are great buys, at least partially driven by exchange rates right now, I believe. Would I rather have a 14k modern Pelikan nib? For sure. An 18k? Maybe not; they're stiffer. And the price surcharge is getting to be substantial.

I don't need the pen (got an amber demonstrator) or the ink...got some nice browns, and overall far too many bottles. Otherwise, this'd be pretty high on my list.

Ohh, it will, and you will be happy
