FYI just bought a Pelikan M800 from UK retailed + free Pelikan leather pouch + free shipping for less than this drop, so somehow glad I missed it...
Jeeeeefff
Which store did you get it from?
FullObeans
Cultpens. They ran a promo with extra discount recently, but even without their prices are competitive
How long this drop lasted? I saw the email late and it is already done.
D@#% you Massdrop! D@#% you!! No more Pelikan deals!!! Actually, pleased to get a blue/black combo. I like broader nibs and the 800/805 Bs are awesome.
Thank for giving me a yummy deal and then closing it a few minute later right after I found the money for the drop!

😂😂😂 same
Black-green sold out already. That saves me from spending $300...
M800 under $300. Well done MD.

Must've been because they only had three of them.

Bought it on eBay, new in box for $175 (shipped from Germany).
Hi I want to get this pen, but want the decorative handwriting model 800 that comes with the italic nib. Anyone know of any deals for this? Thanks.

Thanks so much Mulrich. I truly appreciate your insight. Never knew you could do that. You live you learn :-)

I would suggest getting a Bold, so that the nibmeister has plenty of material to work with and then send it off to someone like Mike Masuyama or Pendleton Brown.
Mike tends to grind his Italics a bit sharper whereas Pendleton strikes a balance between smoothness but still enough line variation.
EDIT: Aaaaaand just like that. They're out of Broad :/
Good lord! Look that that beauty!
You can get this pen right on Amazon for $474..64. Why in the world would I spend an additional $60 here?

Why go on Amazon, when you can get this pen shipped to the US for a few dollars less from La Couronne du Compte, thanks to the exchange rates and not being charged VAT. I got my M805 Stresemann from them for $350 USD shipped.
Regarding QA claims listed below on the Pelikan nibs: Both the M400 White Tortoise (purchased here on MD) and my M805 Stresemann needed a bit of adjustment to the nibs, but it was minor and did not require any smoothing pads. They're both two of the nicest writing pens I own.
hey guys, in case you wanna buy pens from CultPen.com, my advice is don't even try. it's much cheaper $300 Pelikan M805, but the pen writes horrible and even worse than lamy safari. I had a horrible experience with the pen and their service. returned the pen immediately after inking it up. they are arrogant and and doesn't help much. i wasted my time and money. it's just happened this month. below is how the pen writes. noodler's the heart of darkness with tomoe river paper. no further explanation needed.

i searched online before i returned the pen, emailing them about the QC issues, but they later responded that the pen had no issue. that pissed me off.

I've bought 2 Pelikans from CP with no issues. Great nibs and service.

Thats where I bought my Stresemann, shipped super quick via courier from Italy. They ship worldwide. Beautiful pen. I love and would buy it again with a different nin size (broad is pretty broad, haha) but the massdrop price is not very competitive this time.

That's around what I paid from Cult Pens out of the U.K. with free shipping.
Could we have some M700/710 ?
Back in January, I purchased one of these from LaCouronne du Comte for 327.28 EUR, which came out to $350.67 USD. With today's exchange rates, that comes out to $349 and change. It's not as cheap as the Cult Pens price, but their service was excellent, and I'm looking forward to purchasing the M405 Stresemann from them sometime in the next couple of months.
This and the demonstrator has been on my waiting list for a while, but it seems the EF nibs have not been available to last few Pelikan drops. Well, will keep waiting.

If you live within CultPens' delivery radius then you could get the EF Pelikan from them, for cheaper than here.

Thank you for the comment. Saw your other comment as well. I live in the US and had mixed experience with shipping from Britain. Used to order Dunhill from their London ship, and they would take care of all the custom duty and stuff. But at other times, had to use a third party carrier to clear custom and it was headache.
Found this at Cult Pens for $345 USD In "F" (not M405 - M805, just like here). Due to arrive this week. Very excited.

Strange. I mean my experience was that the pen worked very well, but then I felt that the nib had micro scratches so I contacted them and they said they could exchange it for me if I sent it in. I wanted to make sure the next unit didn't have problems so I asked them to send me an image and as far as I could tell, the next one was only marginally better. I didn't take the risk as I'd have to pay for the shipping, and I knew that my own at least wrote well. So I kept it.

i had quite a few pens in my collections. the M805 they sent me was way way below the writing experience i had with any of my $150-price-range pens ( pilot stella 90's[springy, smooth with quite line variation, great pocket pen] fine is 3 times much better than that of M805) . Honestly it just writes relatively close to lamy safari medium nib, but way drier. I might purchase an M400 two-tone gold nib from https://nibsmith.com/ and maybe a aurora optima in the future. I'm super disappointed with cultpen and will never ever purchase any pen from them. that's my just personal experience with cultpen. i also recorded a video to show them the nib performance.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GBVbvU2YaHQ. Can't believe them told me the pen is totally not faulty, treating me like a dumbass.
Wish there was an EF option
I would love to see the M805 Streesemann offered. $540 for a demonstrator is a lot of money......
hmgreen
Wish granted :)
That's the most expensive TWSBI I have ever seen. lol

Hear Hear! I want to hurl every time I hear of TWSBI's fantastic customer service. The best customer service in the world is the one that has never been contacted!
As for the other complaints noted about various pens and vendors - don't blame the pen manufacturer for a bad vendor experience. If you didn't buy your pen on the grey-market, Pelikan will honor it's warranty. And I'm fairly certain that they test their nibs for QC before shipping.
Ghostwriter
but in the fountain pen world often you get the best of both crossing your fingers on customer service and paying a luxury price.
I live in Massachusetts, USA, and wonder what "Manufacturer's Warranty" means - does anyone know? In the past I have been told by ChartPak, that per Pelikan, they only honor the "Manufacturer's Warranty" for those dealers/sellers on Pelikan's provided "authorized" list which did not include MassDrop, and other major online channels. I ask because I like to know the details before a purchase.
Does anyone know what happened to the Pelikan M205 Amethyst? It's not even in the closed recent drops. It was here yesterday ...
writerstephen
I believe the drop was limited to 20 units.
When your broke as f but your drooling over this D:
Thanks again for joining this drop! We have submitted the group's order with the vendor for the Pelikan Souveran M805 Demonstrator Special Edition and they are working hard to prepare it for shipment.
As soon as the group's order is ready at the vendor's location, they will send the bulk shipment to our warehouse in New Jersey where our warehouse team will break it up into individual orders and ship them. The current estimated ship date from our warehouse is 1/16.
We will keep the group updated throughout the fulfillment process. You can expect an update from us by the end of the day Pacific Time on 1/6.

Does this pen ship to Canada?
I got the Pelican Aquamarine with a bottle of the same color ink .... In your opinion, what is the difference between the 2 ?  I can't remember what I paid exactly for that pen, surely it wasn't over $500.  Its great looking, and I haven't even tried out my new pen yet because I'm all strung out over my Stainless Lamy 1000 ... lol   any feedback would be greatly appreciated

My M400 White Tortoise would probably be the same way, but it needs an adjustment, which I still haven't had done. One of these days I'll clean it and send it out for and adjustment. Of the four Pelikans I own, the Aquamarine is the smoothest and springiest of them all.
I have an M805 Stresemann on the way and I'm hoping it's problem-free out of the box.
Xyverz
where did you buy the Stresemann?
I love & want this pen!
This is so sexy
If it weren't for the fact that I already have far too many pens, and I'm not ready to jump up to the $500 bracket, I'd be all over this drop. *sigh* Just can't justify it today.
EDIT: I took a look at La Couronne du Comte, and even though this pen isn't showing up there now, you can still get the M805 Stresemann for about $340 USD shipped, when you add in a 10% discount code. I'll be passing this drop up for now.
must.....not....purchase...
tskiller
I know, right? This is the most tempting one I've seen....
How would these ship? I wouldn't chance such a purchase if MD doesn't use a fully insured service with tracking and fast delivery.
silverthornne
Generally Massdrop is a good company when it comes to stuff like this but if you are still worried, I would recommend just checking out with PayPal. They are really good about getting your money back in the off chance Massdrop won't do something to replace the pen (PayPal is notoriously customer friendly).
Cubicego
My concern is that I once bought an M400 White Turtoiseshell from MD and they used that UPS service where they hand it off to the USPS and it took over a month to arrive and with absolutely no updates from the USPS once they got it from UPS. It was a nail-biting experience.
All of the orders have been shipped and are now on the way to you! Once tracking is available, you will receive a confirmation email with tracking information. Please allow 24-48 hours for this information to update in the courier’s system.
