Pen of the Day: Pelikan M600 Green o’ Green with J. Herbin Emerald of Chivor

Pelikan M600 Green o’ Green with broad nib. A good friend sent me a sample of the new J. Herbin Emerald of Chivor, so I brought out my big gun, nib-wise. A Pelikan broad. That’s as big as things generally get for me. I’m more of an extra-fine person.

The pen is beautiful. But I’ll save that for another day, because the ink is new, and we have all been eagerly anticipating it. It’s a “wow” ink, it really is. A teal green, with gold flakes, that shades beautifully and sheens on the right paper.

On a Rhodia dot pad, the shading is gorgeous, and the gold flakes really stand out.

Tomoe River paper really brings out the phenomenal sheen.

In this photo, you can see that the period sheens so much it looks entirely red. That’s not a trick of angle or lighting, either; it looks like that in real life, in normal light and with the page entirely flat.

  1. This pen is just made for this ink – dark green with a wee bit of gold! If you didn’t already have it, you could buy it specially for this one 🙂
