I just got the chance to open my new Pelikan M205 Star Ruby, the pink sparkly Pelikan I’ve been waiting for. So, in real life, it’s not exactly the pink sparkly Pelikan I’ve been waiting for. But it’s a handsome, translucent dark ruby red pen that I think will find a lot of fans among those who would never want a more obviously sparkly, or a pinker, pen.
It is different than I expected from online photos. Darker. The sparkles are, I’m told, very visible in sunlight. But I didn’t get to open mine until late afternoon, in the cool light of early fall.
I’ll put up some comparison photos.
