Once upon a time, in a country far far away from where it was made, a blue Pelikan M205 Traditional Series demonstrator came to roost on a Yeah! notebook.
The blue Peli’s fine steel nib has a bit of flex that makes it a joy to write with, yielding good line variation because of its springiness.
It was joined later by a limited edition Pelikan M205 in Gelb (yellow) from Germany.
Its nib is even bouncier than its blue fellow’s.
The clips of both pens are pelican beaks with eyes, the better to see what they are writing.
The ink window mesmerizes; one can gaze at that ink bubble and derive amusement from watching the ink flow here and there as you tilt the barrel.
An ink window is handy for seeing how much ink you have left. You’ll never run dry in the middle of a sentence anymore.
The Yeah! notebook is inexpensive but well-made.
Its paper is smooth and takes fountain pen ink well with little show-through and no feathering.
Interesting pens, notebooks, and inks for doodling make me happy. What are the little things that bring you happiness?
