Video-Review: Pelikan M101N “Bright Red” (Special Edition)

Pelikan is famous for never failing to surprise the fountain pen community with fantastic limited or special edition pens. The M101N “Bright Red” is the latest – and again probably rather successful – attempt on that. Building on an iconic 1930s design that is steeped in pen-history, the “Bright Red” continues the re-make of a vintage classic that Pelikan had already started a couple of years ago with the M101N Lizard, Tortoiseshell-Red, and Tortoishell-Brown.

So let’s see what the latest release of a modern incarnation of this vintage classic can do. As with many of Pelikans limited or special editions, I expect the stock to sell off rather quickly – and later on go for preloved-pen-prices of about an arm and a leg. This particular pen already doesn’t come as an impulse buy, as it weighs in at around 450 €, speaking most likely rather to a connoisseur kind of few.

Now on to the video-review below, which is, as always, preceded by some quick facts. Again, I hope the review is helpful and that you enjoy watching it!
