Video-Review: Pelikan M101N “Grey-Blue” (Special Edition)

With the recently released M101N Grey-Blue, Pelikan continues building on an iconic 1930s design vintage classic that is steeped in pen-history.

After the M101N Bright Red (that I have reviewed here), the M101N Lizard, Tortoiseshell-Red, and Tortoishell-Brown, the M101N Grey-Blue is the fifth variation in this historical’ish series.

The barrel of the “Grey-Blue” is a pearlescent and muted pattern in grey and blue, made from a cellulose acetate. The pen is then adorned with palladium-plating and a rhodinized 14 carat gold nib with a vintage decor.

As with many of Pelikans limited or special editions, I expect the stock to sell off rather quickly – and later on go for quite high second hand prices. This particular pen already doesn’t come as an impulse buy, as it weighs in at around 500 €, speaking most likely rather to a connoisseur kind of few.

Before we hop into the review, I would like to take the opportunity to thank Appelboom for supporting the review of this pen. You can also buy the Pelikan M101N Grey-Blue from their webshop (no affiliate-link).

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!
