Video-Review: Pelikan M405 Silver-White

After the recent video review of a late 2020 Pelikan release, the M600 Tortoiseshell-Red, here comes another such review of a 4th quarter release: the Pelikan M405 Silver-White.

Last year 2020, much of Pelikan’s releases have been delayed and/or shifted towards the end of the year, as Covid has been challenging the world in many ways.

Before we hop into the review, I would like to take the opportunity to thank Pelikan for supporting this video review.

    That is very interesting. Thank you.
    Would you say, that the nib is different from the nibs we are used to from Pelikan?
    Normally (in the newer models) they build the tip like a ball as they explained to me, so that everyone can easily write with them.

      The stub like characteristic is not extreme. And I can also not tell whether this is my copy of the pen, or all of them, as I normally do no use broad nibs.
