Back in early 2016, Pelikan re-issued the green-black Pelikan M120 Fountain Pen shown here. Both of these models, the green black and the iconic blue draw their design from the tried and pure lineage of the original 120 that was made from 1955-1965. While many similarities exist between old and new, these modern versions certainly stand out on their own and make for excellent and dependable writers that are true to their school pen roots. With the added appeal of Pelikan’s modern piston-filler fountain pen technology, a green ink reservoir window, and a large M400 size, this fountain pen is very desirable.

This Pelikan M120 pen also breaks new ground as the original only came in Green-Black. The barrel of this new model sports a deep shade of blue with a matching transparent ink window. The section, piston knob, and cap match the barrel resulting in a monotone appearance that is nonetheless, striking.
The trims come with a gold-plated finish and with a single cap band and the traditional pelican’s beak clip. The nib comes gold-plated over stainless steel. Nib widths standard sizes are EF, F, M, and B. The nib of the pen features the same engraving that adorned the prior release. The engraving mimics a flourishing graphic taken from a historic Günther Wagner price list. Pelikan created one more pen, finely crafted in more than 300 individual steps. Clearly another testimony to the dedication, precision, and perfection. Like many of their creations, this one too has an inspired design.
The re-issued M120 fountain pen is an excellent writer. The green/black pen looks great with the classic shape backed by Pelikan dependability. Pelikan made limited quantities of this fountain pen so If interested, it may be best to jump on this nice Iconic Blue fountain pen early.
