The original pen came to me a damaged cap and barrel and bent clip with no nib. The clip and Fine nib are both new.
I have turned away the original black barrel sleeve and have recovered it in a material called M3. It is a metal composite. The same treatment has been given to the cap and turn knob. It is now in my opinion a gorgeous looking pen with a little extra weight over a standard M1000. 38g complete, without cap 26g.
DON'T FORGET THIS IS BASED ON A WELL USED PEN THAT HAS BEEN COMPLETELY MODIFIED BY ME. THERE WILL BE NO SUPPORT FROM PELIKAN!
