A rumor by definition is of uncertain truth and that appears to have been the case with the early news of the M600 Vibrant Blue that had been leaked several months ago. Don’t fret too much though if you had your heart set on a Vibrant Blue release because within that rumor was obviously some truth. Rather than an M6xx, Pelikan has just announced the M805 Vibrant Blue slated for a February 2016 release. Described as, “bright blue with a complex structure like the sea,” it certainly has a pleasing appearance. The pen will have the standard Souverän trim which will be palladium plated in keeping with the x05 line. I think the palladium really goes well with the blue coloring and the picture seems to show some translucency to the material, similar to that of the M600 Vibrant Green. As is the new convention, this pen will include an all rhodium plated 18K nib devoid of any of the yellow gold accents seen on the other lines. Nib sizes will be available in the standard EF, F, M, and B.
