This pen had a rough ride from the Netherlands to me. It took nearly a month! The plastic case the pen was shipped in was cracked in several places, but the pen itself was unscarred.
There was some condensation inside the barrel, so I took the nib off and it dried out over night. Then I was finally able to ink up and write with it. Nice writing experience. My complaint is the pen is too light, I prefer something more substantial. This Pelikan is lighter even than a Lamy Safari, and very small.
