Pelikano 3rd generation “school” fountain pen

pelikano_bearbeitetMost school kids in Germany learned how to use a FP with these (usually blue) Pelikanos during the sixties, seventies and eighties. I got mine probably around 1978. I found this barely used late 60s or early 70s model on a flea market recently with original box for an incredible price. Supersmooth, quite tough and extremely reliable. If these were made in black plastic today, they would sell like sliced bread, I´m sure. Today the Lamy Safari seems to be the most popular FP in schools in Germany. I can´t write with those due to their “ergonomic” sections.
