Here are some of my Pelikans. Two M800s - a broad and an XF.

The ballpoint on the right is an EDC, in my pocket most days, and gets so much use that the brass has worn through. I would love to see everyone else's Pelikans. Anyone else care to post pictures?

PS I don't have them yet... Holiday shipping and all
