M1005 nib I am more used to! Then again, it is a smaller pen.

The nib unit can be removed for easier cleaning of the inside of the barrel. Also, the piston functioned smoothly upon arrival and did not require maintenance prior to use (as has been the case with some other piston-fillers I've had).
If you don't own any Pelikans, the Souverän M600 is a great middle of the series model to try out. It's not too big (like the M1000) and it's not too small (like the M2XX or M3XX series). It's a decent size, it's very comfortable and not heavy, it's very pretty, and the nib is a pleasure to use. Love love love. And The Pen Company is a pleasure to deal with: fast shipping, great customer service, and if you're in Europe, they have a big selection of pens you can avoid extra charges on! Highly recommended.
