View Full Discussion Nice looking pen, but it's only a 400 size--kind'a dinky for a big, manly-man like you, with those burly, lumberjack-sized paws, no?
Well don't despair, as luck would have it, MD is also offering nice Pelikan in the slightly larger 600 size, that offers a little more heft in the hand and, it's actually a few bucks less than this damn wimpy-sized pen!
Now that's the good part--the other part is that it only comes in a kind of girly-violet color. But still, it's bigger and cheaper and, you know, violet's a nice color too, right?
And don't worry--if all your other lumberjack friends try to make fun of you because you've got a somewhat less than alpha-male colored pen sticking out of your buffalo-plaid flannel shirt--well you just jack-in your your Dave Rusan, custom made, pearl-white, Cloud Guitar and look those boys straight in the eyes and say:
"Honey, I know, I know, I know, times are changing!"
then, rip through few power chords and say:
"I only wanted to see you bathing in the purple rain!"
and I guarantee, you'll have all those tuff guys waving their hands in the air and balling like babies, in no time.
PS: here's the rest of those lyrics incase you need 'em:
"I never meant to cause you any sorrowI never meant to cause you any painI only wanted to one time to see you laughingI only wanted to see youLaughing in the purple rainPurple rain, purple rainPurple rain, purple rainPurple rain, purple rainI only wanted to see youBathing in the purple rainI never wanted to be your weekend loverI only wanted to be some kind of friendBaby, I could never steal you from anotherIt's such a shame our friendship had to endPurple rain, purple rainPurple rain, purple rainPurple rain, purple rainI only wanted to see youUnderneath the purple rainHoney, I know, I knowI know times are changingIt's time we all reach outFor something new, that means you tooYou say you want a leaderBut you can't seem to make up your mindI think you better close itAnd let me guide you to the purple rain"
PS: here's the link to the other pen:
It’s the Monty Python Lumberjack’s Song that’s playing in my head, after reading your first line.
When posted, the M400 fits fine in my hands, but mine are not big paws. I was surprised that I have no problems with the M1000 either.
I have the 1000 too, but for me, and my gal Nell, the M800 is still our preferred size.
