Pelikan Pen on Rhodia?

Your Rhodia Driver has always been fascinated with the pelican. Perhaps it was the novel, and then the film that ignited the interest. So it was such a pleasant surprise to discover a pen of the same name. The Toledo from Pelikan has been one of their signature pens for decades. Introduced in in 1986, the Toledo “was based on the classic Pelikan T111 of 1931.” The cap and barrel were as used on the Souverain M400, but the band on the barrel was a sculpted overlay depicting a mother Pelikan motif. We wonder if anyone has ever tried a Pelikan pen on a Rhodia paper? If not a Pelikan, in your estimation what’s the best pen on a Rhodia pad?

  1. I use a Pelikan m400 medium nib (Binderized) on my dotWebbie (really dramatic shading on the 5mm grid) and for taking notes on my No. 13 pad (which I’m happy to hear is coming out in a dot pad). It’s a little wet, but I love it.

  3. Oddly, my Lamy Safaris work really well on the Rhodia paper, so you can have something cheap and effective (always a nice combination when you can get it)!

  5. Use my Pelikan m805 medium nib pen on the Rhodia pad sometimes. It’s a bit too wet for it, so I’d perhaps try something finer. It works best on the Clairefontaine paper.
