Pelikan Special Edition souveran m 400 tortoise White Gold Fountain pen315,00€
In the year 1929 Pelikan was the first company in the world to introduce the mechanism of differential piston. This technique makes the shaft located inside the pen turn faster than the tip or sleeve of filled, thanks to two differential threads. Until today, this pen is available in many different versions, and although with the passage of time has been improved its design and technical details, the basic mechanism remains the same.
The model 400 was launched in 1950. With its Green striped body, it has become the worldwide symbol of the Pelikan brand. During the 1980s, the series was named Souverän, though popularly also called him “Stresemann” because it reminded the Secretary of State of the “Weimar Republic”, famous for its clothing striped…
The Souverän Pen shell of tortuga-blanco was manufactured in 2004, following the boom of the 1950s model lines, with a container of ink on Brown/transparent tortoise shell. Its transparent, striped vitola, possesses the delicate luster of gold. The CAP and the rest of the body parts are still white and give this model its pleasant and typically bright splendour.
The manufacture of the model is a painstaking task, since the material of cotton – its formula was specially developed for Pelikan – must undergo many manufacturing processes to create this piece of material with stripes. It bends and smooth, their contours are cut with diamond. Then the characteristic double rings that are in the back of the body and the lid are integrated into the material. This is done with the utmost precision to obtain a practically perfect transition between the materials. The instrument is then polished to a gloss before attaching the clip with a light spring and the famous form of stylised Pelikan.
PELIKAN Souverän® Stresemann M405 fountain pen295,00€
The foreign minister of the Weimar Republic, Gustav Stresemann (1879- 1929), was honored with the Nobel Prize for Peace in 1926: Together with his French colleague Aristide Briand, he was acknowleged for his reconciliatory work between the nations after World War I. Besides his impressive political career, Stresemann also became famous for the creation of a new kind of suit that was still sufficiently formal for official presentations and yet comfortable enough for his work at the office. Stresemann liked to wear suits with thin stripes, and, as life sometimes goes, a legend developed … and suddenly, people called the striped fountain pens from Pelikan — that were just then starting their global tour of success around the world — by the name of „Stresemann“.
Both the suits and the pens still carry that name to this day. To officially acknowledge and honor this legend, Pelikan has now named the latest addition to the standard collection, the Souverän with elegant stripes in anthracite, the „Stresemann“.
The barrel with the deceptively simple anthracite stripes is made of cellulose acetate, using a traditional process that‘s extremely work-intensive. For the black, finely turned pieces, high-quality resin was used. The clip and the rings are plated with palladium. The gold nib is completely rhodinized to obtain a silver sheen. Every single writing instrument is mounted by hand and carefully checked to fulfill the strictest quality criteria. This elegant series is available in the sizes 405 and 805 as fountain pen, ballpoint pen or rollerball.
