Pelikan Souveran 805 Vibrant Blue Fountain Pen
This pen is on consignment but is in like new condition. It comes complete with box and papers. It is equipped with an 18k Fine nib.
The vibrant blue acrylic material which was used for this new series had to undergo several production steps until it looked as varied and interesting as it is. The rings and the clip are palladium plated, and the 18 carat gold nib is completely covered by rhodium in order to obtain the silver sheen. An iridium grain at the tip of the nib determines how thick the ink stroke will be.
In the year 1929 Pelikan was the first company in the world to introduce the differentiated piston mechanism. This technique causes the spindle inside the fountain pen to turn quicker than the end piece of the barrel, with the help of two different threads. To this date, this fountain pen exists in many different variations, and though it has been developed in design and technical details over time, the basic mechanism remains the same.
