Souverän M605 Green/White Special Edition Fountain pen by Pelikan – a dazzling fountain pen for fantastic writing
The M400 was first produced in 1950. In the 1980s, Pelikan named it Souverän, even though the Germans already called it “Stresemann”, after the Weimar Republic’s Secretary of State, who was known for his striped suits. The success of this model led to the decision to make it available in different sizes, of which the M600 is the larger version and the M605, the version with palladium trims.
It takes a lot of design work to achieve such a contrast in colour and brilliance. The central part of the body, made of cellulose acetate, is produced using an in-house manufacturing technique whose secret is still jealously guarded. Many manufacturing steps are required to obtain a thin striped sheet which is then carefully checked before being transformed into a cylinder into which the resin body as well as the rest of the device are slid.
The top of the body and the top of the grip are made of high quality turned resin. Its typical double ring at the end of the body and at the base of the cap, as well as the ring at the grip, are then integrated into the object with precision in order to obtain a perfect fit between the different parts. The final step is the careful polishing of the fountain pen to give it its full lustre.
The various rings, the top of the cap and the clip are palladium-plated. Other elegant details include the finial with the famous bird at the top of the cap and the magnificent clip in the shape of a pelican’s beak. The fountain pen is filled by an integrated piston. An example of Pelikan’s fabulous workmanship: each fountain pen is assembled by hand.
The magnificent nib with the brand logo is made of 14-carat gold with rhodium plating. It is available in four sizes: EF, F, M and B.
