Pelikan Souverän M405 Fountain Pen
The Pelikan Souverän series of writing instruments is the premium collection from one of the pen world's most prestigious manufacturers. Pelikan were the first company to launch the piston-fill fountain pen in 1929, after acquiring the patents from its Hungarian inventor in 1927. The Souverän pens are a joy to write with, with their gold nibs and variety of sizes 400/600/800/1000 to suit every hand. A firm favourite of many of the Laywine's staff, with the M800 being used at the moment to write lists of all the products that need to go on the website! The striated barrel is not only beautiful, but also allows you to see how much ink remains in the barrel. Those in the know, will always recognise a Pelikan, and carrying one is a discreet way to signal to others that you're an individual of impeccable taste.
While the Black-Green colour way is the most iconic of all Pelikan colours, in our opinion the recent addition to the '05 series (silver trim) of the Stresemann (Black-Anthracite) gives the classic a run for its money in terms of beauty. A Pelikan Souverän is a must-have for any collector of fine writing instruments.
