The Pelikan Souveran M1000 is a true classic. The Souveran is the flagship fountain pen of Pelikan and it has been in production for more than 50 years. The piston filling mechanism introduced in 1929 was revolutionary at the time. The accessories are plated with 24k carat gold and the beautifully striped body is made out of celluloid acetate.
The nibs of the M1000 and M800 are made out of 18k carat gold.
The nibs of the M600, M400 and M300 are made out of 14k carat gold.

Souverän® M1005 Stresemann
Besides his impressive political career, the foreign minister of the German Weimarer Republic, Gustav Stresemann (1879-1929), also became famous for the creation of a new kind of suit. The classical Stresemann suit consists of black/grey striped trousers and a single row jacket in black or anthracite. The Souverän® of Pelikan is popularly known as „Stresemann“, that is why Pelikan named the Souverän® black-anthracite after Gustav Stresemann.
After a successful market introduction of Souverän® series 405 and 805 Stresemann, Pelikan follows this success by launching the most exclusive model of the Souverän® line, the M1005 Stresemann. The elegant piston fountain pen is equipped with a 18 carat gold nib which is completely covered by rhodium to obtain a silver sheen. The barrel with the deceptively simple anthracite stripes is made of cellulose acetate, using a traditional process that is extremely work-intensive but gives this series its elegant character.
The Souverän® M1005 Stresemann is delivered inside an attractive gift box (G15). As a matching color contrast we are recommending the beautiful Edelstein® Ink Flacon with Mandarin ink.
