The Pelikan Souveran M405 Stresemann is a true classic and a special fountain pen. It is an homage to the foreign minister of the Weimar Republic, Gustav Stresemann who was honored with the Nobel Prize for Peace in 19126 for his reconciliatory work between the nations after World War I. 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 palladium and the beautifully striped body is made out of celluloid acetate.

The nibs of the M605 and M405 are made out of 14k carat gold.
