Hey everyone, Rachel here! Just wanted to give you a sneak peek at the upcoming Pelikan Souverän M805 special edition fountain pen in Vibrant Blue, releasing in the US later this month.
The material is a gorgeous, vibrant blue acrylic resin. If it’s anything like my M600 Vibrant Green (one of my favorite pens, adore the broad nib!), it’ll probably have a hint of translucence so you can see your ink level when holding it up to the light which is really helpful with piston-fillers like this one!
The M805 is well-suited for medium to large hands. I have smaller hands and prefer the M600 myself, but the M805 isn’t too bad for me to hold. Brian loves the M800 series (and no doubt he’s got his eye on this blue one!). It weighs just over an ounce (29g), is about 5.6in (142mm) long when unposted and 6.5in (166mm) long when posted. The grip diameter is 11mm.
The rings and the clip are palladium plated, and the 18 carat gold nib is completely covered in rhodium to match the silver look. It will be available in sizes Extra-Fine, Fine, Medium, and Broad. Rollerball and ballpoint versions will also be available.
The list price is $875 for the fountain pen, though we’ll offer it 20% off at $697.
