For your consideration, we are offering for sale this Circa 2001 to 2010 Pelikan M800 Souverän Red Stripe Fountain Pen with Gold Trim. I have taken apart the piston and nib from the barrel to clean the inside of the pen, put it back together, and is now in great writing condition.
The Pelikan Souverän M800 is a solid black cap and red stripe barrel fountain pen complemented by 24k gold plated trim. The large 2-tone nib is made of 18C - 750 gold and designated a "Fine". The fountain pen is equipped with a differential brass piston-filling mechanism that works so smoothly. The smooth operating piston mechanism allows you to fill this pen with bottled ink, and the transparent red stripe barrel allows you to see your ink level.
There are absolutely no nicks, chips, cracks, or repairs to this fountain pen. The cap banding is stamped with, "PELIKAN SOUVERAN GERMANY". The cap and barrel are excellent with the cap always securing tightly to the barrel. There are no monograms or personalizations to either the cap or barrel. This Pelikan M800 was in production from 2001 to 2010. The black and gold top shows the two chick cap logo. This Pelikan M800 measures 5 5/8" inches in length capped and 6 1/2" inches posted.
The NIB is an 18C - 750 Two-Tone with a fine point. The actual fountain pen tipping measures .57mm when measured using a digital caliper. In the listing writing sample, this Pelikan M800 will write with a line variation between a fine to medium line of .53mm to .73mm when measured with digital calipers. The writing sample provided was done with the actual pen in the images listed for sale. The writing sample was used by dipping the NIB in Montblanc Blue Ink.
The Pelikan comes in a beautiful, clean white satin-lined box that does not have any ink stains. A near perfect presentation box with the Pelikan literature..
The Pelikan M800 Red Stripe with Gold Trim is a large classic, elegant pen. Its understated simplicity makes the M800 an ideal everyday writer or a pen for black-tie affairs. Again I would consider this Pelikan M800 to be in Near Mint Condition. It is ready to write with or add to your writing arsenal collection.
