The cap of this fountain pen displays theRhodium clip and cap band. The cap is stamped with, "PELIKAN SOUVERAN GERMANY". The cap and barrel are excellent with the cap always securing tightly. There are no monograms or personalizations to either the cap or barrel. This Pelikan M805 was manufactured in Germany before 2003 as it has the two chick cap logo on top of the cap. This Pelikan M805 is a large pen and measures 5 5/8" inches in length capped and 6 5/8" inches posted.

The NIB is an 18C - 750 Two-Tone with a medium point. The actual fountain pen tipping measures .71mm when measured using a digital caliper. In the listing writing sample, this Pelikan M805 will write with a "buttery" smooth medium line of .78mm under normal writing pressure when measured with digital calipers. The writing sample provided was done with the actual pen in the images that are listed for sale. The writing sample was used by dipping the NIB in Parker Quink Blue Ink.
The Pelikan M805 Black with Rhodium Trim is a classic, elegant pen. With its black resin body and contrasting silver trim, this fountain pen evokes images of a sharp, crisp tuxedo. Its understated simplicity makes the M805 an ideal everyday writer or a pen for black-tie affairs, as well. Again, this pen, I would consider it to be in Near Mint Condition. It is ready to write with or add to your writing arsenal collection.
