  • The Pelikan Souverän 805 offers a palladium-plated silver variation to the globally revered Souverän 800 range. Three available finishes include two with Pelikan's distinctive striped barrels, a blue-black design and the 'Stresemann', named after the stylish anthracite pinstripe suits of the Nobel Peace Prize winning foreign minister, Gustav Stresemann. Also available as a solid black finish of high grade resin.

    The striped material that makes up the distinctive barrels of the Souveran range is composed from a celluloid cotton base using a formula developed specially for Pelikan. The layers are slowly built up over months before being sliced and shaped using a natural diamond.

    The resin cap features characteristic double rings precisely integrated to present a seamless transition between materials. The glossy barrels are complemented to great effect by palladium-plated silver metal accents. The clip of the Pelikan represents a beak, offering yet another unique characteristic to this historic manufacturer, whose brand is one of the oldest trademarks in Germany.

    Pelikan especially pride themselves on their expertise in creating nibs, inks and feeds; their mastery over these essential components enables them to create fine-writing instruments of the highest quality.

  • The Souverän M805 fountain pen features an 18-carat rhodium-plated gold nib which is hand written-in before leaving the factory. The differential piston fill mechanism is constructed from brass and the pen features an ink view window. Available in four nib widths: EF, F, M, B.

A truly elegant, significant pen!
By Guy Devyatkin
I have had my PELIKAN SOUVERÄN M805 (blue-black with a fine nib) for about a year, and, in this time, I have only come to admire its qualities even more. These features fall into several categories: appearance, feel, mechanism, operation, and durability. The M805 is beautiful, especially with the contrast of black with palladium trim and clip, and the gorgeous deep blue strips. Even in a large hand, the 805 is robust and substantial, providing tactile feedback and control, it feels balanced when it is posted or unposted. The filling mechanism is sturdy and efficient, and the reservoir has a large capacity; however, the pin-stripe windows do not allow the ink level to be so easily determined, unless the pen is held up to a bright backlight. The pen is very reliable and has had zero rough starts, even when unused for over a month. The fine is an "all-purpose" fairly stiff nib, but it is responsive to a very light contact, allowing lengthy letter writing, as well as elegant cursive practice, with nary a scratch, drip or smear. Of course, better paper will allow it to perform at its best. After a year of use, the pen looks brand new. It is true that I keep it in on my desk or in a case and do not allow children and pets to handle it, but I think it will maintain its beauty for many years. I think the PELIKAN SOUVERÄN M805 is worth the asking price. Each time I open it (about 3/4 of a turn to remove the cap), I feel its historic pedigree. Perhaps this is only imagined, but this connection is real for me and seems to add significance to the words I write on the page.
