Essential info
  • Fine nib width
  • Distinctive Tortoiseshell striped celluloid barrel with white resin and gold accents
  • Engraved bi-colour 14-carat gold nib - written in by hand
  • Differential piston fill mechanism constructed from brass
  • Holds a large volume of ink
  • Ink view window
  • Celluloid body with 24-carat gold plated trim
  • Characteristic Pelikan 'beak' clip
  • Second smallest model in the Souverän range
  • The 400 and 405 designs are a diminutive 12.7cm in length, making them the second smallest in the Souverän range, perfect for writers who prefer the feel of a smaller pen. The 400 features the classic 24-carat gold accents.

    Pelikan's distinctive striped barrels are available in red, black, green and tortoiseshell-white, with the 400 range also offering 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 with 24-carat gold. The clip of the Pelikan represents a beak, another characteristic unique to this historic manufacturer; 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 M400 fountain pen features a bi-coloured 14-carat rhodium-plated gold nib hand written-in before leaving the factory. The pen features an ink view window and uses a differential piston fill mechanism. Available in four nib widths: EF, F, M, B.

Great pen & fantastic service!
By Hao
Pelikan M400 is a great pen. The size with cap seems small, but the size without cap is actually almost the same with M600, which is just the right size in hand. Love it very much! The Pen Company is an amazing fountain pen seller. My original selection was affected because of Pelikan's delay due to Covid-19. After communication, James explained the details and I ended up with choosing an different nib size. They check the pens and nibs delivered by pen manufactures, and also check the pens before sending them out. Such old-day routine is cherishable nowadays. All in all, I'm impressed with their service from this purchase, which is my first consumption in The Pen Company.
