Pelikan M800 Blue Striated – 18C 2 tone Medium ground to Fine Stub by Pen Realm’s Kirk Speer
The first Souverän models with a black and blue striped sleeve were added to the product range in 1995.
The production of the sleeve is an elaborate task, as the cotton material – its formula was developed specially for Pelikan – must go through many manufacturing steps in order to create this striped piece of material. It is bent, smoothed and its contours are diamond-cut. Next, the characteristic double rings at the back of the barrel and on the cap are integrated into the material. This is done with the highest precision in order to obtain a virtually seamless transition between the materials. The writing instrument is then polished to a high sheen before the slightly springy clip with its famous, stylized Pelikan is mounted.
All the hardware is 24k gold-plated and comes with a two-tone 18k nib
