Pelikan Souveran : A True Classic
In the year 1929, Pelikan introduced the differentiated piston mechanism. Pelikan was the first company in the world to do it. This technique causes the spindle inside the fountain pen to turn quicker than the end piece of the barrel with the help of two different threads. To this date, this fountain pen exists in many different variations, and though it has been refined in design and technical details over the time, the basic mechanism remains the same.
In 1950, the model 400 was launched. With its green-striped sleeve, it has become a world-wide symbol for the brand of Pelikan. In the eighties, the series was baptized Souverän, though popular lore has taken to call it by its nick-name Stresemann, because the state secretary of the Weimarer Republik was famous for his striped suits. Today, the original of Pelikan has additionally been equipped with a black suit made of high-quality resin.
The Iconc Pelikan Barrel
Adhering to a special Pelikan recipe, the raw material cotton is processed in many steps until it is shaped into a striped sheet. It is then shaped and cut into the right shape with a diamond. Next, the characteristic double clips at the back of the barrel and on the cap are integrated into the material, with the highest precision in order to obtain a virtually seamless transition between the materials. It is then polished to a high sheen, before the slightly springy clip with its famous, stylized Pelikan is mounted.
