Pelikan Souverän M1000 Raden Green Rey Fountain Pen - (Limited Edition 2020)
The M1000 line hasn’t seen a pen in this style since 2016’s Raden Sunrise. To make a pen with this traditional Japanese technique, a special Japanese Urushi lacquer is first applied to the barrel and cap. The stripes are then constructed with particles of Australian abalone. For the Green Ray, these colorful pieces of pearlescent shell appear to reflect hues of green, blue, and purple. Finally, another layer of lacquer is applied to seal everything in place. The artist then hand numbers and signs each piece in the Maki-e technique.
The Raden Green Ray will feature the typical 24 carat gold plated furniture of every M1000 Souverän. That includes two trim rings at the piston knob and a single trim ring at the section. The cap incorporates two cap bands, a beak clip, and a cap top featuring Pelikan’s single chick logo plated in gold. The piston knob and section are made of black resin and there is a dark green ink view window just behind the section threads. Every Green Ray will come equipped with a two-tone 18C-750 gold nib in a medium width though any M1xxx nib will fit this model. Like all of the Maki-e and Raden releases, this one will come in a traditional Japanese gift box made of Paulownia wood.
Comes Standard with a Medium Nib- Should you want a different nib size we can exchange it to an F or B. Extra Fine will be an additional $100.
