The model 1000 is the oversize version of Souverän.
The green striped model completes the range of sizes (400, 600, 800) for one of the most wellknown models in fountain pen's history.
The Souverän has been even made all black, in precious and polished resin, like cap and bottoms; with a transparent window for ink inspection.
All the Souverän 1000 feature the differentiated piston filling mechanism. Introduced by Pelikan in 1929, it causes the spindle inside the fountain pen to turn quicker than the end piece of the barrel, with the help of two different threads.
The giant 18 Kt gold nib, bicolor, refined with rhodium decor, is tested by hand.
If you love classics, you must own a Souverän writing instrument.
All Souverän fountain pens come in a beautiful round box, which includes also a complimentary ink bottle and a nice pencase.
