The model 800 is the large size of Souverän.
The green striped model is the same in all sizes (400, 600, 800, 1000) for one of the most wellknown models in fountain pen's history.
The Souverän was produced in red stripes, with the same process, as well as in blue stripes.
And, in Special Edition, for a limited period of time, also in Turtle version:
All the Souverän 800 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 18 Kt gold nib, bicolor, refined with rhodium decor, is tested by hand.
La Souverän 600 is available also in capped roller version, still black cap and striped body, for all the3 colors.
All Souverän fountain pens come in a beautiful round box, which includes also a complimentary ink bottle and a nice pencase. The Turtle version, however, comes in the normal box.
The rollerballs come in a rectangular elegant box, with a complimentary pencase.
