Pelikan remade the beloved Souverän Tortoiseshell-Brown in the 400 size, as a Special Edition, therefore produced only for a limited time.
Also in this pen, Pelikan succeeded to give amazing glares, due to the thin shaded/pearly strips of orange/brown acetate of cellulose that cut the barrel lengthwise.
Cap and ends are made with high quality deep brown resin.
The Clip is 24 kt gold plated, slightly springy and shows its famous, stylized pelican's beak shape.
Also the Souverän 400 features 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 14 Kt gold nib, bicolor, refined with rhodium decor, is tested by hand.
All fountain pens come in a beatuful squared box, which includes also a complimentary ink bottle (brilliant Brown, 62 ml) and a nice pencase.
The rollers come in their classic rectangular box.
