The model 1000 is the oversize version of Souverän.
Large size, large nib, it's a pen suitable for man's hands.
The green striped model completes the range of sizes (400, 600, 800) for one of the most wellknown models in fountain pen's history.
Barrel made in cellulose acetate, with the same Pelikan recipe of '50s; the raw material cotton is processed through many different steps until it is shaped into a striped sheet, then formed into the right shape, cut and sanded with a diamond.
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.
Rings and clip are 24 kt gold plated; the clip is slightly springy and shows its famous, stylized pelican's beak shape.
If you love classics, you must own a Souverän writing instrument.
All Souverän fountain pens come in a rectangular elegant box, with a complimentary pencase.
