Pelikan Souveran K405 Stresemann Ballpoint Pen
The Souveran Stresemann series is dedicated to the foreign minister of the Weimar Republic, Gustav Stresemann (1879- 1929), honored with the Nobel Prize for Peace in 1926: Together with his French colleague Aristide Briand, he was acknowledged for his reconciliatory work between the nations after World War I. Besides his impressive political career, Stresemann also became famous for the creation of a new kind of suit that was still sufficiently formal for official presentations and yet comfortable enough for his work at the office. Stresemann liked to wear suits with thin stripes, and, as life sometimes goes, a legend developed … and suddenly, people called the striped fountain pens from Pelikan -- that were just then starting their global tour of success around the world -- by the name of 'Stresemann'.
Pelikan now offers the popular Souveran black-anthracite Stresemann in the smaller M400 size. The barrel with the deceptively simple anthracite stripes is made of cellulose acetate, using a traditional process that‘s extremely work-intensive. For the black, finely turned pieces, high-quality resin was used. The clip and the rings are plated with palladium. The nib is made of 14 carat gold and then completely rhodinized to obtain a silver sheen. Every single writing instrument is mounted by hand and carefully checked to fulfill the strictest quality criteria. This elegant series consists of a 400 piston-fill fountain pen, push-top ball pen and capped rollerball. The Pelikan 405 Stresemann series is well-suited for remarkable writing!
