Product Description

Pelikan Limited Edition Herzstück 1929 Fountain Pen - M Nib
Get ready to be transported back to the Berlin, Paris, and New York of the 1920's with the Pelikan Limited Edition Herzstuck 1929. These cities were hubs of innovation in the 1920's. Count von Zeppelin’s airship circled the globe, streets were filled with cars, ships are sailing constantly across oceans and railways are connecting faraway lands. Innovations in technology and travel inspired the journey that writing instruments would take in 1929, under Pelikan. 

In a shimmering climate of awakening, the engineer Theodor Kovács develops a ground-breaking fountain pen with a differential piston mechanism that resolves the disadvantages of the writing implements that existed at the time. Pelikan’s owner Fritz Beindorff recognizes the significance of the invention, and purchases the patent in 1927.  Patent registration follows in Germany in 1928, and just one year later the first Pelikan fountain pen with patented piston mechanism goes into series production.

The small turn with the revolutionary impact: The innovative technology with two differing thread leads inside the fountain pen ensures that the shaft turns faster than the grip of the pen. The writing implement can hold a high volume of ink, can be filled more easily and produces no ink blots. The advantages over tube fountain-pens that dominated the market previously make it easier for travelers to use the pen.

This modern yet iconic limited edition interprets the historic form in a new guise. The large viewing window permits new insights. With much love of detail, the “Herzstück* 1929” pays tribute to the original from the 1920s: The transparent window, the curved Pelikan beak-like clip, the cap with the historic Pelikan logo, and the form and detail of the grip are reminiscent of the revolutionary Pelikan fountain pen.

The word Herzstuck means core, centerpiece or most important part. The highlight of the Commemorative fountain pen is the large viewing window that spans the length of the barrel. It’s a fascinating design that not only offers a view of the level of ink – as was the case initially with the historic Pelikan fountain pen – but also of the piston itself. Thus, as the ink is drawn into the pen, it’s possible to see the way the piston mechanism works. The piston is gold-plated and marked with the historic patent number.
Bottle fill only.

"Glad to be able to pre-order this pen rather than having to remember to find it when it is released in October." - Verified Buyer, Aug '19
