|Pelikan Souveran M600 Fountain Pen|
Pelikan has been manufacturing fountain pens for 85 years, and their experience shows in the Souveran M600 fountain pen. I acquired the black with blue stripe model in the photo several years ago, and it quickly became one of my favorites. The medium sized body and overall balance are great, the gold plated rings are very attractive, and the brass piston filling mechanism is a real pleasure to use. Probably the best feature is the two-tone 14 carat gold nib decorated with rhodium, which writes so very smoothly, even in fine or extra fine (mine happens to be a fine, and medium or broad nibs are also available).
I've used this pen to send notes to friends as well as to address birthday and holiday cards. Quite frequently people comment on seeing that I used a fountain pen, and they really appreciate the personal gesture in this world of fast-paced digital communication. If you'd like to experience the pleasure of writing with a quality fountain pen with a solid gold nib (in my mind, there is no substitute), you can't do much better than the Pelikan Souveran M600. Choose from a model in all-black, or black with red, blue, or traditional green stripe, and try some of the very colorful Pelikan and Edelstein inks as well. You won't be disappointed.
