Pelikan 400 Family of Pens - Fountain, Rollerball and Ballpoint
In 1929 Pelikan was the first company to introduce the differentiated piston mechanism. This technique causes the spindle inside the fountain pen to turn more quickly than the end piece of the barrel. Although there have been many variations over the years, the tried-and-true mechanism remains a foundation for Pelikan.
In the 400 Souveran series, gold accents are used; in the 405 Souveran, the silver accents replace gold. The barrel is a high-grade resin with a transparent window.
"The production of the sleeve is work-intensive. Adhering to a special Pelikan recipe, the raw material cotton is processed through many different steps until it is shaped into a striped sheet. It is then formed into the right shape, cut and sanded with a diamond. Next, the characteristic double clips at the back of the barrel and on the cap are integrated into the material. This is done with the highest precision in order to obtain a virtually seamless transition between the materials. The writing instrument is then polished to a high sheen before the slightly springy clip with its famous, stylized Pelikan is mounted."
