Pelikan was founded in Hanover, Germany in 1832 by chemist Carl Hornemann. Their “true” history did not begin until the “100” model and the modified “100N” (both fountain pens), which sparked the genesis of the company’s distinctive styling. Today, Pelikan's modern-day flagship line is known as the "Pelikan Souverän", consisting of the M300, M400, M600, M800 and the M1000. These pens are notable for their easily replaceable nibs that are somewhat interchangeable between most pen models. Pelikan is also notable for manufacturing many of its pens using cellulose acetate, instead of the more modern plastics used by most other major pen makers. Due to their diligent, unwavering dedication to creating the perfect pen, Pelikan’s collections have continually set the standard for innovation and design. Yet despite all these wondrous feats, Pelikan is most famous for its invention of the differential-piston filling method. Pelikan is a brand that always seeks new challenges. All of their time and dedication goes into ensuring that they offer their customers products that inspire creativity and imagination. They do their utmost to create and promote merchandise that doesn’t just service their customers but motivates them as well. Considered a true friend of fountain pen enthusiasts, Pelikan fountain pens are a “must-have” for any true pen connoisseur’s collection. Pen Boutique is an AUTHORIZED DEALER of Pelikan pens.
