Pelikan M120 Green Black Fountain Pen
The Pelikan M120 Green Black Fountain Pen is a special edition and a tribute to the vintage version from the 1950s. Like its predecessor, the pen is cigar shaped with a black cap and piston knob, green barrel, and Pelikan-beak clip.
The first Pelikan model M120 was launched in 1955. For the re-launch, we have kept the traditional shape and the original material of the nib: stainless steel, gold plated. However, for comfort, these elements were combined with proven Pelikan piston fountain pen technology. For a special something, we have added an engraving on the nib that re-interprets a curlicue which we found in a Pelikan price-list of 1889.
The material of the barrel and cap for this fountain pen is high-quality resin, and the clips and rings are gold plated.
About Pelikan Pen
Pelikan is a global brand and was founded in Hanover in 1832. It is a German but Swiss-incorporated manufacturer of premium fountain pens and other writing, office and art equipments. Pelikan is also credited with the invention of the differential-piston filling method.
Pelikan “true” history began with the model “100” and the modified 100N (both fountain pens), which sparked the genesis of the company’s distinctive styling.
The modern-day range includes a popular Souverän (meaning Sovereign) line which consists of the very small M300, small M400, medium M600, large M800 and oversized M1000. A new range of large, modern pens have recently been released called ‘Toledo’, are manufactured in two sizes in Toledo in Spain. The M700 Toledo is the same size as the (new-style) M400 and the M900 is the same size as the M800.
Pelikan is also credited for making Pelikan Special Edition Pens and Pelikan Limited Edition Pens since 1993. The first was the Blue Ocean, a transparent ‘demonstrator’ version of the M800 fountain pen.
The tradition of producing several Limited Editions showing German craftsmanship was also complemented by Pelikan Special Editions which are not produced in limited number, but for a limited time.
