If you’re looking for the classic writing instrument par excellence, stop right here. The fountain pen Classic black has a timeless design with its barrel and cap in polished black. It is made of high-quality resin. The 24 carat gold-plated decorative rings and the characteristic Pelikan beak clip underline its traditional design, with a transparent-green ink viewing window as a classy and colorful accent.
The Classic black is equipped with a traditional and reliable piston-filling mechanism. Different nib-sizes are available when it comes to the polished high-quality stainless steel nib. The model in the size 150 is the smallest available pen in the Classic series (only the 300 Souverän is smaller), therefore it is ideal for a small hand. This fountain pen is also available with silver fittings (M205) and with a cartridge filling mechanism: P200 for the gold version and P205 for the silver model. The M is short for mechanism (as in piston mechanism) and the P is short for Patrone (the German word for cartridge).
A classic shape with a practical filling mechanism.
Time and again, we were asked why Pelikan doesn’t offer its Classic piston fountain pens M200 and M205 with a cartridge mechanism – for those who travel a lot and for those who prefer the quick exchange of a cartridge to the more elaborate filling with a piston mechanism. At first, we hesitated. After all, Pelikan is the epitome for classical fountain pens with the famous piston mechanism. But when the demand came more and more often, we decided to act on it. Now, we readily admit that the simple beauty of the P200 took our breath away.
We are happy to offer two very popular versions made of high quality resin in black – either with gold or with silver applications. For more information on the silver model, check out the information about the P205. The gold model P200 has a stainless steel nib that is 24 carat gold plated and available in four sizes: EF, F, M, and B. To exchange the cartridge, the fountain pen can be screwed open right at the ring. This is also the part that has to be exchanged in case of a nib change.
As a perfect combination, combine this sleek fountain pen with the new Edelstein Ink Cartridges in their attractive metal boxes – they are first-class eye-catchers! Happy writing . . .
