Fine Writing Newsletter 03/2018


The year 2018 is a very special year for Pelikan. 180 years ago our company was founded. The Pelikan anniversary year is guided by a unique guiding idea: Passion worldwide!

We owe this guiding idea not only to our founder Carl Hornemann who laid the foundation, but also to his successors Günther Wagner and Fritz Beindorff. They established our company in the international markets with a lot of courage and inventive talent. This is a big success which we pursue with a lot of responsibility. For Pelikan, passion is an attitude!

Classic M120 Iconic Blue

The series 120 was well known in a black-green appearance, launched in 2016.

Now it is back in an iconic blue shade. It shows a well balanced mixture of traditional design outline and dark blue as a perfect suiting color. The stunning light blue ink window puts a highlight. In that way the tradition is smoothly boosted by contemporary appearance.

The series M120 will be available as fountain pen only. For true pen lovers and as a perfect gift, we also offer this fountain pen in a special gift box with historical design. The decoration element clip is a lovely interpretation of the typical Pelikan beak shape. The gold plated stainless steel nib has a special nib engraving, created only for this series.

For different needs in writing, the nib is offered in nib sizes EF, F, M and B.
