In the year 1929 Pelikan was the first company in the world to introduce the differentiated piston mechanism. This technique causes the spindle inside the fountain pen to turn quicker than the end piece of the barrel, with the help of two different threads. To this date, this fountain pen exists in many different variations, and though it has been developed in design and technical details over time, the basic mechanism remains the same.

In 1950, the model 400 was launched. With its green-striped sleeve, it has become a world-wide symbol for the brand of Pelikan. In the eighties, the series was baptized Souverän, though popular lore has taken to calling it by its nick-name Stresemann, because the state secretary of the “Weimarer Republik” was famous for his striped suits…

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.

The M600 is available in the colours Black,Black/Green, Black/Blue and Black/Red.

The M600 has  a hand-crafted, finely engraved 14 carat gold nib with rhodium decoration · Gold-plated Pelikan clip.

5 reviews for Pelikan Souverän M605 Black/Anthracite Stresemann Fountain pen

  1. English


    Ik was al bekend met de M200/400 en de M800-series van Pelikan. Tijdens de Pelikan Hub mocht ik een M600 proberen van iemand en toen wist ik zeker dat ik die ook aan mijn verzameling wilde toevoegen. Een week later bood Appelboom de pen met een mooie korting aan in verband met Black Friday en sloeg ik mijn slag.

    Deze Stresemann is werkelijk perfect. Prachtig in al zijn eenvoud met een semi-doorzichtige barrel. De palladium afgewerkte details zijn perfect op elkaar afgestemd. De rhodium nib maakt het helemaal af.

    Uiteraard schrijft deze pen zoals een Pelikan hoort te schrijven. Smooth met een kleine feedback. Ik houd ervan.

    Souveran M605 stresemann writes well with decent flow of ink in Fine nib. Having small size hands, M605 feels good fit for my writing. I have bought a few pens including Souveran M805 from Appelboom Pennen. It has been always good experience with Appelboom with fast delivery.

    My favorit size in the Pelikan Souverän series is the M805, as I always have on my desk when I work.
    To bring with me, when I am at meetings or to have in my jacket pocket etc, I needed a just little bit smaller pen. This one is perfekt for that purpose.
    I have now bought some pens from Appelboom, and also used them for service etc for my older pens, and I am always very satisfied after my contact with this comapny and by Joost. Fast deliveries and very professional in every thing they do.
    I highly recommend them.

    This is a terrific pen. I have several Pelikan pens in various price ranges. The M605 Stresemann lives up to the Pelikan standard. Handsome design, well made, and writes beautifully. And Appelboom’s price was very good.
