SOUVERAN 1000 SERIES
Pelikan Limited Edition Souveran M1000 Raden White Ray Fountain Pen
Pelikan is pleased and proud to offer this new M1000 Raden White Ray Limited Edition as the beautiful successor to the M1000 Raden Green Ray. The new Raden White Ray combines the beautiful Japanese decorative craftsmanship with Pelikan's famous Souverän® fountain pen, making these pens a symbiosis of two cultures.
Raden is a traditional Japanese decorative craft mainly used for lacquer ware and woodwork. Working with thin strips of mother-of-pearl, the master artist creates a unique and distinctive striped fountain pen which is impressive and a piece of art. Each individually produced pen is crafted by hand and truly unique.
The first step to create the M1000 Raden White Ray fountain pen is to use the special Japanese Urushi lacquer to give the surface of the pen a deep black impression. Then the traditional stripes are made with particles from white mother of pearl material. In the next step the stripes are fixed to the cap and barrel by a coating of lacquer.
Finally, the artist individually signs and numbers each fountain pen with Maki-e technique.
The Raden M1000 White Ray fountain pens are fitted with an 18kt gold nibs in the size medium, all accentuated with a rhodium décor. Each fountain pen is presented in a traditional Japanese gift box which is made of Paulownia wood.
The Limited Edition Raden M1000 White Ray is limited to an edition of 400 pieces worldwide. Each pen is individually numbered and signed by the Maki-e artist.
The smooth operating piston mechanism allows you to fill this pen with bottled ink. An ink window allows you to see your ink level.
