Pelikan Souverän M405 Black

The M405 series indicates rhodium-plated (white metal) trim rather than gold-plated trim. This trim on the black model fountain pen is the most formal looking of the colors.  A work-horse filling system, interchangeable nibs and robust body makes pen one that should last a lifetime.

Part of Pelikan's signature Souverän series, the M405 Black with rhodium trim fountain pen combines the contemporary and the classic.

The dark green ink window lets you know when you it's time to refill. Pelikan's reliable piston-filler system gives this compact pen a generous ink capacity.

The M405 is one of the smaller pens on the Pelikan size chart, but manifests a strong presence thanks to its sleek black cap and barrel, rhodium Pelikan clip and trim, and close attention to fit and finish.


The Pelikan Souverän series M405 Black is available from us with your choice of 14k two-tone nib. These Pelikan nib units are well-suited to customizations including Stub, Cursive Italic, or Left Oblique.  Interchangeable nib units, which can easily be swapped in and out in just a few seconds, add to the versatility of this pen. Some people like to have multiple nibs in order to express a variety of writing styles. 

Unless requested otherwise, each pen or nib you purchase from us will be carefully examined, tested, and optimized for your personal writing characteristics before it ships.
