Really smooth nib - glides on premium and not so premium paper. This is my second Pelikan (the other being the M1000). The Engraving on the clear model is very nice - Looks really sharp! As always, handled transaction perfectly, and shipped quickly. Highly recommended.

 These special edition fountain pens are being made available for a limited time only.

The demonstrator fountain pen has a long history. It was first employed at sales counters in order to explain the inner workings and mysteries of pen technology to the lay customer.  These vintage pens have become extremely collectible and occupy a prized place in pen museums. 

Pelikan's superb engineering is on full display here. This filling system, which allows the pen to use any bottled fountain pen ink, has been an industry standard since the 1930's.


Each part of the pen is identified by the engraving directly over it.

The classic Pelikan "one chick" logo adorns the flat end cap of the M805 Demonstrator, while a palladium-plated clip allows the pen to be easily affixed to a notepad or pen pocket.

Pelikan 18k solid gold nib units are well-suited to customizations including Stub, Cursive Italic, or Left Oblique and can be swapped at home.  This provides for multiple nib choices with the same pen. 

The pen ships in the presentation box seen at left and includes all papers. With its clear window, the box matches the demonstrator style of the fountain pen.

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.
