Pre-Owned Pelikan 30 Rolled Gold Black

This classic and sleekly designed Pelikan model 30 fountain pen, circa 1970, comes with a rolled gold cap, which is heavier and more durable than gold plate. The friction-fit to the body is tight; it is a bit difficult to close all the way so that the cap sits flush with the barrel, but nevertheless this is not a pen that will uncap itself in your pocket. When in use, the pen shows off a striking cobalt blue ink window that sits just above the writer's hand.

The nib, like its pen, is sleek and minimalistic. It writes with a firm and pleasant toothiness, reminiscent of a hard-leaded pencil, which makes it a precise and easily controlled writer — ideal for anyone who appreciates that quality, and especially for people who prefer printing over cursive.

This fountain pen accepts Pelikan or any international cartridges. We provide one complementary box for your convenience. A quality writing instrument at an affordable price, this pre-owned fountain pen is in Excellent conditon.
