The Pelikan Souveran has supreme composure and is born of strength of character with an indomitable spirit, yet serene self-possession. It is timelessly elegant yet compellingly simple - a classic. Precision technology is married to contemporary clarity for the peace of mind to bring ideas to light. This fine writing instrument's timeless beauty holds its high value and although refinements have been added wherever technical progress allowed it, the Pelikan Souveran 420 Pencil has largely remained like the original of the past. The sterling silver cap is elegant against the black resin barrel.
