"With the "Pyramids of Giza fountain pen, Pelikan pays tribute to a historic masterwork which remains unique in its dimensions. Between 2950 and 2470 B. Monuments were created, in the form of the tombs of the Egyptian pharaohs Cheops, Chepren and Mycerinus, which have survived throughout the aeons to the present day. These burial places of the pharaohs and kings are the source of inspiration for a work of art which will delight lovers of writing as much as fans of ancient Egypt with its masterly working of quality materials. And it is the numerous painstaking details which make these Pelikan fountain pens really special - for instance, the shape of the cap head pays tribute to the crown of the Pharaoh Cheops.
The special execution of the Pelikan logo in high relief also demonstrates that a fascinating gem among fountain pens has been created.
