The fountain pen M1000 Sunlight is made with particles from the abalone shell which originates in the Japanese Sea. The size of the abalone shell is small, and the colorful parts in the rainbow colors that can be used for this precious fountain pen are particularly limited.In the production process, the abalone shell is placed on the ground and flattened with a hard stone into very thin sheets. These sheets are cut into narrow strips and then affixed to the coating of lacquer around the cap and the barrel of the M1000 fountain pen. Afterward, the fountain pen is once again coated with lacquer, and then the surface is polished. With the Maki-e technique the artist individually signs and numbers each fountain pen. In 1929, Pelikan registered the patent for the piston mechanism, a new fountain pen filling system.
This technique, refined and updated, is still used today. The M1000 is ideal for people who write a lot as it has the biggest ink capacity of any piston fountain pen in the market today.The Pelikan fountain pens M1000 Sunlight are masterpieces with finely chased 18 carat gold nibs in the size M, accentuated with a rhodium décor. Each fountain pen is encased in a traditional Japanese gift box which is made of Paulownia wood. Eleased in the year 2005, and was available in a limited edition of only 200 pieces worldwide.
