Rare Pelikan M800 Demonstrator M. The gold trim and polished brass piston mechanism give the pen an elegance appearance.
But, the transparent body give it some something special. The piston holding the ink on its place, the tiny bubbles inside the ink, the nib shining through the transparent cap. Its just stunning and nice to look at. I have the non-etched version. I like that one better because for me, it does not need the extra things on it.A note could be the combination of gold with transparent resin. I like it better than silver, but you have to like it. Also, ink gets into the threat of the pen. The design is the standard souverän M 800 Souverän. Classical pelikan shape in a modern jacket. Weight & Dimensions The M 800 Souverän has an brass piston mechanism, giving it the same balances as the other M 800 Souveräns. Compared to other pelikans (M200 - M600) its more heavy at the back.
Therefore I dont post the cap, like I did with the M600 with does not have a brass mechanism. Overall it is nicely balanced and a nice size.
The nib is a 18K duotone medium sized nib. Like my other M 800 Souverän nib it writes really smooth but not that flexible. My other pelikan M 800 Souverän fine nib (Pelikan Golf) write like a real fine. This one writes a small bit wider.
But also a lot smoother. Its by far the smoothest pen in my collection.Also upside down the nib writes perfectly, giving a nice thin line. Filling System Like all pelikan souverän pens, the M 800 Souverän uses a piston filler. The mechanism is made of solid brass making it more durable. Turning the knob is going really smooth. But this is the case with all pelikans. Like the M 800 Souverän it holds enough ink for a long time writing. I dont know how many pages you can write with a full pen, because I fill the pen often. I dont know if this is the case with all M 800 Souveräns and m1000, but the mechanism seems to been polished.
History I have read pelikan made about 3000 M 800 Souverän demos. Most of them etched in English, some in Spanish, and a few without. So that makes it a special pen. Altogether, 3000 Clear Demonstrators were produced, the majority with English engravings, a small number with Spanish engravings and an even smaller number with no engravings at all.
