The Fall will be plentiful with new Pelikan
items flying in from Germany.
2015 has been a banner year for Pelikan with the popular releases of the M200 Cafe Creme
, M800 Stresemann
and the M805 Clear Demonstrator
. It certainly looks like Pelikan is not going to let up on the gas in the fourth quarter. Slated for the fall, we have three new color extensions of the M205, M800 and M600. Plus, an old favorite is coming back that will really knock your socks off.
The Classic M205 Amethyst Demonstrator
Recently announced officially by Pelikan, the M205 Amethyst Demonstrator fountain pen
is due to arrive in September. The Amethyst color is intended to match the Edelstein 2015 ink of the year by the same name. The popular ink color has been hard to keep in-stock at Goldspot, so I would expect this pen would also be a hot seller as well. With Lamy failing to heed the call for a purple Safari pen for yet another year, there should be a good market for people looking for a purple plume.
The M205 Amethyst Demonstrator is described to be a "frosted" demonstrator, which will be interesting to see in person and compare to another tinted demonstrator, like the M205 Cognac of 2014. The Amethyst Demo will be offered as a package set with the bottle of Amethyst ink. The fountain pen is fitted with a stainless steel nib, offered in extra-fine, fine, medium or broad tip sizes. Retail pricing is expected to be about $175 for the fountain pen, $135 for the matching ballpoint and $215 for the fountain pen & ink set.
Information has already leaked on a couple other new fountain pens due in the Fall. Since images have already leaked and information has been dispersed through the web, we'll briefly discuss each pen.
The Souveran M800 Special Edition Burnt Orange with Dark Brown Cap
Perfect for Autumn, this M800 Burnt Orange
has an warm, orange barrel with a dark brown (almost black-looking) cap, section and piston knob. The color invites you in like a cup of spiced apple cider from a brisk day of raking leaves. The M800 is trimmed in gold and has a large 18kt two-tone, solid gold nib in extra-fine, fine, medium or broad sizes. Suggested retail will be around $850.
The Souveran M600 Special Edition Pink with White Stripes and White Cap
Although the aesthetic is considered to be a ladies' pen, this beautiful bird is sweet like a piece of striped candy. I feel the M600 Pink with White Stripes
can be enjoyed by anyone with a sweet tooth for luscious Pelikan pens. Suggested retail is estimated to be $625 for the fountain pen and $395 for the ballpen. Each pen is presented in a special, dedicated gift box that is laced up with red ribbon like a corset.
What hasn't leaked yet (to my knowledge) is that an old favorite within the M200 series is making a come-back and will be launched November 2015. I can't say much more than that, but if you stay tuned and subscribe to our blog, you'll be the first to know. ;-)
