The Pelikan M200 special edition demonstrator
that graces the cover of our new 2013 Goldspot Pens Catalog got an upgrade this week. For a pen that retails for $175, we felt that our customers would enjoy a higher quality nib from the original stainless steel that is installed on each demonstrator pen. After obtaining the proper nibs from Pelikan (nibs parts themselves retail for $170 each), we've fitted the M400 Souveran 14kt solid gold nib on the M200 pen to create an even more special
, special edition.
Above is a silhouetted picture of the M200 with the 14kt gold nib installed. It is a bi-color nib, which means there are both silver and gold tones to the design. This nib is traditionally installed on Pelikan Souveran M400 fountain pen models. Note that the M200 pen on the cover is depicted with the gold tone nib that is gold-plated, stainless steel. Having the solid gold nib on the pen adds the additional comfort, smoothness and degree of flexibility that the material offers over the stiffer stainless steel.
For a limited time, we are offering the M200 Demonstrator
with the 14kt solid gold nib for only $60 more than the stainless steel version ($139.95 steel vs $199.95 gold). Inventory on this is limited to the number of 14kt nibs we have on hand and it will be sold on a first-come, first-serve basis.
