I just saw a nice video on the German Pelikan webpages showing how their fountain pens are made that might interest some of you here. I think the video is rather new. Check "Der Weg des Füllers" on this link:




It's only available in German from what I can see.

That's great, thanks. Any German speakers care to pass on any interesting stuff from the video ?


I now want a red Pelikano. Great see they're made in the same factory as the Souverain pens. Loved the Pelikano testing machines

Thanks for sharing. I saw an older (70's? 80's?) video of Pelikan from these forums once (it's a pretty popular video, I think) but it's really cool seeing a more modern video. The thing that I found fascinating was the big contrast in manual labor from the Pelikanos and the Souverans. It looked like the Pelikanos were fully automated and didn't have any human assembly.


Regardless of how much one values a low-end product versus a high-end one, I think it's just interesting seeing what exactly the manufacturing differences are.
