My Pelikan Souverän M805F.

I bought it in March 2020, just as the Plague the pandemic of Covid19 was arriving in the UK.


Those of you have a keen eye for a waspy will notice that it has a bi-colour nib on it, rather than one of the entirely-rhodium-plated ones that one would expect to find on an M805 of that vintage.

This is because the lovely people at the company from whom I bought it allowed me to have mine with the bi-colour nib. Which is what would have been on an M805 when I first saw one. I wanted to buy one then, but could not justify spending that much money on one pen.


In the subsequent years, the prices charged for this pen only went up. And up again.

In 2020, with the pandemic arriving in my country, I realised that I would certainly be finding myself stuck in a ‘lockdown’, and also that I may even actually be dying soon. So I decided the time had definitely arrived for me to stump-up the Silly Money necessary to buy myself a Souverän 😁
