  1. Well, I did it. Since years ago I wanted to have a Pelikan Souveran M1000, but I do not like the golden finishings. Because of that, when I saw the new model M1005 Silver, I did not think it over at all. I tried to find it and bring it at home. By the way, to be able to buy it I had to sell my three Montblanc FP: one Classique, one 146 and one Edgar Allan Poe. I do not regret it. They've been lying in the drawer for years. I was sick of staining my hands. FP Souveran M1005 is a big one, as I like them. It is well built, solid, perfectly polished. It's really a beauty. The piston works softly. In principle this fountain pen has a good deposit of ink, but in practice I do not see many difference with the Sailor KOP, which is a cartrigde/converter. I mean I don’t think I can write much more pages with the amount of ink stored in the FP. This perhaps is due to the nib, which is really wet; in fact my M1005 has a EF nib which is not much different of Sailor M nib in width, although the Pelikan one is a little flexible. It’s also a singing nib, which I do not like. For me is an unpleasant sensation to notice that the two halves of the nib rub. In any case, the comparison is difficult: Sailor nib is unbeatable. In conclusion, this FP Souveran M1005 likes me very much, it’s well constructed, big and nice, and writes really well. It’s just that for me Sailor KOP is the top, as I said in this review. 1. Appearance & Design: 9/10 2. Construction & Quality: 9/10 3. Weight & Dimensions: 9/10 4. Nib & Performance: 7/10 5. Filling System & Maintenance: 8/10 6. Cost & Value: 9/10 7. Conclusion: Final score 8/10
