Since 1929, the Pelikan pen has been recognized as one of the premier German pens. Beginning with the introduction of a revolutionary piston filling mechanism, Pelikan pens have continued to rely upon their mechanical innovation and reliability, rather than slick marketing. Pelikan unites uncommon materials and singular design to create some of the finest pens Art Materials has to offer. Finely crafted in more than 300 individual steps, Pelikan pens are a testimony to dedication, precision and perfection. These pens are designed to inspire and enjoy a very solid reputation for quality and performance among pen fans.
