Pelikan Souverän Μ1000 Raden Red Infinity Limited Edition Fountain Pen
Limited Edition - Souverän® M1000 Raden Red Infinity
Raden is a traditional Japanese decorative craft mainly used for lacquer-ware and woodwork.
By working with small stripes of precious shell material, the artist of the Raden pen creates a beautiful, impressive piece of art.
Each piece is truly unique.
The fountain pen M1000 Red Infinity is made with particles from the Australian abalone shell.
The size of the abalone shell is small, and the greenish hues that are used for this precious fountain pen are particularly limited.
The first step to create the fountain pen Raden M1000 Red Infinity is to give the surface a red color impression by using the special Japanese Urushi lacquer. By carefully sprinkling silver powder, the red colored parts sparkle when turning the fountain pen in your hand. The rectangular stripes are made with particles from the precious green colored mother of pearl shell.
In the next step the stripes are fixed to the cap and barrel by a coating of lacquer.
Finally, the master artist individually signs and numbers each fountain pen by using the highly valued Maki-e technique.
With the limited edition Raden series, Pelikan applies this wonderful Japanese decorative craft to fountain pen models of its famous Souverän® series.
The Raden M1000 Red Infinity fountain pens are pieces of art with finely-chased 18 carat gold nibs in the size M.
Each fountain pen is encased in a traditional Japanese gift box which is made of Paulownia wood.
The Raden M1000 Red Infinity was introduced in 2023 in a limited edition of 400 numbered pieces worldwide.
The M1000 is 14.6 cm long when capped, and weights 34.1 grams empty.
