Condition and information:
One of the most rare and most beautiful Pelikan M30 Rolled Gold pens, in a dark blue, navy version. This is a very rare offshoot of the standard black M30 rolled gold. This pen was made in very limited numbers, and very few of these are available on the market or ever come out for sale. This was the flagship pen of the Pelikan's MK line, the 30 Rolled Gold model, also known as the M30. Unlike gold plate, this rolled gold will never ware off as its much thicker. When this pen was launched in the 60's, it was a radical change in design, where the old rounded form factor pens were replaced with the new, modern pens such as this one. Even today, nearly 50 years later, this pen looks stunning and modern, matching and even surpassing many of the newly made pens. These pens were very successful because they were reliable, easy to use, fill and maintain. This pen was also the first Pelikan pen to feature airtight slip-on cap. This ensured a fast deployment of the pen where no tread was needed, but also a leak proof pen. The nib is solid 14K 585 gold, F size very smooth on the paper and has full flexibility, so it will write M, B, BB and even 3B if pressed while writing. Thus it will produce any desired thickness line. Piston is very smooth. These MK pistons were the peak of piston technology by Pelikan with 8 parts, and airtight marketed as "airplane safe". This was meant to keep the ink always in place, also to be able to be used in different pressure environments. Truly remarkable Pelikan classic, still with amazing appeal and design, and still a perfect everyday fountain pen.
