Condition and information:
Launched in 1997, the Celebry line was Pelikan's try to appeal to the wider public with more modern fountain pen design. The decade leading up to the 1990s were probably some of the most difficult time for the fountain pen manufacturers. What the ballpoint pen didn't destroy from the fountain pen market, forgot it and left it behand to die slowly, now it was left hopelessly exposed and to the mercy of the era of the computers to end the fountain pen forever. Fortunately and still difficult to understand why, that didn't happen, on the contrary, as the computers entered our lives, it made easier for people to share this passion and fountain pens returned again on a big door.
The Celebry pens came in several variations, and the pen offered here is one of the flagship pens, the gold and silver plated P595 with fine Godron parallel lines guilloche finish texture, introduced a year later in 1998. The pen simply shines and its difficult to capture in photos. The grip section is matte finished gold plate which feels nice in the grip of the fingers. The pen is extremely simple to use, just stick in a cartridge and its ready to write immediately, a piston converter too to fill it easily from a bottle of ink. Extremely easy to clean and maintain, just open it up and use tap water to flush it, and even the feed-nib section is super easy to remove, one just needs to pull them out. Since the feed has a vertical cut-out that aligns with a notch into the section, its extremely easy to put them back in place as they will self align. The best about this pen and to our surprise is the nice, soft, a joy to write with fully flexible nib. It's solid 18k 750 two tone gold, and will produce a wider lines with the gentlest push while writing. We've managed to get up to 1.5mm thick line, double broad and it could get even wider. It is a wet nib, always starts easily and will write with ease even at a very fast pace. This depends on the ink too, but generally any standard Pelikan 4001 ink will run nicely.
The pen comes in mint condition with no signs of use, no scratches or dings, only some minor sings of use and storage.
