Condition and information:

Listed here is one of the most famous Pelikan pens, the MK10. This was one of the first pens to be leakproof in variable pressure environments, such as high altitude and airplanes. The front section has quite an elaborate feeding system, thus preventing ink leaks of any sort. This is one of the most reliable and elegant Pelikan pens ever made. Extremely well built, meant to last and endure hard work for decades. The pen has a stunning vintage appeal with a green and black color combination. The front section and cap are made out of black resin, this material always shines and it's also scratch protective. The top of the cap is decorated with the recognizable Pelikan logo with the two chicks. The cap features nice crisp engraving with the Pelikan branding name.

The pen features a slip-on cap that posts nicely giving the pen a longer length and balance while writing. It is fitted with an EF extra fine size solid steel, gold plated nib. This kind of nib will never bend in accidental drops, or rust; it is stiff, very good for long or precise work. The nib is perfect for notebook writing, where a small precise typeface is needed, no excess ink as the pen writes constant EF extra-fine line. This is a pen for everyday use that does not require special maintenance and will always work reliably. It will provide you with the perfect smooth writing experience simply gliding on any paper.

The pen features a clear see-through ink window, in beautiful green color which is a great feature since the user can always know how much ink is left, for long writing sessions with no surprises.
The pen uses a smooth piston which is one of the best piston systems invented by Pelikan, consisting of 8 parts, with a silicone cork that never leaks. The pen has a great form factor, a design that still looks modern decades after it was made. 
One of the greatest everyday workhorse Pelikan fountain pens with great built quality, performance, and appeal.

The pen comes in mint condition, perfectly operational, and ready to be used.
