Condition and information:

One of the most famous Pelikan pens, the MK10. The pen is crafted in black resin, this material always shines and it's also scratch protective. It is accented with gold plated trims which together with the black resin give the pen an elegant look and appeal. The pen has a great form factor, a design that still looks modern decades after it was made. The cap ring features nice crisp engravings that read “Pelikan” and “Germany”.

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 as well as the sealing cap which prevents ink leaks of any sort. These are some of the most reliable and elegant Pelikan pens ever made. Extremely well built, meant to last and endure hard work for decades, very good for long or precise work.

The pen is fitted with a solid steel F size nib. This gold plated steel nib will never bend in accidental drops or rust; it is stiff, very good for long or precise work. This is a pen for everyday use that does not require special maintenance and will always work reliably. Clear see-through purple ink window and smooth piston; one of the best piston systems invented by Pelikan, consisting of 8 parts, with a silicone cork which never leaks. Logo located on top of the cap. Slip-on cap for fast deployment and ease of use. One of the greatest everyday workhorse Pelikan fountain pens.

The pen is in mint near NOS condition and comes in its original carton box with instructions from the manufacturer.
