My Pelikan M400 Souverän White Tortoise is one of the prettiest fountain pens I own. The green, brown and golden striated barrel, with white cap, section and blind cap, gold ring accents and gold Pelikan clip is just stunning. It has a broad oblique nib that makes a beautiful shaded line especially with Caran d’Ache Amazon. This ink shades beautifully with this nib. The nib is white and yellow 14 karat gold and has lovely incised scroll designs and a line inscription of a mother Pelikan with two chicks. I ordered this pen from Printhardcopy on the Fountain Pen Network who has a good inventory available most of the time at good prices. He ships very quickly.
