Pelikan Souveran Fountain Pen Sizes

Range of Pelikan Fountain Pens

Our most popular type of pen is a fountain pen and so we have put together a size comparison of the fountain pens from the the Epoch, Pura, Souveran and Ductus ranges.

In the below comparison, it is important to note that the M600 in the centre could be considered a 'medium' sized pen. 

Our best selling fountain pens are the M400 (or M405 which has silver rather than gold trim) for both men and women and M800 (or M805) which is most bought by men who prefer a large pen.

The M1000 is a very large pen which is most often bought as a signature pen for men or a pen for small amounts of writing, such as writing doctor's prescriptions.
