If you like the fluidity of a fountain pen, but you worry it will be too messy for daily writing, you will love the smooth, sophisticated splendor of the luxurious Pelikan Souverän R800 rollerball pen. It has a ballpoint-style refill with a water-based ink. This makes it much more fluid-writing than the oil-based ballpoint pens. Luxury penmaker Pelikan's 800 series is its second largest. This particular pen is in excellent condition with a tiny bit of brassing on the cap band, but the rest of the pen looks nearly perfect. Made in West Germany, you get the idea of how old it must be. Includes a working black refill. The logo is gold with a black mama pelican and two chicks. 14cm capped.
