Souverän® M805 Raden Royal Platinum
Limited Edition Souverän® 805
Raden Royal Platinum
Raden is a traditional Japanese decorative craft mainly used
for lacquer ware and woodwork.
By working with small stripes of precious shell material,
the artist of the Raden pen creates a beautiful, impressive
piece of art. Each piece is truly unique.
The first step to create the fountain pen Raden M805
Royal Platinum is to give the surface a deep black impression
by using the special Japanese Urushi lacquer. Then the typical
stripes are made with particles from the precious white
mother of pearl shell. A platinum foil is carefully affixed
one by one to the backside of the stripes. In the next step
the stripes are fixed to the cap and barrel by a coating of laquer.
Finally, the artist individually signs and numbers each fountain
pen with the Maki-e technique, which used to be reserved
exclusively for Japanese Royals as an indication of their power.
With the limited edition Raden series, Pelikan applies this
wonderful Japanese decorative craft to fountain pen models
of its famous Souverän® series.
The Raden M805 Royal Platinum fountain pens are pieces of art
with finely-chased and completely rhodanized 18 carat gold nib
in the size M. Each fountain pen is encased in a traditional
Japanese gift box which is made of Paulownia wood.
The Raden M805 Royal Platinum will be available as from
September 2018 in a limited edition of 388 pieces worldwide.
