In 1992 there were still many buyers who enjoyed slim, serious pens. So Pelikan created a new fountain pen series, with the barrel made of high quality metal in a design that was to be regarded as a classic: the 'New Classic'. All the fountain pens have a black grip section like the Signum series. The nibs and feeds of the pens are made in the classic Pelikan style, and the form of the narrow tapered clips is also classic. All fountain pens have a gold plated trim ring on the end of the grip section. Likewise, the fountain pens with gold nib had a extra trim ring on the cap, which the fountain pens with steel nibs don´t have. A nib change is possible only by replacing the entire nib and grip section.
These pens were offered as a range (P =) Cartridge (K =) Ballpoint pens and (D =) mechanical pencil.
Since sales of this series were not as successful as desired, production was discontinued after a short time.
