Pelikan M800 Limited Editions (Old Style)

In 1993 Pelikan introduced a limited edition model - very much the trend at that time both in fountain pens and for many other products - with the M800 Blue Ocean.

These official Limited Editions are shown on the site by the name of Limited Editions. Many other models were manufactured in limited quantities, too, e.g. company orders, but these are listed under the regular model number.

White Tiger
Pelikan presents the 3. limited edition from Chinese mythology. The 'White Tiger' has an edition of only 888 pieces. The '8' is true in China and the Far East as a lucky number.

It is a strong sign that health and happiness promotes, protects the good and punishes the wicked. Because the White Tiger embodies these different qualities, it also symbolizes 'hope' and 'fear'.
Now the White Tiger by the skilled hands of absolute masters of their craft in Pelikan was presented beautifully and individually inverted on a fountain pen barrel. The barrel is made of solid 24 carat gold-plated 925 sterling silver.

Gekko means moonlight in Japanese. This fountain pen is made with the Australian abalone shell. Though the size of this abalone is big, the blue color part of this abalone is small. So it is necessary to select the best blue color parts. The abalone shell is placed on the ground and flattened with a hard stone into very thin sheets. These sheets are cut into narrow strips and then affixed to the coating of lacquer around the cap and the barrel of the M800 fountain pen. Once again, it is coated with lacquer, and then the surface is polished. The Pelikan logo is drawn with the famous Maki-e technique, surrounded by matching colors of particles of the abalone shell.
