Pelikan 400NN (Merz & Krell)

Pelikan 400NN - Merz & Krell.

Pelikan had already stopped the production of the 400NN by 1965. In 1973 a new edition appeared. This was manufactured by Merz & Krell and differs in some details from the original model. The filling knob is flush with the barrel, as is the transition from the grip section to the barrel.

The threads of the cap are also different, so the cap of an old 400NN will not fit the M & K.

Since the Merz & Krell model also the writing characteristics of the nibs are different, so far, the nibs of the 400 models were ground as Italic nibs, now the nibs have a ball point which offers no line variance.
