Considered a “grail pen” by many collectors, the Toledo M910 Yellow was produced by Pelikan in very limited quantities beginning 2008. The M910 is the same size as the Souveran M800 and offers the same 18-karat gold nib and large ink capacity, but features a matching translucent yellow ink window and weighs an additional 0.4 oz (11 g) - 40% more than a standard M800 - due to the hand-cut sterling silver binde wrapped around the barrel.
Note: At check-out, you can select a nib size from Medium or Fine (only 2 available). Quantities are limited to 40 units.
Since 1931, the Toledo models of the Pelikan M910 have featured a centuries old metalworking technique known as Damasquino, named after Damascus, where the technique originated. Brought to Spain by the Arabs, Damasquino eventually became a well-practiced craft in the Spanish town of Toledo. The meticulous and artistic process starts with engraving a pattern into the surface, then a thin sheet of silver is laid over the pattern and embossed into the metal. Afterwards, the piece is heated to over 1,000°F in order to oxidize the background, while the silver pattern details increase in sheen.
Engraved with intricate artwork depicting Pelikan’s namesake bird, each Toledo is individually numbered and initialed by the artisan metalworker who created it. The rest of the barrel, as well as the threaded cap are made from high-grade yellow resin and are fitted with sterling silver rings and a trademark pelican beak clip in German silver. To preserve the beauty of these precious metals, the barrel’s artwork and all silver fittings are coated with palladium or rhodium finish.
