With the first quarter of 2021 done and dusted, uncertainty remains over just how extensively the pandemic may continue to disrupt Pelikan’s operations, including their timeline of new releases. The Petrol-Marbled M205 should be landing soon for those eager to get their next Pelikan fix. If you were hoping for something a bit bigger, just today Pelikan has given us a glimpse of the next Maki-e release coming out of Hannover. Meet the Maki-e Seven Treasures limited edition, the successor to 2020’s very well received Kingfisher. Pelikan has this to say of their newest model;
“Seven Treasures are listed in the Buddhist scriptures. The typical seven treasures are gold, silver, lapis lazuli, crystal, giant clam, coral, and agate. The seven treasures are expressed on this Pelikan M1000 as auspicious omen motifs by drawing additional fortunate items. By this, the Pelikan Maki-e ‘Seven Treasures’ fountain pen is a collection of symbols which are believed to bring good fortune.”
Keeping with past trends, the Seven Treasures is once again built off of Pelikan’s flagship M1000 chassis. Limited to just 123 pieces worldwide, this newest Maki-e release is anticipated to launch sometime in June 2021.
