As a Special Edition, Pelikan launched the popular model 800 of the Souverän series in August 2010 in a new material called blue o‘ blue.
The o‘ is short for ‚over‘ because the barrel looks as if several broad strokes of blue in different shades are put one over another. Both barrel and cap are made of this slightly translucent material.
The technical production process goes through several steps. First, the acrylic material is cast into thick slabs, then cut into rectangular pieces. These pieces are next turned into a round shape and hollowed. Then the ready blue o’blue sleeves are put into a mould where the filling reservoir (or inner material of the cap) is added. In the last step, the final pieces are cut into their spherical shape and polished to a bright sheen.
This is a past special edition made its debut in 2010 and that was 10 years ago.
