The high-quality lacquer of this classical writing instrument shines in deep black and hides a secret: The upper part of each Classic 215 writing instrument is made of metal. Due to this metal core the writing instrument has a very nice weight when you hold it in your hands. The cap with the characteristic Pelikan beak clip, the Pelikan logo crowning the top of the cap, and the typical classical shape all harmonize together and give this writing instrument the distinctive Pelikan design. The Classic 215 Ring uses a reliable piston-filling mechanism which is typical for a classical fountain pen. It is equipped with a polished high-quality stainless steel nib, available in several nib-sizes.
