Introduced in 1998, the Pelikan M1000 is the largest pen in Pelikan's top Souverän line of standard production premium pens and one of the largest production pens available today.

The M1000 features double gold-plated bands on the cap and barrel end, one gold-plated band at the front of the grip section, and the trademark pelican beak clip.

The Souverän M1000 is only available as a bottle-filled fountain pen that utilizes a solid brass differential piston filling mechanism that sets the standard for smoothness among piston fillers.
