While recalling an historical model that dates to 1937, the new Pelikan M101N Lizard has been updated to reflect today's fountain pen manufacturing: the lizard-patterned barrel and cap of the fountain pen are made of cellulose acetate. The clip and bands are palladium plate, and the 14-karat gold nib (extra fine, fine, medium and broad) is rhodium plated. This special edition, priced at $625, is available in a limited quantity beginning in December--just in time for Pelikan's 175th anniversary in 2013. Looks like next year holds more surprises in celebration.
