The Pelikan M700 Toledo Black Fountain Pen is a timeless classic that combines old-world craftsmanship with modern design. This fountain pen is crafted from genuine Damascus steel and features an intricate pattern that has been hand-engraved and filled with gold. The Pelikan Toledo fountain pen has lot more under the art than what’s visible to the eyes. The art of working with Damascus steel goes back thousands of years. It means that steel or iron objects are decorated by engraving a pattern into the surface. Next, a thin sheet of gold will be placed over the pattern and will be embossed deep into the material with the help of a little hammer. In order to show the newly filled pattern, the object will then be heated to approximately 800°C. By doing so, the steel surfaces will oxidize and turn black, while the gold starts to shine. This technique traveled with the Arabs into Spain and has been perfected throughout the centuries, particularly in the famous Spanish town Toledo. In the year 1931 Pelikan adopted this technique for the Toledo model with so much success that the design has remained virtually unchanged throughout the years. Today the decorative sleeve is made of one piece in Sterling Silver. It is treated carefully in various different steps until the motive is covered with a layer of gold (or palladium to obtain a silver surface). Every Toledo fountain pen is a unique piece made in Germany. This is because the tiny engravings in the motif are made by hand, making each Pelikan feather come alive. The cap and front piece as well as the end piece are made of black high-quality resin. The Pelikan Toledo is launched in two sizes, M700 and M900. The Pelikan M700 Toldeo fountain pen displays a hand crafted design incised into a sleeve of 24K gold-over-sterling-silver (vermeil). One side of the barrel depicts a pelican with its head bowed, while the other side showcases a pelican and its young. In contrast with the Toldeo M700, this fountain pen is larger, based on the M800 size, and has a longer engraved sleeve. The clip and cap rings here are shiny, whereas in the M700 Toldeo they have a matte finish. Now you can experience the unique beauty of Damascus steel with the Pelikan M900 Toledo Black Fountain Pen from Makoba. Its stylish and subtle design is perfect for everyday use, while its classic look is perfect for making a statement. This fountain pen is a timeless piece of art that will last a lifetime.

Montblanc Ink Bottle, Permanent Blue - 60ml
not much .... already tried and tested product
Design, materials and build are top notch. True to the Japanese aesthetics and workmanship. The two tone nib is just gorgeous. Right size and balance for me (posted). There is zero hesitation when it comes to writing. Pen simply glides over. Medium fine nib is having some feed, which I prefer. Ink capacity is decent for my use. Couldn’t have asked for anything more. This is one pen that should be part of every collection.
These Sheaffer pens are great, and various refills are possible. I chose black for a change, it comes black mat with a Porshe like red line. Plus you can engrave it.
Noodler's 19103 X-Feather Ink Bottle, Blue - 88ml
I have purchased this pen to gift it to someone. This pen is such a beauty with ebonite body. Makoba team made the whole process of purchasing so smooth. The team was kind enough to consider my request of delivering the product in one day on my request and shipped the order on urgent basis.
The pen I received was in great condition with original box.
Bought recently, filled ink and tested it. Kept other pens aside and I am using it now. Really good. I go for broad nibs usually. This one is broader. Again thanks to Makoba Chennai staff for delivering it in few hours.
A rather unconventional shade of purple, almost in the range of plum. Moderately wet, saturated ink without water resistance. Ideal for a wet pen. The shade is highly comparable to the Pilot Iroshizuku Yama-budo.
I'm surprised by the service it's very good absolutely amazing staff. They all need a raise.
Only problem prices are in mrp in the stores so don't expect the discounted prices in the website
Makoba sent my international package quickly and didn’t charge for shipping. Would purchase again
You get something special for just 150 Rupees!
Awesome pen delivered in time
This was the first pen I bought in Makoba. Chose this pen for its colour, look and the promise of a special cap not letting the nib and feed to dry out. It is living up to its promises. Very good to hold and write. Wet and smooth.
