Pelikan Fire Limited Edition Fountain Pen

Since the beginning of time fire has captivated the man. As children, we are magically drawn to its warmth and glow and as adults, the play of flames in a fireplace or campfire evokes a sense of security. Our ancestors used fire as protection against wild animals and the cold.

When our forefathers began using fire for practical use this marked a turning point in mankind's history. Fire became an essential part of mankind's developing technologies and one of the mankind's most powerful instruments.

Stone Age man would collect the flames left over by lightning bolt strikes and would put them in an animal skull and observe them. Our homo erectus ancestors eventually learned to ignite the fire themselves approximately 790,000 years ago.

Fire became essential to the survival of the group since it provided warmth, light, and an ability to cook. Even today in present times fire provides us with the freedom to keep our homes in comfortable living conditions. It is possible that if the fire was not discovered to be used in a practical manner, we might even exist.

Pelikan honors mankind's skill into a powerful tool. The beauty and power of the elements are seen in this beautiful writing instrument. The Metal shaft is lacquered and polished repeatedly. Delicate laser, polished, and gold plated flames snake out from the red embers. The precious stones are all placed by hand. Fire alters are engraved in the high-grade resin. The writer using this instrument will be fascinated using the high-quality 18k gold nib with iridium top, which embossed with the relief of a blazing fire.

Only 500 creations made for the entire world.

  • The third fountain pen in the series "Achievements of Civilisation" celebrates the art of taming fire. The two previous models were "Evolution of Script" (2007) and "Calculation of Times" (2008).

  • The most important motif is the bowl filled with fire. History tells us that in former times, our ancestors had to wait for lightning to strike before they could 'catch' the flames. They filled skulls with oil in order to preserve the special flames that gave warmth, kept wild beasts at bay and helped to prepare food. Today, fire is just a match away, but to celebrate this achievement of civilisation,the bowl of fire is depicted on the clip, the especially created nib, and the cap.

  • The barrel is made of brass and lacquered several times in a vivid red. Every flame on the barrel is first lasered, then plated with 24 carat gold. Five real Topaz gem-stones make the sparks come alive. The nib is made of 18 carat/750 gold and has an iridium grain at the tip.

  • When burning wood, our forefathers learned to produce embers hotter than 500° Celsius (900° Fahrenheit) that were valuable for their survival. The limited edition "Fire" is dedicated to this ability and is restricted to 500 writing instruments worldwide. It was launched in August 2010.

  • The Limited Edition Fire is delivered in an elegant red gift box with a matching booklet that gives a delightful account of the theme and the intricate details of the fountain pen.

  • The "Fire" fountain pen has been released in the year 2010 and is limited to 500 pieces.
