aging, here is what it is - a solid cardboard box with the faux leather-like case inside that houses the pen itself. There's a strap and plastic emblem around it to secure it. Inside is information about the pen, as always. Not thrilling, but I do keep the little pouch for the pen. It's slim and safe and can be used for other pens as well.
It is the classic Pelikan design - a gold on gold Pelikan logo on the finial, a white cap, section, and end, highlighted by the gold clip, center band, and end rings.
NIB & PERFORMANCE
For my hands, the M400 is a perfect size. I can write with it either unposted or posted. The weight and balance are wonderful for me. The nib is so smooth and juicy that it requires almost no pressure to write, which results in a lovely writing experience. I adore it.
