The Pelikan company was founded in 1838. The Graphos Indian ink drafting fountain pen for architects and engineers was introduced in 1934. The Graphos pen was sold in sets with one holder and a number of interchangeable nibs. One of the larger sets had a pen holder, sixty different nibs and three ink feeds. Pelikan was reorganized in 1978. After that the Graphos pens were made by Rotring
at that time affiliated with Pelikan.
