Visconti Divina Imperial Blue

A Visconti Divina Imperial Blue fountain pen used as a hair grip by my partner on a recent visit to the shop. We normally stock the oversize Visconti Divina fountain pens in black and Imperial Blue finishes with the 925 silver trim, and as can be seen in the image she selected the Imperial Blue finish to keep her hair in place. The Divina uses the Hook Safe Lock system developed by Visconti to attach the cap to the pen, preventing the accidental unscrewing of the pen cap. View them and their full specification at Penbox.

World’s Smallest Pen Museum

After years in the planning and with the help of EU funding, philanthropy and private donations, the world’s smallest pen museum has now opened its doors to the public. The museum curator has gathered exhibits to illustrate a potted history of the fountain pen from c. 1880s – 1980s. Early examples of the ball pen are included as they brought about the demise of the fountain pen at the time. Children must be accompanied by an adult.

Graf von Faber Castell Pen of the Year 2007

Since 2003 each year Graf von Faber Castell have produced a limited edition superior oversized fountain pen, each produced for one year only and referred to as the Pen of the Year by GvFC. Every pen being individually numbered and presented in an exclusive luxury gift box with papers, brochure, and a certificate certifying that the pen is produced for a limited period only. A large 18k two tone nib is the beating heart of these fountain pens.

Above we have photographed the Graf von Faber Castell Pen of the Year 2007 in petrified wood, which having recently obtained, we now have for sale at Penbox. The pen has never been filled and is as originally supplied from Graf von Faber Castell. We feel that this pen will not be available for long, especially at this price, so grab it whilst you can.

Pelikan M800 Stone Garden

New from Pelikan and now at Penbox is the latest special edition Pelikan M800 Stone Garden fountain pen and matching ballpoint pen. This pen looked to have a very attractive finish in the pre launch media pack images issued to retailers, and now having taken delivery at the shop we can confirm that the media images were not misleading, and that the marbled barrel, dark blue cap, filling actuation knob, and nib section on the fountain pen combine to result in a fascinating finish. The 18k two tone nib comes in a choice of grades.
