Back to the list of the top ten best-looking pens (in my opinion) in our shop…
1 6. Conway Stewart’s Edwardian Limited Edition (£1080)
The Edwardian is made of solid silver so as you’d expect it’s quite heavy (perhaps not one to write your magnus opus with) but pleasingly so. You get your pound of silver to speak, and being matte silver, though it was only released last year the Edwardian already it looks and feels like an antique from the past; very authentic.
7. The Yard O Led Perfecta (£305)
Another pen which I like for very similar reasons as the Edwardian. A bit shinier, but still classic – from the 19th Century this time. The Perfecta is slimmer and very pretty to look at.
3 8. Omas 360 Lucens Special Edition (£1275)
A very small Pelikan pen in two marble-like colours and gold trim that I think work together fantastically.
10. Monteverde Invincia Deluxe Fountain Pen with Rose Gold Trim
The Invincia Deluxe is one of the more modern of my choices, being mainly made of carbon fibre; my preference tends to be for the more classic-looking pens but the rose gold trim on this pen makes it a real hybrid of design – Monteverde got it perfectly right for a blend ‘of art and technology’.
Well there you have it - ten fantastically-designed pens! Not in order, as that would take me even longer than it did to whittle the designs down to just the top ten.
Do you have any of these on your own wishlist?
