Engineering and craftsmanship combine for one of the finest pens you've likely never heard of. American pen collectors, in particular, seem very unfamiliar with the wonders of S.T. Dupont. This Parisian pen brand doesn't have a lot of visibility in the U.S., but once you try it, you might not be able to go back to anything else. Precision engineering makes even the act of putting the cap back on the pen a true experience. Such a smooth, gentle glide into a subdued but strong click. The 18k gold nib writes a firm, wet medium line. The luxury pen uses a standard international cartridge or converter. Unfortunately, we don't have a converter for this pen. The barrel is coated in genuine Chinese lacquer. The gold-plated cap shows a lot of light wear from use. No dents or deep scratches, but lots of very thin, shallow scratches. Wide bodied. 14.6cm capped.
