Montblanc Pays Homage to Queen Elizabeth I with New Pen

Strong. Defined. Powerful. Innovative. These words describe the reign of Queen Elizabeth I, and what’s more impressive is that they also apply to Montblanc’s new pen dedicated to her throne.

Image result for Queen Elizabeth IMontblanc released two limited edition fountain pens that capture the essence of 16th century England. Thanks to Queen Elizabeth I, England was a world super power that created the foundation for a historic age of culture. Montblanc recognizes this epic era with its pens.

The brilliant lacquer of both writing instruments is modeled on the royal garments of the Queen. The royal insignia is well represented on the cap by the Tudor rose and the cross of the British Crown, along with a green cabochon on the clip. To finish off the adorned cap, the words “Video et taceo” meaning “I see and say nothing” are engraved as a reminder of the famous Queen’s signature motto.

The body of the pen is inspired by sports cars while the appointments are designed to reflect lug nuts. The fountain pens are equipped with a twist off cap and a rubberized grip section for optimal comfort. To top it all off, the pen is finished with an 18 karat gold nib with rhodium plating.Image result for cross pens c-series 2010

The rollerballs use a twist to engage the pen, and the capless design makes for a high tech look. As with the fountain pen, the body brings to mind a sports car, and the appointments scream lug nuts. The pen takes either gel ink or jumbo ballpoint refills, and both are included with your purchase.

I know you’ve been eying that new Audi A5 and that Infiniti G37, but who has the money for them these days? The new Cross C-Series is a great alternative, and the price won’t give you that pit in your stomach…or wallet.

Namiki’s Vanishing Point: Newer, Sleeker and Better Than Ever

The vanishing point. Nope, not as in the movie or part of a painting. I’m talking Namiki. The vanishing point is one of the brand’s most famous pens, and they’ve vamped it up to go with modern times.


The collection is now bigger and better and available in a fountain pen or ballpoint pen. The fountain pen is larger, but the durable metal body and attractive appointments still keep the pen looking unique. You have the choice of an 18 carat gold fine, medium or broad nib, along with a vast array of deep and rich color finishes. All combinations are completed with rhodium accents to make the look sleek and contemporary.

While all the colors that the pens come in are beautiful, one in particular stands out as particularly new and eye-catching; it’s black, but the middle of the pen looks almost splatter painted in all sorts of fun colors. There are little tiny spurts of blue, pink, yellow and green paint that looks like either spin art or a picture of a starry and clear night sky. I would definitely go with this one if you’re looking for something new and different.

Namiki’s new design also comes in a retractable ballpoint pen that boasts many similar features to the fountain pen. However, the body of the ballpoint is slimmer than the fountain pen, and can be yours in either blue or gun-metal. As with the fountain pen, the ballpoints are finished with rhodium accents to ensure the same modern, clean and classy look you’d expect from these Japanese artists.

One thing is for sure: Namiki is here to stay, and the vanishing point is proof of that. Check them out at Executive Essentials!

They have the same ergonomic triangular cross-section as the Grip 2001, while the non-slip grip zone helps provide a comfortable and relaxing hold for those marathon writing sessions. The mechanical pencil has a very tough 0.7-mm lead; a twist-out eraser is ever at the ready under the end cap.

The New Montblanc Meisterstuck Diamond Collection with Patented Diamond Shape

Montblanc makes history by becoming the first brand in the world to patent a diamond in the shape of their star logo. The process of carving this spectacular diamond took eight years. Montblanc has released a new collection of pens to honor this significant achievement. The new collections features the brand’s unmistakable white star diamond floating in the dome of the four styles of pens in the revamped Meisterstuck Diamond Collection. With its unique 43-facet cut sparkling brilliantly, this diamond is the crowning of a legend, the Meisterstuck Diamond Collection.

Montblanc has produced some of the finest writing instruments since the debut of their first pen in 1909. The Montblanc company stands out in the technical, functional and styling worlds of pen manufacturing, and the new Meisterstuck Diamond collection is no exception. The breakthrough with these pens, of course, is the 43-facet diamond star suspended in the top cap of each instrument. It is truly something an engineering marvel — the diamond appears to be floating, and has an amazingly brilliant, if not radiant sparkle.
