Ever year Montblanc honour a great literary figure, as part of their writers limited edition. In 2017 it was the legendary French writer, poet, aristrocrat and pioneering aviator Antoine de Saint-Expuery.

 

 

The design of the pen takes its inspiration from his aircraft, Caudron Simon, and his famous novel “Night Flight”. The engravings depict the sky observed by him on 1st Novemer 1929 and 23:00, with other details reflecting the cockpit of his plane. On the piston cone are engraved the geographical locations of important cities in his life.

 

 

The pen is fitted with an 18k medium nib and being a piston filler, your choice here is bottled ink.
