Thanks very much for looking at our listing for this Montblanc Great Characters Miles Davis Limited Edition 1926 Fountain Pen, which comes with a Montblanc presentation box (it’s the Miles Davis special edition version). The pen has never been used and is presented in virtually as new condition. Only 1926 examples were produced and this is number 1057.
Released in 2016, this eye-catching limited edition pays tribute to the legendary Jazz musician, Miles Davis. The barrel and cap are engraved with lacquered symbols that reference the five major jazz periods that he was influential in creating. The spiral on the cap is a nod to the tornado he witnessed as a child, which he claimed was the spiritual source of the powerful wind needed to play the trumpet. The piston cone is shaped like the special “Heim” trumpet mouthpiece he used and the blue colour is a reference to his album, Kind of Blue. The clip features a trumpet finger button design.
The pen is fitted with an 18k fine nib and it’s a piston filler, so your choice here is bottled ink.
The important details are as follows…
– Fine Nib
– Virtually As New Condition
With every pen that we sell we provide a card that includes the manufacturer, model, serial / limitation number and date it was purchased from us. We do this because our customers like to have documentation showing that it’s been purchased from a trusted seller. As the Financial Times said recently in their How To Spend It publication – “izods is an e-cache of ultra fine fountain pens”.
