Thanks very much for looking at our listing for this Montblanc Rudyard Kipling Writers Edition Fountain Pen, which comes with its Montblanc presentation box (including outers) and unstamped booklet. The pen has never been used and is presented in essentially as new condition – the M sticker, confirming a medium nib, remains on the barrel. Only 9800 were produced and this is number 5067.
Launched in 2019, as the yearly offering for the Montblanc Writers Edition, the Kipling takes its inspiration the legendary ‘The Jungle Book’. The shape of the pen is a nod to the story by Ankus in the second jungle book, with the colour scheme reflecting the cover the book’s first U.S. edition. The design of the clip reflects the wolf pack, with the beginning and end of the poem “If” being engraved on the cap top and cone ring. The cap is engraved with Kipling’s initials, R.K.
The pen is fitted with an 18k medium nib and it’s a piston filler, so your choice here is bottled ink.
The important details are as follows…
- Essentially As New Condition
- Montblanc Presentation Box
- Medium Nib
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”.
