Thanks very much for looking at our listing for this Montblanc Jonathan Swift Writers Limited Edition Ballpoint Pen, which comes with its book style presentation box (including outers) and stamped paperwork – confirming first purchase on 21st December 2012. The pen has been carefully used and is presented in excellent condition. Only 12800 were produced and this is number 01161 – this pen was originally part of a set, hence the larger presentation box and outer sticker.

 

 

Launched in 2012, as the yearly offering for the Montblanc Writers Edition, the Jonathan Swift is a tribute to this legendary Irish writer.

 

 

Best known as the creator of ‘Gulliver’s Travels” and it’s from this that Montblanc takes its inspiration for the pen. The black barrel and cap are decorated with layered inlays, which are reminiscent of the ropes used to bind Gulliver on Lilliput island. The overall shape is a nod to Gulliver’s tricorn and the cap bears Swift’s signature. The clip is shaped like the staircase that the mayor of Lilliput had to climb to talk to Gulliver.

 

 

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

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”.
