Based on the style and shape of one of the most famous fountain pens ever made – the Onoto Magna of 1937 which is still acclaimed by many as the Best fountain pen ever made – this Magna Classic has 3 gold-plated sterling silver cap bands with the gold-plated sterling silver Onoto Chevron clip.

An exclusive range of pens was created by Onoto for the University of Cambridge to commemorate its 800th anniversary in 2008. As a result of the success of these pens, additional ranges were created for Cambridge alumni around the world.

The University of Cambridge comprise a range of plain and pinstripe acrylic pens, as well as sterling silver and gold-plated sterling silver versions.

Most University of Cambridge pens will require personalisation, therefore no stock pens will be made and lead time can vary depending on the level of personalisation. It can also be available as a generic University of Cambridge Pen (without college crest).
