The Flanders Pen

In Joint Venture with TMB Art Metal, we introduce you to The Flanders Pen.

Crafted from copper retrieved from British artillery shell drive bands discovered in the fields of the Somme region of France, and Ypres in Belgium. The poppy incised cap button gets its colour from red enamel mixed with earth gathered from Essex Farm, Ypres. The same location that Lieutenant-Colonel John McCrae of the Canadian Army Medical Corps penned his world-famous poem, ‘In Flanders Fields’, on 3rd May 1915.

This beautifully crafted pen uniquely incorporates two elements of World War One history – metal and earth.

The Flanders pen is available in a limited edition of 200.

The Flanders pen is 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 stunning fountain pen is crafted from highly polished black acrylic and is complemented by copper cap band and button with a bronze Onoto Chevron clip.

Hold the Magna Classic and you will marvel at its perfect balance and how tactile it feels – it is also one of the most robust pens on the market today, thanks to its durable, high-density acrylic composition.

The Flanders pen is available in a limited edition of 200.
