The Shackleton Pen

The Shackleton Pen pays homage to the heroics of Ernest Shackleton and his crew during their ill-fated voyage to cross Antarctica.

The ice blue enamelling and engraving to the cap symbolises The Endurance trapped in the ice with waves engraved on the barrel. The cap button is engraved with the Star found on the ship’s stern and the cap band is engraved with Shackleton’s famous quote “Optimism is true moral courage”.

The Shackleton Pen is available in a limited edition of 29, with each edition number engraved with the name of one of the crew members.
