The new Onoto Excel is now shipping.. The Excel in black acrylic with sterling silver fittings is the first in an entirely new range of Onoto pens and as such, is sure to be in demand from collectors around the world.
Smaller and slightly slimmer than many of the other models in our range which are all based on the 1937 Magna, the Excel still retains the classic look of the 1920s and 30s, and is certainly a pen with panache!
Made from rich black acrylic and complemented by a broad sterling silver cap band and combined hooded cap-end and clip, it’s highly distinctive and very elegant. Hold the Excel and you will feel the same perfect balance that comes with all Onoto fountain pens.
The distinctive sterling silver cap-end is engraved with ‘Onoto England’ while the barrel is engraved with ‘Onoto THE Pen’ the distinctive and iconic marketing slogan first used in 1910 which set Onoto apart as a brand and gave it market leadership in the UK and around the world for many years. A sterling silver barrel button with the edition number engraved into it finishes the overall luxury feel. The Onoto Excel in Black acrylic is produced in a limited edition of only 50 pens. Each one comes with an Onoto Presentation Box and a signed Certificate of Authenticity, together with an Onoto History booklet, an Onoto blotter and a cleaning cloth to keep your pen in tip-top condition. Also included is a leaflet on “How to care for your Fountain Pen”, and a booklet on English hallmarks to explain the history of these stamps of quality. Each Excel is hallmarked on the sterling silver cap band and includes the famous “OPC” Sponsor’s Mark for Onoto Pen Company.

A new finish in the Sailor Precious Woods collection has just arrived in the UK: Old Teak. Origin: Indonesia. The old teak used for this pen is 50 – 100 years old . Ruined houses and temples are dismantled and the wood reused. Teak is strong, highly durable with a beautiful grain. Often called the ‘Diamond of Trees’. Such old teak holds the oil content after felling and the grain is fine and smooth. The more the pen is used, the darker and more beautiful the colour turns.

Also in with a revamp this year is the S. T. Dupont Elysee range. No less than six new finishes are now available. In 1973, S.T.Dupont created a revolution in the world of writing by launching the first luxury ballpoint pen. In 1996, the Olympio line saw the light of day, embodying the pleasure of writing. The pen became a jewel. In 2011, all this legendary expertise is condensed into ELYSEE.
The new symbol of S.T.Dupont’s craftsmanship, the ELYSEE pen is aptly named. From its very beginnings in 1872, S.T.Dupont has always been chosen by the most powerful figures in the world. An emblem of French luxury, S.T.Dupont was rapidly adopted by governments and men of power. The brand was therefore appointed official supplier to the Elysée palace, serving French presidents from René Coty to Vincent Auriol, Georges Pompidou, Valéry Giscard d’Estaing, Jacques Chirac and François Mitterrand. There is no more right or left wing: the excellence and power of S.T.Dupont products is hailed across the political spectrum. Even today, the French Republic uses them for many of his official gifts.
