Montblanc JFK special edition at The Pen Shop
The Pen Shop is proud to present the newest star in Montblanc’s prestigious collection. Montblanc began bringing their Great Characters collection to us in 2009 in celebration of those who have made a truly remarkable impression on the modern world. Artists, musicians and scientists have all been previously honoured and in 2018 it is the turn of one of the 20th Century’s greatest politicians; John F. Kennedy.
Known simply by his initials JFK is synonymous with inspiring words and legendary charisma. The newest edition pays homage by creating a pen collection with gravitas, that will not fail to be noticed.
To set this piece as truly something different, much like the man himself, Montblanc have moved away from their traditional sartorial colours and taken inspiration from Harvard College, the Ivy League school Kennedy was so proud to attend.
The deep burgundy precious resin and champagne gold appointments take their cue from Harvard’s college colours and reflect JFK’s laid back style. The nib of the fountain pen features a beautiful engraving of the lunar module. Three rings adorn the cap representing Kennedy’s three brothers; Joseph, Robert and Edward. The clip is engraved with the initials JFK and the cap is of course finished with the infamous black and white Montblanc emblem.
This collection also marks a collaboration with Best Buddies, which was created by friend of Montblanc, Anthony Shriver, the nephew of JFK to help children and adults with disabilities. To celebrate this new edition, Montblanc made a new donation to Best Buddies and is building a long lasting partnership with them.
