My life is my message. Mahatma Gandhi
In honor of the great pacifist advocate of Indian independence, teacher of non-violence and exemplar of humanity, Montblanc created this exceptional pen.
The solid white gold barrel, brushed in a horizontal linen pattern, represents truth and peace.The barrel is wrapped in golden wire, reminiscent of a spindle, Gandhi's favored symbol of common cause with the people.The clip is set with a fever opal, whose cut is reminiscent of a spinning wheel, an object of great symbolic value to Gandhi.The saffron colour stands for courage and the willingness to make sacrifices.
Medium (M) 18K two-tone gold nib, engraved with a portrait of Gandhi.
It comes with: Outer box, display box, booklet/ International Reply Card (duly signed and stamped), and a small hardcover volume of Gandhi's words of wisdom.
Fully working and ready to write. Never used and never inked. Still with plastic film around the nib section. Converter filling.
· The design of the 750 white gold barrel and cap reflects the exquisite texture of Indian shot silk.
· In contrast to this smooth, even surface, a gold wire, entwined by hand around the middle of each limited edition, evokes the roughly-wound yarn on the spindle with which Gandhi spun every day for half an hour, regardless of where he was or whom he was talking to.
· The fever opal is representing the orange colour that is part of the Indian flag
· The nib shows the image of Mahatma Gandhi, walking on a stick, during his salt march
· The cone bears a fine engraving of Gandhi’s signature
