- Product Details
The Onoto Aviator Sterling Silver Pen is a tribute by Onoto to the winner of the third Schneider Trophy race, the Supermarine S6B. Milled in solid sterling silver, this pen is a wonderfully luxurious writing instrument to behold, as sleek and beautiful as the fuselage of the aircraft it commemorates.
The silver barrel of the Onoto Aviator is fluted to the design of the S6B, which in the aircraft helped with airflow smoothing, but which in the pen helps with the grip and lightens the barrel without compromising its strength. The smooth end hood carries the sterling silver hallmarks, and the end of the barrel is stamped with the limited-edition number. As with all of their pens, the Onoto Aviator Sterling Silver Pen carries the words "ONOTO the PEN" and "Made in England" on its barrel.
The cap of the Onoto Aviator Sterling Silver Pen has 23-carat gold plated fittings, comprising the cap button that features the whirling propellor of the S6B, and the characteristic Onoto clip bearing their cipher and the distinctive triple-chevron pattern that harks back to Onoto's 1930s pens.
The nib fitted to the Onoto Aviator Sterling Silver Pen is their wonderful number 7 in 18 carat gold, in Fine, Medium, or Broad, but if you choose "Modified Nib", then Onoto will hand-make you almost any imaginable nib. Write Here will contact you if you choose the modified nib option to determine your requirements.
This pen can also be supplied with a rollerball conversion kit in sterling silver. This is in addition to the fountain pen nib, allowing to change your pen to a rollerball simply by unscrewing one tip from the barrel (as you would to replace the cartridge) and screwing in the other.
We at Write Here are pleased to make the Onoto Aviator Sterling Silver Pen available for sale online in the UK and abroad, to admirers of British aviation at its finest.
This pen is one of a limited edition of only 200.
