|Crafted from solid sterling silver
Hold this Magna Classic and you know you are holding quality of the highest order. Weighing nearly 90grams of sterling silver, and yet the balance is perfect when writing*. The Barleycorn engine turning on the barrel and cap is so tactile that you will not want to put the pen down.
*(On all our precious metal pens, the cap is designed not to be posted onto the barrel when writing)
Based on the style and shape of one of the most famous fountain pens ever made – the Onoto Magna of 1937 which is still acclaimed by many as the Best fountain pen ever made - this Magna Classic has 3 gold-plated sterling silver cap bands with the famous Onoto Chevron clip in gold plated silver.
Onoto The Pen
The Magna Classic Sterling Silver is engraved with ‘ONOTO THE PEN Made in England’ on the barrel to connect with the heritage of Onoto, however this pen can be ordered without this engraving. Instead a blank cartouche on the barrel allows for that special personal engraving of several appreciative words. See above photo to see both examples.
Onoto nibs – Probably the Best on the market
Put ‘pen to paper’ and you’ll be amazed at the smoothness of the exclusive 18ct gold Onoto #7 nib available in broad, fine or medium widths to suit your handwriting style.
Custom nibs also available
And if you prefer to use a special nib – an italic, stub or oblique, for example – you can have the 18ct gold nib ground to your exact specification by one of the UK’s leading nib-masters. Just complete your requirements in the shopping cart.
And for that extra touch…
Whether for yourself or as a gift, you can have the Magna Classic engraved with a name or initials for that touch of exclusivity at a modest extra cost.
Like all modern Onoto pens, the Magna Classic comes with a lifetime guarantee. If there’s ever a problem with your pen, just return it to us and we’ll repair it for you free of charge.*
