Magna Classic Tortoiseshell

British-made luxury fountain pen with classic style - SOLD OUT
This distinctive fountain pen in beautiful tortoiseshell is complemented by gold-plated sterling silver fittings and limited to an edition of 100 pens only.  

The Onoto Magna Classic Tortoiseshell pen

Perfect balance and feel

Hold the Magna Classic Tortoiseshell and you will marvel at its perfect balance and its elegant styling. Made from beautiful tortoiseshell acrylic and complemented by gold-plated sterling silver rings, it provides a spectacular addition to the Magna Classic range. The Tortoiseshell is being issued in a strictly limited edition of only 100 pens, so early reservation is essential.

Famous Heritage

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 three gold-plated sterling silver cap bands and the famous gold plated Onoto Chevron clip.

The distinctive Onoto logo is carved into the gold-plated cap button with a frosted background, making it instantly recognisable. A gold-plated barrel button with the edition number engraved into it finishes the overall luxury feel..

Onoto nibs – Probably the Best on the market

Put ‘pen to paper’ and you’ll be amazed at the smoothness of the exclusive Onoto #7 nib. You can select either the gold-plated SS version (as standard) or the 18 carat gold version for that extra-luxury feel. Both are 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 either our standard SS or 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 Tortoiseshell engraved with a name or initials for that touch of exclusivity at a modest extra cost.

Lifetime Guarantee

Like all modern Onoto pens, the Magna Classic Tortoiseshell 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.*
