Specially designed by the Onoto Pen Company for the University, these pens are produced in strictly limited numbers; order one now to secure a piece of history.
All pens have the University of Cambridge crest on the top of the pen cap, and the words “800 years 1209~2009” engraved around a sterling silver band plated in 23ct gold. As an option you can have your college crest produced in superb colour and encased in clear acrylic embedded into the end of the barrel of the pen. Each pen is fitted with the size 7 Onoto nib made famous by the Onoto Magna in 1930’s, considered by many as one of the finest fountain pens ever produced. Started in 1905, Onoto pens have been used by many well-known people over the last 100 years including Winston Churchill, Field Marshall Haig, Florence Nightingale, Edgar Wallace and Natsume Soseki, the foremost Japanese novelist of the Meiji Era.
