Contemporary, refined and tactile – another
If you are looking for an elegant writing pen; a pen that has some ‘presence’ and is perfectly balanced, and will give you hours of smooth writing pleasure, then the Magna 261 has the pedigree to suit.
The first chased acrylic Onoto for more than 50 years
Following in the long tradition of excellent Onoto pens, this contemporary addition to the range has a proud heritage. In 1909, as Onoto started to flex its considerable marketing muscles around the globe, the United States was seen as a key market. So it was little surprise when De La Rue, then owners of the Onoto brand, decided to set up a US subsidiary in New York to manufacture, market and sell Onoto pens.
The offices were soon established at 261 Broadway, New York and now, to celebrate that occasion 100 years ago, the Onoto Magna 261 Centenary Edition has been issued.
Crafted entirely in England from high density black acrylic, the ‘261’ features a chased pattern on the barrel and cap like the original classic Magnas of the 1930s. This is the first chased Onoto acrylic pen for over 50 years and like its illustrious predecessors the unique pattern gives the pen a striking appearance that distinguishes it from the crowd.
Just like most vintage Onoto pens, the barrel is engraved with ‘ONOTO THE PEN Made in England’, and on the opposite side of the barrel is a space for personalising the pen with your name or initials.
The cap is finished with a wide gold-plated sterling silver band which is hall-marked and the “261” comes with a booklet explaining British hall-marks. The top of the cap has the famous Onoto cipher which is gold plated to match the instantly recognisable Onoto clip. At the end of the barrel is the number “261” in black and gold encased in a special convex acrylic.
Based on the design of the 1937 Magna, the ‘261’ has a character all of its own... contemporary, refined and tactile... with silky smooth writing from the large two-tone gold plated Onoto size 7 nib. Indeed, another classic Onoto!
Cherished for years to come
If you are looking for an ‘every-day’ writing pen to add to your collection, or a gift that will be used and cherished for years to come, the Magna 261 has no equal.
