The Onoto Excel in Black acrylic

British-made slimline luxury fountain pen with classic style
An exciting new Onoto model designed for those who prefer their pens to be smaller and slimmer than many in our range.

Limited edition of 50 - This edition is now SOLD OUT

Onoto Excel
A pen with panache
The Excel in black acrylic with sterling silver fittings is the first in an entirely new range of Onoto pens and as such, is sure to be in demand from collectors around the world.

Smaller and slightly slimmer than many of the other models in our range which are all based on the 1937 Magna, the Excel still retains the classic look of the 1920s and 30s, and is certainly a pen with panache!

Made from rich black acrylic and complemented by a broad sterling silver cap band and combined hooded cap-end and clip, it’s highly distinctive and very elegant. Hold the Excel and you will feel the same perfect balance that comes with all Onoto fountain pens.

Onoto – a marque of excellence
The distinctive sterling silver cap-end is engraved with ‘Onoto England’ while the barrel is engraved with ‘Onoto THE Pen’ the distinctive and iconic marketing slogan first used in 1910 which set Onoto apart as a brand and gave it market leadership in the UK and around the world for many years. A sterling silver 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 wonderful Onoto #3 nib in 18 carat gold. It is 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 Onoto #3 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 Onoto Excel engraved with a name or initials around the sterling silver cap band for that touch of exclusivity at a modest extra cost.
