Designed and made in England by The Onoto Pen Company, one of the country’s oldest fountain pen manufacturers, these pens are now
available exclusively to Cambridge alumni around the world.
This classically styled fountain pen is made from high density black acrylic material with gold-plated fittings.
The University of Cambridge crest is gold-plated in perfect detail on the top of the pen cap and you can have your college crest embedded into the end of
the barrel in full colour. You can also have your year of graduation added next to the words "University of Cambridge" which are engraved around the wide gold-plated
Established in England in 1905 by Thomas De La Rue, the postage stamp and banknote printers, Onoto pens were innovative, easy to fill, and guaranteed not
to leak. Onoto became one of the most famous British fountain pen manufacturers of the last century when Onoto pens were sold around the globe.
Hold the Cambridge Black Acrylic Alumni pen and you will marvel at its perfect balance and how tactile it feels. It is one of the most
robust pens on the market today, thanks to its durable, high density acrylic composition.
Onoto nibs – Probably the best on the market
Each Black Acrylic Alumni pen is fitted with a size 7 Onoto nib made famous by the Onoto Magna of the 1930s, considered by many as one
of the finest fountain pens ever produced. Put ‘pen to paper’ and you’ll be amazed at its smoothness. 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.
Prefer a Rollerball?
The Cambridge Alumni pens are available as a Rollerball or Fineliner at no extra cost. Why not purchase a fountain pen and a
rollerball as companion pens?
Like all modern Onoto pens, the Cambridge Black Acrylic Alumni pen 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.*

Made in England
The Cambridge Alumni range is entirely hand-crafted in England and each pen bears the words:
ONOTO THE PEN
Made in England
engraved on the barrel just like many of the vintage Onoto pens of the last century when famous patrons like Sir Winston Churchill, Ernest Shackleton,
Natsume Soseki and Field Marshall Haig relied on their Onoto pens to communicate great words of wisdom.
Superb Presentation Box and Certificate of Authenticity
The Cambridge Black Acrylic Alumni pen is produced in a limited edition of 800. Each one comes with an exclusive University of Cambridge
Presentation Box and a signed Certificate of Authenticity together with a University history booklet and blotter. A cleaning cloth to keep your pen in tip-top
condition, a leaflet on “How to care for your Fountain Pen” and a booklet on English hallmarks to explain the history of these stamps of quality complete
the package. Each pen is hallmarked on the gold-plated sterling silver cap band.
