S.T. Dupont Line D Large Velvet Fire-head Guilloche Rollerball Pen - Graphite Grey
The S.T. Dupont ‘Line D’ Large pen has been recently remodeled with a new, bold blazon on the articulated clip, an enhanced Dupont 'D' in the crown of the cap and a perfectly balanced shape for exceptional writing. The pen cap closes with Dupont's iconic 'cling' and features a fluted grip section for a superb writing experience.
S.T. Dupont's artisans then add layers of natural lacquer to the engraved pen in a month's long process involving many applications and polishing to impart depth and mystery to each finish. The engraved guilloche reflects light through the overlay of natural lacquer, creating a spectacular three dimensional display of color. The result is a collection of precious, hand lacquered writing instruments of exceptional beauty.
S.T. Dupont is renowned worldwide for crafting exceptional writing instruments of superior quality and design. The new ‘Fire-head’ guilloche is no exception and demonstrates one of S.T. Dupont’s oldest and most treasured crafting techniques 'guilloche under lacquer'.
S.T. Dupont’s iconic ‘Fire-head’ guilloche pays tribute to the much celebrated ‘Louvre’ museum in Paris, France, famed for its glass ‘pyramid’ entrance, which serves as the design inspiration.
S.T. Dupont engineers engrave a series of ‘pyramids’ throughout the barrel and cap of each pen using an ‘engine turning’ process that engraves very precise and intricate geometric patterns into an underlying material.
