New Montblanc Aviator

Montblanc has launched the Le Petit Prince collection in celebration; the second capsule of this limited collection honours the Little Prince and the Pilot. This marks the beginning of one of the most extraordinary mentoring relationships in literary history.  Le Petit Prince is the beloved children’s book by Antoine de Saint-Exupery. It appeals to children as a whimsical adventure, while adults are transfixed by the underlying themes of love, loss and human nature.

Personalise your pen

Show them how much you care with a personal engraved message on their new favourite writing instrument. Whether you simply add a name or a personal message, engraving adds that finishing touch to a perfect gift.  Engraving is not only popular for birthday or Christmas gifts, but also as part of a retirement leaving gift or a corporate gift from employers to loyal staff or special clients.

The Best Pen To Improve Handwriting

Once upon a time, handwriting was a key skill taught largely during the early years of primary school education. Good penmanship was something to take pride in and there were plenty of opportunities to practise and improve. 

Caring for your fountain pen

One of the most frequent repair questions we get asked is how to fix a broken a nib. We often find the issue is the fountain pen simply needs a good clean, yet customers are often nervous of doing this themselves. Hopefully with our step by step cleaning guide this will make the job seem less daunting.
