The House of Savoy is a royal dynasty that was established in 1003 in the historical Italian Savoy region. Through its junior branch of Savoy-Carignano, the House of Savoy led the Italian unification in 1860 and ruled the Kingdom of Italy until 1946. The unification of Italy, also known as the Risorgimento, was the 19th-century political and social movement that resulted in the consolidation of different states of the Italian Peninsula into a single state, the Kingdom of Italy. This historical event was chosen as an inspiration for the new aristocratic and elegant design of the Duragraph Savoy collection.
The Duragraph Savoy combines elegance, cutting-edge design, and functionality that uplift the writing experience. The perfectly-sized barrel is covered with blue high-quality textured leather that is soft to touch yet very durable. The leather is decorated with handmade, high-end cross-stitching along the barrel adding additional strength and complementing the overall look. The cap with brown resin accents completes the exquisite look. Lustrous chrome plating adorns the clip, band, and trim, enhancing the elegance of each pen. The cap top is embellished with the Conklin® Est. 1898 logo.
