S.T.Dupont Classic Fountain Pen Gold filled Cap & Barrel
In 1973, S.T. Dupont began producing luxury ballpoint pens. The first one released by the company was called the "Classique," and Dupont's artisans made the pen from solid silver. Collectors of fine products purchased the writing units since they were useable and durable. Furthermore, early Dupont pens were stylish and unique, which is a tradition that the company has maintained.
Each pen features an identification number that the company etches into the writing device's clip. In addition, the company's crafters hand lacquer each unit with a sturdy solution that comes from the Rhus Vernicifera tree's sap. A Dupont pen includes hours of craftsmanship as artisans apply several lacquer layers to each pen. Consequently, each writing instrument will feel silky smooth when the owner writes with it.
Dupont pens include precious metals such as gold, platinum and palladium. In addition, the company completes an extensive amount of quality testing and puts each writing device through 200 steps before it introduces the pen to the market.
