Montblanc Franz Kafka limited edition fountain pen. The design of the Writers Edition Franz Kafka is not only reminiscent of the simple and yet artful style of its eponym, but also pays tribute to Kafka's most famous work: "The Metamorphosis". In the fascinating change from square to round in the writing instrument's form, the metamorphosis described in Kafka's story has found its equivalent. Top, clip and rings made of 925 sterling silver offer a thrilling contrast to the dark red translucent aura of the barrel. A further reference to "The Metamorphosis" is on the rhodium-plated 18-karat gold nib: a finely engraved cockroach.
