Pen Tech: Montblanc Is Reviving Its Historical Writing Instrument With 14 Carat Gold - Luxe Living

The black or ivory options are crafted from hard ebonite rubber and includes a rollerball and ballpoint options.

Originally made in the 1910s to 1920s, Montblanc created a writing technology achievement with the “Rouge et Noir Baby.” During this time, the pen’s design removed the need for dipping its nib into an inkwell. In the “Baby” range, which measured only six to eight centimeters, it became one of the world’s first leakproof and travel-sized pens.

As it’s been 110 years since the pioneering writing instrument was released, the German luxury goods company is giving it a revival. The fountain pens come in two colorways for a price range of $465 to $795 each. The black or ivory options are crafted from hard ebonite rubber and equipped with a 14-carat gold nib.

In tribute to their heritage, the Montblanc emblem is featured in the cap top. The collection includes a rollerball or ballpoint option for the instrument types depending on your preference.
