The Guilloche writing instruments made of precious resin are distinguished by a special process. Each one is engraved individually using a method otherwise reserved for jewelry or silver accessories. The barrel is then hand-lacquered and repeatedly polished.The result is a unique and most interesting surface texture. No two writing implements are identical: each is an individual example of the craftsman’s art.
- Cartridge/converter system
- Hand-made 18-carat gold nib, rhodium plated, "run in" by hand
- Manufacturing process involves over a hundred steps, most of them carried out by hand
- Available nib widths are M (medium), F (fine), EF (extra fine), B (broad), OM (medium/ left slent) and OB (broad/ left slent)
The French word chevron refers to a V shape or zigzag pattern, a characteristic detail of this series: the filigree herringbone pattern engraved in the special precious resin material of these writing implements is both discreet and appealing. The black surface has been painstakingly polished to a high gloss, contrasting with the matt engraving to produce an exciting shimmer that continually takes on a new character depending on the angle of the incident light.
