Gold-plated solid silver pen, The Aviator is for every aircraft enthusiast
Most of the things we come across in our daily lives are an inspiration of something or the other, therefore, aviation inspired pens are no surprise too. We’ve seen planes and aircraft inspired pens previously and The Aviator – inspired by RJ Mitchell’s Supermarine S6B (model for the Spitfire and fast enough to win the Schneider Trophy in 1931) is no different. Based on the Submarine S6B, The Aviator by Onoto in England is made in solid sterling silver and has a 23ct gold platting to add exuberance to its make.
The limited edition Aviator is a true touch of luxury, so if you want a pen as a gift for an aviation enthusiast or for your own flying desk, this perfectly balanced pen is what you should not cross by, but be quick only 200 of these pens are made. The Aviator has a classy 18 carat gold nib, which has a delightful flow on paper to suit all types of handwriting (customized nibs to suit your writing style are also available).
Weighing in at about 95 grams, The Aviator priced at $2250, is slightly on the heavier side for a pen. But drenched in luxury, the pen comes with a lifetime guarantee and is accompanied by Onoto Presentation Box, signed Certificate of Authenticity, Onoto blotter and a cleaning cloth and Onoto History booklet and care instruction booklet.
