The RED Signature fountain pen features brushed palladium nickel coating on a metal pen. The Montblanc logo is engraved in the barrel and cap top. The section and feed are of red resin and the nib is engraved with (Montblanc) RED (this is different from what the 1st picture above shows). In partnership with Marc Newson, Montblanc introduces (Montblanc M)RED, designed to support (RED)’s fight to end AIDS. Every item purchased from the (Montblanc M)RED pen collection will contribute €5 to the Global Fund to support HIV/AIDS programs, which helps prevent HIV+ mothers from passing the virus to their babies. Made of red precious resin, handpicked by Marc Newson, the writing instrument’s fluid lines flow gently into one another. Featuring a magnetic cap closure with alignment of cap to barrel (including snap mechanism) as well as an additional 'plateau' magnet for the cap to sit on when writing. The pens are fitted with a 14 carat gold nib and use a cartridge for filling mechanism.
