From Mount Sinai to the Pyramid at Giza, Egypt is a stunning country seeping with rich ancient history. It is home to one of the Earth's oldest civilizations and located on the northeast corner of Africa. The new ASC Egyptian Series honors the great Kings and Queens that ruled throughout various dynasties of ancient Egypt.
Inspired by Egyptian designs and colors, the gold trims follow a pattern of ancient hieroglyphics, which decorate the barrel above the grip section and cap. Each hieroglyphic image is filled by hand with red enamel.
The material used for this pen is The Pen Family's new, in-house celluloid, that they have developed over the past three years. Several layers were used to deepen and enhance the color of the material that creates a unique pattern.
As with previous Bologna releases, the pen has a large volume, quick-acting pneumatic filling system.
The 14K gold medium nib features an ebonite feed that flexes to provide superb ink flow. The nib is engraved with the Eye of Horus and a the Great Pyramid at Giza. Everything about this design enables you to vary the line width by changing the amount of pressure on the nib as you write.
Be careful not to push too hard, as you can bend this flexible nib.
King Tutankhamun is a limited edition of 88 pens and is the last of four Egyptian Series, with predesessor Nefertiti and followed by Cleopatra, Ramses II and finally Tutankhamun. They each come with an exclusive material, different design and color trim.
