Marc Newson and Montblanc have debuted a red edition of their Montblanc M pen. The (Montblanc M) RED includes a rollerball pen, a fountain pen and a ballpoint pen as well as a sketchbook and a set of cufflinks all flaunting that bold red hue. This collection was created specially to support (RED) – a nonprofit organization that partners with brands to raise money to fight HIV / AIDS in Africa through the Global Fund. According to Montblanc’s website -every item purchased from the (Montblanc M) RED writing instrument 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.
The three pens are attractive picks made of red precious resin that was handpicked by Marc Newson. They each feature a magnetic cap closure and a snap mechanism as well as an additional ‘plateau’ magnet for the cap to sit on back while writing. The fountain pen is fitted with a hand-crafted 14 K gold nib which has been rhodium-coated with ruthenium-coated inlay.
The fountain pen is priced at $575 while the ballpoint and rollerball pens cost $410. The sketchbook costs $130 while the red cufflinks will set you back by $245. All the items can be purchased though the brand’s website.
