  • Description

The Montblanc company is a German company that was founded in the early 1900's under a different name, then became Montblanc in 1910. According to 'The Montblanc Diary and Collector's Guide' written by Jens Rosler, the first pens with the white star on the cap were produced in 1914, long before Hitler's rise to power. The white star represents the snow-capped mountain Montblanc which was also, '..black at the bottom, white at the top and the greatest among its peers.' It does resemble a Star of David, but we have found no evidence that the resemblance is intentional.

Mahatma Gandhi was a major political and spiritual leader of India and the Indian independence movement. The design pays tribute to his life and achievements. The top of the cap and cone are inspired by the spindle which Gandhi used to spin cotton – one of the symbols of Indian independence. The colour white is a reference to truth and peace, while the Mandarin garnet represents the orange colour that is part of the Indian flag. The nib shows an image of Mahatma Gandhi, walking with a stick. In addition, the limitation of the Mahatma Gandhi Limited Edition 3000 is symbolic for the masses of people who followed him during his fight for independence.

As a reference this Edition released in 2009 is limited to 3,000 piston fountain pens and 3,000 rollerballs.
