|Onoto Magna Classic Black Chasing Fountain Pen|
Hold the Magna Classic and you will marvel at its perfect balance and how tactile it feels – it is also one of the most robust pens on the market today, thanks to its durable, high density acrylic composition.
Based on the style and shape of one of the most famous fountain pens ever made – the Onoto Magna of 1937 which is still acclaimed by many as the best fountain pen ever made – this Magna Classic has 3 sterling silver cap bands with the famous Onoto Chevron clip in silver.
The distinctive Onoto logo is carved into the cap button in silver with a frosted background, making it instantly recognisable, and a sterling silver barrel button finishes the overall luxury feel.
Put ‘pen to paper’ and you’ll be amazed at the smoothness of the exclusive Onoto #7 nib in 18 ct gold. The nibs are available in standard line widths, special nibs like italic, stub or oblique can be ground to your exact specification by one of the UK's leading nib-masters at a slightly higher price. When you choose a special nib below, we will contact you for the specifications. The pen uses standard international cartridges or the supplied converter.
Like all modern Onoto pens, the pen comes with a lifetime guarantee.

Onoto pens can be personalised in many ways and are therefore often made to order. Since the pens are especially made for you, please allow for a two to four weeks delivery time. We would gladly discuss the possibilities of personalisation of the pen. If in stock, we can of course ship your pen immediately without personlisation.
In the history of writing instruments, Onoto stands proud as a name synonymous with innovation and quality. Since its foundation in 1905, Onoto fountain pens have been associated with three specific qualities: firstly, its essential Britishness; secondly, its manufacturing ingenuity and thirdly, its global marketing success.
Onoto became one of the most famous British fountain pen brands in the world, and, records show Onoto pens were used by Winston Churchill, Field Marshal Haig, Natsume Soseki (Japanese writer), Florence Nightingale, and Queen Mary to name just a few.
