All it takes is a particular customer request to get us thinking. After all, it’s the customers who buy and use the pens, so they should know what they want! One client asked for something that was both tiny and handy to use, genuinely small enough for any pocket or purse, but which behaved and felt like a full-sized writing instrument when in use. So we came up with GNOMO.
Italian for, yes, “gnome”, the new GNOMO is a retractable fountain pen that measures only 8cm – that’s a teensy-weensy 31⁄4 in – when closed! The mechanism is, if we say so ourselves, ingenious.
By twisting it outward, turning the nib junction the other way around and screwing it back into the barrel, you have a full-size, fully-functional, feverishly fantastic, fabulously fun fountain pen!
GNOMO is made with a main barrel of celluloid offered in three different colours: Yellow, Red and Charcoal Black.
All metal fittings are made of Sterling Silver, personalised with a tweed laser-carving, which adds a cool, vintage look to the pen.
To keep it slim and trim, GNOMO is designed without a signature clip, to stay faithful to the notion of maximum of comfort and hindrances. The fountain pen holds a single ink cartridge, and the nib
is made in 18k Gold.
Strictly available as a Limited Edition of only 1000 units each of the three stunning celluloid colours, every GNOMO pen comes in charming matchbox-like wooden packaging – including a cuddly, furry pen-pouch for protection.
