Montblanc recently brought out a limited edition pen in memory of Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi, the father f the Indian nation. He is widely believed to be the proponent of Ahinsa, which is the theory of non violence through which he is said to have helped Indians achieve their freedom.
The Montblanc pen comes with Gandhi’s image etched on the nib and the pen itself is carved out of a 18 carat white gold material. The image is engraved with a 18 carat yellow gold wire. The limited edition pens cost $25,000 and many Gandhi followers did not like the idea of Gandhi’s image being etched on a luxurious pen as he was against such “worldly pleasures”.
Nevertheless, Montblanc certainly will strike a chord with collectors and memorabilia hunters and they would certainly pay the moolah to get themselves a pen like this. You never know, a businessman from India might just offer a million bucks after two years of you buy this pen from Montblanc, as such is the craze for Gandhi related merchandize in that country!
