The Series 58 Indiana Jones Replica pen is a celebration of both quality craftsmanship and classic cinema. For our latest release, Conway Stewart has designed a faithful replica of the pen used by Sir Sean Connery in Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade.
In the iconic scene (skip to 1:53 to see the pen), Connery’s character Henry Jones Sr., uses the lever-fill mechanism to squirt ink in eye of a Nazi tank operator, to save both his life and his son’s, the titular Indiana Jones played by Harrison Ford.
A Faithful Recreation
The Series 58 Indiana Jones Replica features a lever-fill, a notable difference from the regular Series 58 which has a dual filling system. Every step has been taken to ensure the Series 58 Indiana Jones Replica is an accurate and fitting tribute to the original.
Production on this newest release began in late 2019, after an avid collector of replica props of the Indiana Jones films contacted Conway Stewart to say he had acquired a vintage Conway Stewart Series 58 Lever-fill pen which was featured in the iconic scene. The release of the Series 58 Indiana Jones Replica also coincides with the 30th anniversary of the Spielberg classic – what better time than now to start your own writing adventure!
At Conway Stewart we are proud of the heritage and quality that comes with owning one of our writing instruments – the Series 58 Indiana Jones Replica offers that same enchantment paired with classic pop culture history.
From Page to Screen
Conway Stewart’s latest release is another in a growing list of film collaborations. A Conway Stewart Churchill Classic Black Gold fountain pen was used in the Darkest Hour starring Gary Oldman who won an Oscar as Best Actor for his role as Winston Churchill. Also 20 Winston Classic Black Gold lever fill fountain pens and ballpoints, and a very special Marlborough fountain pen were supplied to the Kingsman :The Secret Agent – the first in the Kingsman film. They played an important role in the film, but more about this in future blogs. For the second film in the series Kingsman: The Golden Circle we supplied several modified Churchill Classic Black pens. Following the release of the film, a limited edition of replica Kingsman 2 pens were sold with the Kingsman logo on the top of the cap, and the words “Oxfords not brogues” engraved around the solid gold cap band, and this was voted one of the top fountain pens for 2020 by T3.
