The Conway Stewart Churchill Classic Black is now available as a lever fill to give it that truly vintage feel. This traditional method of filling fountains pens with ink was invented in 1908, and then developed by Conway Stewart who patented their own design in 1924.
The benefits of Lever Fill fountain pens were universally recognised as being quick to fill, and a lot less messy than some other filling mechanisms of the day. But as well as quick to fill, children of all ages soon discovered the lever fill could be used to squirt ink too!
Conway Stewart Lever Fill pens have been used in many films including Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade when Sean Connery’s character Henry Jones Senior uses the lever-fill mechanism to squirt ink in the eye of a Nazi tank operator and the famous words are spoken “Henry, The Pen. Don’t you see? The pen is mightier than the sword!”.
Then there is the wonderful scene in the Kingsman:The Secret Service when a Conway Stewart lever fill was used to bring sweet justice to Michael Caine’s character, Arthur.
So if you have always wanted a Lever Fill then here is your opportunity to own one.
The Classic Black is an iconic Conway Stewart material, and the wide 9ct gold cap ring is stamped with English hallmarks as proof of its quality and breeding!
Each fountain pen is housed in an original Conway Stewart black leatherette presentation box which doubles as an elegant desk display, and comes complete with Certificate of Authenticity, Conway Stewart User Guide and a special anti-tarnish polishing cloth to keep your pen in sparkling condition.
