BY ORDER OF THE PEAKY BLINDERS
With the 6th series of the hugely successful ‘Peaky Blinders’ TV series hitting the British screens at the end of February 2022, Conway Stewart was asked to launch a collection of limited edition pens based on the leading character; Tommy , Arthur and Polly.
when the story of the Shelby family begins, fountain pens were becoming more and more popular worldwide, and an important industry in the city of Birmingham where the Peaky Blinders series is based. It has been estimated that approximately 75% of the world’s annual production of pen nibs were manufactured in Birmingham from the late 19th century to the early 20th century. Today the Birmingham Pen Museum, in the Jewellery Quarter, is proud testament to the long history of pen and nib making in the industrial heartlands of Great Britain.
One of the most famous Conway Stewart pens today is named after Winston Churchill. Fans of the Peaky Blinders will know, Winston plays an important part in Tommy Shelby’s life. In fact the actual pen used by Tommy Shelby in the series looks very much like the Churchill Classic Black Silver on which this Limited Edition Thomas Shelby Pen is based.
