The Montblanc Writers Edition Sir Arthur Conan Doyle Limited Edition is dedicated to one of the most renowned crime novelists and creator of the famous consulting detective Sherlock Holmes. Made from blue-gray precious resin, the edition evokes the sinister, foggy atmosphere of London, where Sherlock Holmes usually solves his cases. The cap and barrel of this edition are decorated with a plaid pattern in reference to Holmes' coat, as well as parts of a historic London city map. The initials JB are found beneath the PVD-coated, magnifying glass-shaped clip in tribute to Joseph Bell: the very real man behind the Sherlock Holmes character. The Montblanc emblem in precious resin crowns the cap of the edition. The handcrafted Au 750 solid gold nib is engraved depicting flying dinosaurs from The Lost World around the portrait of the father of Professor Challenger and Sherlock Holmes.
