Monteverde USA Trees of the World fountain pens pay homage to the mystical and majestic trees of the world - namely the Giant Sequoia, Avenue of the Baobabs, and Dragon Tree. Trees have contributed to our existence since the beginning of humankind and have long signified natural beauty, resilience, balance, longevity, and connection to Earth. In addition to cleaning the water we drink and helping create the air we breathe, trees have also sparked creativity and imagination in poetry, stories, and art throughout history.
Dragon Tree: The Socotra Dragon Tree or Dragon Blood Tree is a Dragon Tree native to the Socotra archipelago, governed by the Republic of Yemen and located by the Arabian Sea. It has a unique appearance, with an upturned, densely-packed crown resembling the shape of an umbrella. This evergreen species is named after its dark red adhesive resin, which is known as "dragon's blood." Monteverde USA Dragon Tree features distinctive red and blue resin designs, unified to create unique pattern combinations. Red signifies "Dragon Blood" resin and blue for the vast skyline the towering trees seem to reach. A solid walnut ring with polished chrome accents and a classic pen clip adorn the cap. The barrel is tastefully engraved with the Monteverde USA and Trees of the World logos.
The Trees of the World fountain pens are equipped with stainless steel JoWo #6 nibs engraved with the Monteverde USA logo. They use standard international size ink cartridges or converters (one is included with each pen) and are available in varying nib sizes. Pens are packaged in the classic Monteverde pen box with a custom graphic sleeve designed to honor the trees of the world.
