The Fire Head collection pays tribute to Simon Tissot Dupont who founded the company in 1872. It is with great pride that S.T. Dupont preserves the know-how of its master craftsmen, who are heirs to skills passed down from generation to generation. In the Fire Head collection, S.T. Dupont combines the skills of the lacquerer with the expertise of the goldsmith.
The Fire Head under Lacquer collection includes the exceptional Line D fountain pen with 14K rhodium-plated gold nib engraved with the blazon, capped rollerball, twist ball pen and a Ligne 2 lighter, all combining the same ancient skills in a way that creates something new. Each item is hand-polished and plated with precious palladium finish and patterned with an homage to 1952’s era-defining Diamond Head design. With six triangular facets, the Fire Head guilloche pattern is velvet on the hand, contrasting superbly with its geometrical precision. S.T. Dupont’s artisans add layers of blue natural lacquer to the patterned guilloche surface in a months-long process involving many applications and polishing to impart depth and mystery to each finish. The Line D series has been newly remodeled with a bold blazon on the clip, enhanced Dupont ‘D’ in the crown and a perfectly balanced shape for exceptional writing – for present and future generations. The fountain pen uses cartridges or fills from a bottle of ink using the converter.
