The S.T. Dupont 'Line D' Large pen has undergone recent modifications, featuring a fresh and striking emblem on the articulated clip, an improved Dupont 'D' on the cap's crown, and a flawlessly balanced design to enhance the writing experience. The pen cap securely fastens with Dupont's signature 'cling,' and it boasts a grooved grip section for an outstanding writing sensation.
S.T. Dupont's skilled craftsmen apply numerous layers of natural lacquer to the engraved pen in a meticulous, month-long procedure that includes multiple applications and polishing to create depth and an aura of mystery for each finish. The engraved guilloche pattern refracts light through the overlay of natural lacquer, resulting in a breathtaking three-dimensional array of colors. This results in a collection of exquisite, hand-lacquered writing instruments of remarkable beauty.
S.T. Dupont is celebrated worldwide for producing high-quality, exquisitely designed writing instruments, and the new 'Fire-head' guilloche is no exception, showcasing one of S.T. Dupont's most cherished and longstanding craftsmanship techniques, known as 'guilloche under lacquer.'
S.T. Dupont's iconic 'Fire-head' guilloche pattern pays homage to the renowned 'Louvre' museum in Paris, France, famous for its glass 'pyramid' entrance, which serves as the source of design inspiration.
S.T. Dupont's engineers meticulously engrave a series of 'pyramids' throughout the pen's barrel and cap using an 'engine turning' process that impresses highly precise and intricate geometric patterns into the underlying material.
