Ductus fountain pen will get "Stylus Icon Award 2009" - The readers had the choice – and decided on Ductus:
In the category of premium writing instruments in the price range 101$ to 500$, readers of the American "Stylus" magazine chose Pelikan's classically elegant Ductus as their favourite writing instrument.
All 2009 "Stylus" readers were able to take part in the annual vote on the award of the prestigious "Stylus Icon Award".
This modern Pelikan collection represents clear lines, hence the name Ductus, which is of Latin origin and translates as guidance or leadership. This series was developed for straightforward people with a unique style and fits with its flexible filling mechanism (large cartridge or converter) to the modern life-style.
The brass barrel is first lacquered, then turned into the right form, and then polished to a high sheen. Afterwards, the lines are created through engraving which is filled with precious metals -- for the silver color we take Palladium, for the golden color 24 carat gold is used. The last step for every Ductus writing instrument is a coating of clear lacquer which makes the surface not only smooth but also robust.
If you own a Ductus writing instrument, you’ll never lose sight of your goals.
