Limited Edition "Fire"
The third fountain pen in the series "Achievements of Civilisation" celebrates the
art of taming fire. The two previous models were "Evolution of Script" (2007) and
"Calculation of Times" (2008).
The limited edition "Fire" is dedicated to this ability and is restricted to 500
writing instruments worldwide. It was launched in August 2010.
The most important motif is the bowl filled with fire. History tells us that in
former times, our ancestors had to wait for lightning to strike before they could
'catch' the flames. They filled skulls with oil in order to preserve the special
flames that gave warmth, kept wild beasts at bay and helped to prepare food. Today,
fire is just a match away, but to celebrate this achievement of civilisation,the
bowl of fire is depicted on the clip, the especially created nib, and the cap.
