September 2023 – London: Parker presents the Sonnet Special Edition ‘Intrepid Journeys’ collection, featuring designs based on celebrated destinations from around the world. The collection appeals to curious individuals who harbour a sense of wanderlust, who seek to step back from the routine distractions of daily life and who aspire to travel and explore the beauty of the natural world.
The Sonnet Special Edition ‘Intrepid Journeys’ collection exudes contemporary, yet timeless elegance, with an inspirational new design launched every year, for years to come.
For 2023, we are delighted to introduce the Mt. Fuji Edition, the first in this global journey of discovery, reflecting the majesty of Japan's iconic mountain and of hiking the famous Yoshida trail.
The sophisticated design of the Mt. Fuji Special Edition pen allows our imagination and aspirations to climb to a higher level, elevating our view of the world and awakening our desire to expand our horizons.
With time-honoured Parker craftmanship and expertise, the Mt. Fuji Special Edition is hand-assembled from 22 individual pieces with meticulous attention to detail. Each pen features an 18k solid gold nib with a rhodium finish and a design inspired by the world map. The brushed steel shell is accented with pink gold trims, and the brass barrel is finished in a new blue lacquer.
The laser-etched design on the sterling silver and palladium-coated cap features vertical lines representing the wooden walking sticks that can be stamped at each mountain station passed en route to the summit, and displays the legendary name of Mt. Fuji and its elevation, evoking the spirit of audacious adventure. Intricate engravings, inspired by the 5th Station, a popular starting point, and the Torii Gate close to the summit at its end, take us on a journey to Mt. Fuji’s peak.
The Mt. Fuji Special Edition pen makes the perfect gift to a loved one and comes elegantly packaged in a prestige gift box.
