Elite Writers

Handmade in California on specialized lathes by skilled artisans, every Lanier pen is crafted from individually-selected pieces of exotic hardwoods, making each one unique. Designed with mid-century modern style in mind, the Classic Elite accepts international standard converters and cartridges. We can’t say which one, but these pens were so admired by a recent US President that he commissioned a special order of 100 to give as gifts for a special occasion.

Note: At check-out, you can select a color from Blue, Red, Purple, Turquoise, or Yellow. The standard nib size is Medium, but you can select Fine or Broad (+ $25). As these pens will be made to order, this drop is limited to a maximum of 60 units, and pens will be shipped weekly in batches of 10, beginning with the first people to join the drop; Estimated Shipping Dates are listed below.

Respect Your Elders

The Classic Elite’s barrel is made from pale Box Elder, stained with color, and sealed with a clear coat that will keep it looking great for years to come. Fitted with gunmetal and 22-karat gold-plated hardware and a gold-plated stainless steel nib that's made in Germany by JoWo, each pen is rigorously tested before leaving the facility to make sure it writes smooth straight out from the moment you pick it up out of the rosewood gift box. Once you remove the screw-off cap, you can securely post it to the matching threading on the opposite end.
