Luxury Leisure: London-based luxury goods firm Alfred Dunhill has made a new addition to its range of meticulously designed, precious Limited Edition writing instruments: the Fighter Provenance Fountain Pen. Available only in small numbers, the Limited Edition series is an elegant expression of the Dunhill spirit of innovation as well as a tribute to old-world craftsmanship. The Fighter Provenance Fountain Pen is made using the original aluminum engine casing taken from the Rolls-Royce Merlin engine of the legendary World War II Spitfire MK1 fighter plane, hence the name.

Designed exclusively by Alfred Dunhill, the pen's details also reflect this iconic aircraft -- the bolt and rivet effects in the original aluminum; the tapered edges echoing the aerodynamics; a window feature on the side of the barrel displaying level of ink and even the pen clip design directly references the shape of the spitfire propeller. In fact, the cap of the Fighter Provenance Fountain Pen is created using plexiglass which is exactly the same material used for the bubble canopy of the late 1930's and early 1940's fighter planes. The pen nib is 18 carat gold with rhodium plating and the instrument is presented in a lacquered Alfred Dunhill display box.
