Got spare cash burning a hole in your pocket? An urge to commodify your favorite jazz artist? The need for an admittedly beautiful writing instrument? All of the above, you say? Good, because Montblanc recently unveiled a new line of Miles Davis pens. They've got the Miles Davis ballpoint pen, fountain pen, and roller pen. But surely the pièce de résistance is the Miles Davis Limited Edition 1926 Fountain Pen, which "tells the story of one of the greatest jazz personalities." "The surface of the cap and barrel is engraved with symbolic motifs that refer to the five major jazz periods he helped to create." What's more, "a star, set with a diamond, is engraved on the barrel, and Miles Davis’s famous album Kind of Blue is reflected in the blue color on the cone." Swank.
