Montblanc Unveils a New Line of Miles Davis Pens … and (Kind of) Blue Ink

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.

And what’s a pen with­out ink? It’s blue, of course. Get a close up view of that here.

    This reads exact­ly like a paid adver­tise­ment, but there is no obvi­ous indi­ca­tion that it’s an ad. It’s pre­sent­ed as real con­tent, but one with a BIN but­ton.

    This is a new low.
