Miles Davis Limited Edition 1926 Fountain pen

This Great Characters Edition honours one of the most revolutionary and influential jazz musicians of all time – Miles Dewey Davis. He was not only a trumpeter with an outstanding sound but a pioneer in virtually every phase of the evolution of post-WWII American jazz, from cool jazz up to the rock-jazz-funk fusion that finally got him inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame. The overall shape of the Limited Edition 1926 reflects the trumpet, emphasised through the trumpet finger buttons on the clip. The unique refined engraving on the barrel is inspired by the major phases of evolution in post-WWII American Jazz, which Miles Davis influenced. The blue cone recalls "Kind of Blue", the greatest jazz album of all time. The shape of the cone stems from the special "Heim" mouthpiece he used to play. The nib is engraved with his silhouette and the limitation of 1926 pieces is based on his year of birth.
