Elysée Pen by S.T. Dupont

All the Presidents’ Pens. For decades, S.T. Dupont has been a pen of choice of France’s most influential men. People like René Coty and Jacques Chirac have made the writing instrument brand as historical as the pieces of paper that the former presidents signed.

S.T. Dupont is now giving back by dedicating one of its latest collections to France’s very own symbol of power. Elysée, as the pen is called, is an ode to the palace that has hosted the leading figures and more.

Like its namesake, Elysée is made to represent nobility. Each pen, for instance, has to pass 150 operations and 200 quality checks to reach its correct weight, earning Elysée its “The Weight of Excellence” title.

Moreover, the body of the pen is covered in solid brass and the nib is hand-polished in 14-carat gold. Last but not least, it’s finished by the special Dupont lacquer.
