Based on the Conway Stewart Churchill design, Steinway has collaborated with Conway Stewart to create a Limited Edition Fountain Pen. I first saw this pen while surfing the internet looking at prices for Steinway pianos. As I am sure you all know, Steinway makes top of the line pianos. Steinway also happens to be a sponsor of the School of Music I attend at the University of Utah.

Once I laid eyes on the Steinway, I knew I had to have it. The pen has a great size, comparable with a MB 149. Posting this pen would make the pen a very long 7 inches. I personally prefer a non-posted pen to write with. The Steinway badging is what drew me to this pen, it’s what separates this pen from any other Churchill.

This pen is bottle fill only via a lever filler. You can get a full 14 drops on ink with each refill, a good amount. Writing is very smooth. I currently have a Medium, 1.1, Italic nib. Like I said, it is smooth, however my only grip is there is not very much line variation, even when holding the nib at a 45 degree angle. I assume that down the road this pen will make a visit to Pendemonium for a nib makeover.

The Churchill is a great all around pen, substantial size, not too heavy, great filling mechanism, and beautiful design. Add on top of that Steinway badging and as Emeril Lagasse would say, you've just "kicked it up a notch"....BAM!!!!

Full recommendation on this one!

Nice looking pen! I like the badge, too, although it would be meaningless for someone like me, as I am not a musical person. Looks great, though - and look at that box! Quite a presentation. :)

What a beautiful pen. The glossy black finish is so reminiscent of a Steinway's lacquer - and the lyre is the perfect finishing touch. I'm highly partial to plain black and gold pens ; seems to me like the equivalent of a dinner jacket (US: tuxedo ;) ), unfailingly elegant. This is one of the nicest I've ever seen.

I would love to have a pen with 007 - for obvious reasons.

Good work Bryan. Nice pictures and review.

Is it my computer or is the badge on the top of the pen sort of jaggedy? I guess I owuld expect a nice smooth engraving.

Kurt,

Sorry I didn't get back to you sooner on this, I just now noticed your question today. Anyway, no it not your computer, it is a "jaggedy" engraving. It would have been nicer to have a Laser engraving. I don't know if CS was being stylistic or cheap. Either way, the jaggedy edges are only noticable up close.

What an impressive looking pen. I'm thinking about a Churchill with a broad italic and found your review very helpful.
