Davidoff Year Of The Snake Limited Edition

Recommended Posts

Dear All,

 

I came across this pen today and was wondering if anyone had any information about it. I searched FPN as usual, and at most, I could only find that it was likely to have been made by Omas, though I am uncertain. And if anyone is more familiar and can tell me about authenticity cues or if the pen is fake, please do let me know.

 

Here's a link to the flyer: https://www.stylo.ca/images/produits/pdf/en_20136.pdf

 

Here's the actual pen that I am looking at:

I'm uncertain how much the price of this pen is on the market. The flyer says 3360 CHF, which if it is Swiss Francs, would be $3342 USD.

Looks like Caran d'Ache Le man but I could be completely wrong. No I have not come across this one before.

Thanks for the reply Mastiff. Yes, indeed I couldn't find any info about it at all. But I know that Davidoff commissions their pens, so it's got to be some other company making it. Makes me real curious who.

It says German made which eliminates Montegrappa, Caran d'Ache and St Dupont as well as the Asian connections.

You're right! I didn't even catch that! Hmm German made... How likely is it that Pelikan or Montblanc would do it?

Doesn't look like either. Based on shape I suspect Eastern Germany origin possible Cleo-Skribent based on their Aura model.

Hmm... I see what you mean. The cap has some similarity. This is such a curiosity. I really wonder who made this pen!

Also, Cleo Skribent makes piston fillers that use a blind cap to cover the piston knob and ones where the cap is threaded when posted. All of the features in the Davidoff pen can be found on different Cleo Skribent models. They even have models covered in a dipped lacquer finish.

So, highly likely that it's a Cleo Skribent. I've never looked at that brand before, perhaps I'll take a look into it now.

I'm not so fond of the pen but Davidoff sure makes a fine cigar

 

Hahaha. That's too bad. I guess each persons taste is different. I have now acquired the pen, and although it wasn't love at first sight, I am growing to like it more and more. Likely cause I was introduced to the Rouge et Noir by Montblanc a while back. I didn't really like the pen at first sight either, as I wasn't really a fan of snakes (though I thought they were cool on items). But I grew to like the pen, especially the more exaggerated Limited Editions. So when I saw this pen, I bit. Haha.

      I have the Sailor Naginata and some fancy blade nibs coming after 2022 by a number of new workshop from China.  With all my respect, IMHO, they are all (bleep) in doing chinese characters.  Go use a bush, or at least a bush pen.

      It is the reason why I'm so keen on the idea of a personal library — of pens, nibs, inks, paper products, etc. — and spent so much money, as well as time and effort, to “build” it for myself (because I can't simply remember everything, especially as I'm getting older fast) and my wife, so that we can “know”; and, instead of just disposing of what displeased us, or even just not good enough to be “given the time of day” against competition from >500 other pens and >500 other inks for our at

      Agreed.  And I think it’s good to be aware of this early on and think about at the point of buying rather than rationalizing a purchase..
    • A Smug Dill
      Alas, one cannot know “good” without some idea of “bad” against which to contrast; and, as one of my former bosses (back when I was in my twenties) used to say, “on the scale of good to bad…”, it's a spectrum, not a dichotomy. Whereas subjectively acceptable (or tolerable) and unacceptable may well be a dichotomy to someone, and finding whether the threshold or cusp between them lies takes experiencing many degrees of less-than-ideal, especially if the decision is somehow influenced by factors o

      I got my first real fountain pen on my 60th birthday and many hundreds of pens later I’ve often thought of what I should’ve known in the beginning. I have many pens, the majority of which have some objectionable feature. If they are too delicate, or can’t be posted, or they are too precious to face losing , still they are users, but only in very limited environments..  I have a big disliking for pens that have the cap jump into the air and fly off. I object to Pens that dry out, or leave blobs o
