Dunhill Sentryman Carbon Fibre Fountain Pen-High-tech carbon fibre with palladium plated fittings makes this instrument a contemporary writer of inimitable style. The slim profile of the body leads to a cap that is evocative of the flat tops of Britain’s traditional pillar boxes.
Bold, uncomplicated and masculine, the Sentryman's simplicity of structure lends it a modern spirit, whilst its defining detail looks back to a classic British design for inspiration. This carbon fibre Sentryman fountain pen is extremely unique as it utilises genuine carbon fibre fabric shaped and encased in resin – in exactly the same way that it is used to create the panels and frames on racing bikes and cars.
