“True, This! —
Beneath the rule of men entirely great

The pen is mightier than the sword. Behold

The arch-enchanters wand! — itself is nothing! —


But taking sorcery from the master-hand

To paralyse the Cæsars, and to strike

The loud earth breathless! —
Take away the sword —

States can be saved without it!”

– Edward Bulwer-Lytton, 1836


In the last 20 years ongoing wars on the African continent have resulted in the loss of millions of lives. The conflict has been enabled by the widespread availability of assault rifles. CROSS has partnered with Fonderie 47 to create the Peerless Fonderie 47 Limited-Edition Fountain Pen--to help make a difference by reducing access to assault weapons in these war-struck areas. Each Peerless Fonderie 47 Limited-Edition Fountain Pen purchased will fund the destruction of ten assault rifles in a war zone in Africa.

"In the spirit of the CROSS brand--an historic, American icon symbolizing human potential--we are dedicated to aligning with those who pursue their greatness through creative ingenuity. This partnership with Fonderie 47 and its founder Peter Thum, is exemplary of this aspect of the CROSS brand DNA. The Peerless Fonderie 47 Limited-Edition Fountain Pen is at once, an exquisite fine writing instrument for human expression as well as a vehicle for positive social impact and change," said Magnus Jonsson, Global CMO, A.T. CROSS.

CROSS has created only forty-seven of these limited edition fine writing instruments. The series' signature is a disk of blackened steel from a melted-down AK47, which is precision set in the cap and marked with the Fonderie 47 logo. Additionally, the center band that encircles its 18 KT, gold-filled barrel is inscribed with the unique serial number of the gun taken out of circulation in Africa to create it. For purposes of authenticity, each fountain pen is also engraved with a CROSS limited-edition number, representing each pen's unique number in the limited series of forty-seven pens.

"We chose to partner with CROSS to create the next collection of Fonderie 47 limited-edition, luxury items because Cross has a proud history of excellence. These fine writing instruments embody the idea of our mission, enabling expressions with a style and intimacy that is absent in most communication today," says Peter Thum, Founder and CEO, Fonderie 47.

Launched in 2009 by CROSS "Mark Maker" and brand ambassador Peter Thum, Fonderie 47 already has removed more than 50,000 AK47s and other small arms from circulation in Africa. The foundation of this partnership and creation of these noble collector's items came as a result of diligent efforts of Peter Thum and his team, who spent a year and a half traveling to conflict zones in Africa negotiating to safely and legally obtain confiscated assault weapons. Once secured, they had these guns melted down by a local blacksmith and then transported them back to the US

The next phase of the project took root in Brooklyn, NY, where they built a forge and engaged an American blacksmith to remake the gun steel into new ingots from which the signature Fonderie 47 pieces for the pens could be created.

The fine writing instrument craftsmen at CROSS used the blackened AK47 gunmetal to create the fine detail work in the cap inset of this new edition to the Peerless collection, the finest writing instrument ever created by CROSS.

Showcased in a beautiful keepsake box with romance booklet and acrylic pen stand etched with the Fonderie 47 logo to showcase this truly unmatched work of art. Includes a Certificate of Aut
henticity signed by Peter Thum and the Cross designer. Limited to only 47 Fountain Pens worldwide.
