FrontRunners: Holy Writes

    The commander of the angels, the archangel Michael, appears on the barrel of the Tibaldi Sanctus Michael Archangelus (www.tibaldi.it) pen. The resin image depicts Michael bearing a sword, spear, and cross while standing atop a vanquished devil. The angel’s wings and armor and other details on the barrel are highlighted with engraved relief in either silver or gold, and a large, polished carnelian tops the cap. Silver versions are priced from $10,050. The gold-edition fountain pen is priced at $37,900, and the gold roller ball costs $43,700. Each gold edition will be limited to 50 examples.
