FrontRunners: Freedom Writer

Montblanc is offering Americans an exquisite means of exercising their freedom of expression. The $33,000 Montblanc Statue of Liberty Artisan Edition (www.montblanc.com), available only in the United States and limited to just 50 examples (for the 50 states), includes a number of design elements that reference its namesake: The 18-karat white-gold nib is engraved with the image of the statue’s torch in yellow gold; a larger version of the torch serves as the pen’s clip; the cap resembles the statue’s crown; and the date etched on the tablet in Lady Liberty’s left hand—July 4, 1776— is rendered in Roman numerals on the pen’s wear-resistant, PVD-coated barrel.
