Inspired by Sir Walter Raleigh
Named after the Elizabethan explorer and adventurer, Sir Walter Raleigh, the Conway Stewart Raleigh Dartmoor is the perfect pen for anyone with a sense of adventure.
Born in Devon, the home of Conway Stewart, Walter Raleigh was an English writer, poet, politician and explorer who was knighted by Queen Elizabeth 1 in 1585. He was instrumental in the English colonisation of North America and the town of Raleigh, North Carolina, is his legacy.
And this Conway Stewart Raleigh is a beautiful marbled brown colour named after Dartmoor, the large National Park in Devon with its wild, open moorlands and deep river valleys. Magnificent scenery and a magnificent pen. Very English!
No other Conway Stewart pen has the distinctive design elements of the Raleigh. The perfectly proportioned barrel is complemented by two solid gold rings and topped with a cap that features a slight inward curve towards the top. Unusually, there is a quartet of solid gold rings around the cap while both the cap top and barrel end feature an unusual stepped design (see below), which give the Raleigh a rakish touch of distinction.
The Conway Stewart Raleigh Dartmoor is a unique design, departing from the traditional in several ways, while still retaining the classic styling that recalls Conway Stewart’s rich heritage. The perfectly proportioned barrel is accented with two solid gold rings and topped with a cap that features a slight inward curve towards the top. Unusually, there is a quartet of solid gold rings around the cap while both the cap top and barrel end feature a classic stepped design, which give the Raleigh an elegant touch of distinction.
Only 7 are available – A rarity for CS collectors
This special edition of the Raleigh is crafted out of precious Dartmoor resin which is a subtle blend of rich, dark brown – almost black – marble with white and silver flecks. The mix of colours is further complimented by the solid gold trim on the cap and barrel.
We have found sufficient components to make up just 7 complete Raleigh Dartmoor pens and once they have been sold it’s highly unlikely that we will be able to make any more. So if you would like to add this superb Conway Stewart classic to your collection, there’s no time to waste.
