Summit S175

About This Model

Summit was the brand name for a line of pens produced by Lang/Curzon, a British pen manufacturer that changed names and owners several times over its history. Curzon made good, perhaps not great, pens, but all the Summits I’ve seen are well made, carry a certain dignity, and have great, expressive nibs.

About This Pen

Curiously, this example does not fit the standard S175 history as either a typical 175 or a known ‘variant’, so it might be either an undescribed variant or an odd factory issue. Either way, this is a very handsome pen, 131mm long capped, with the dark blue chased-pattern plastic, the celluloid crown, and the S175-correct stepped clip. The cap and barrel are very clean, without significant scratch or blemish. The pen carries an original gold nib, stamped “Summit 14CT Gold”, and it writes a wet, soft italic BB, a rare nib to find.

This pen is not for sale.
