The pen that destroyed an AK-47!
While travelling on business in Africa, social entrepreneur Peter Thum saw firsthand the effects of this war and witnessed a world where it was normal for Children to carry guns.
This inspired him to take action. His purpose to get significant numbers of guns out of circulation in Africa and to engage influencers around the world to join him.
Many said it could not be done but the AK 47 (Avtomat Kaliashnikova) type assault rifle is the origin of Fonderie 47 pieces and in conjunction with Cross, have produced this unique rollerball pen and for each pen bought, another gun is taken off the streets of Africa – Surely this is a great thing!
The pen’s body takes its unique design cues from the lethal assault rifle that is the AK 47. There is a gunmetal disc set into the top made from the melted down steel of a genuine AK 47 taken out of circulation by Fonderie 47’s work.
Each pen is engraved with a unique serial number from a destroyed AK 47, is finished in gunmetal PVD with 23ct gold plated appointments and comes beautifully presented in a luxury presentation box with Fonderie 47 themed sleeve, authenticity card and wooden pen stand. Fitted with the Cross jumbo gel rollerball refill.
