---- fortitudo et fides ----

Collection: F-C Classic Black Collection

We're at heart a brand that always features every pen model with a classic black option. Our original Model 01 IPO fountain pen only came in black. Every model we've ever had has had a primarily black, if not solid black option - and every new model first comes in the Initial Pen Offering (IPO) edition in black. Franklin-Christoph founder Scott C. Franklin likes to say he "designs in black" as he focuses on form and function for every design. Here is a place where you can see all our black options.

All sold out models represented here will return at some point, so you can sign up for an email back in stock notice on those pages. Note that models 25, 33, 40, 45XL, 46L, p66, and 66 are considered SEO - special edition only, and are produced less frequently.
