Stipula Gladiator Deluxe Rollerball Pen
The myth of the Gladiator, the armed combatant who entertained audiences in ancient Rome in violent confrontations with other gladiators, wild animals or condemned criminals, has been long celebrated in history and in modern times as well. Some gladiators were volunteers who risked their legal and social standing and their lives by appearing in the arena. Originally, the Gladiator games evolved out of an Etruscan religious practice, then were adopted by Roman society to honor the bravery portrayed in the face of death. Stipula embodies this valor with its Gladiator Deluxe writing instrument collection. The large, commanding pens have a masterful band hand-casted in high relief depicting the Roman Colosseum, an icon of gladiators’ fights and of Rome itself. On top of the pen is a typical shield with the tools of the gladiator: a net, used to harness the opponent, a helmet and a trident. The Gladius, the famous short sword of Romans, is represented by the clip of the pen, while the ring at the bottom of the barrel mimics the studs around the gladiator's shield. New! Gladiator Deluxe has a new look in Blue Lapis or Black resin with matte silver trim; or Tortoise or Red with matte gold accents. Choose your writing weapon: fountain pen with large, polished steel nib with regular or ITALIC MEDIUM point; capped rollerball or twist ball pen. You'll feel armed and ready for any writing challenge that comes your way.
