LeBoeuf Limited Edition Harry Houdini Rollerball
The LeBoeuf Pen Company is proud to honor Harry Houdini, historys most famous magician, with this stunning Limited Edition fountain pen and roller ball. Harry Houdini was born on March 24, 1874 in Budapest and moved to Milwaukee when he was eight years old. On October 28, 1883, the nine year old made his first appearance on stage, performing a trapeze act. Using his birth name, he billed himself, "Ehrich, the Prince of the Air." About this time, Ehrich and his brother Theo began to pursue an interest in magic. As a stage name, Ehrich Weiss became Harry Houdini by adding an A to the last name of his idol, French magician Robert Houdin. At 17, Ehrich, now known as Harry Houdini, left his family to pursue his magic career. By the age of twenty, Harry had been performing small acts throughout New York. He soon married and joined a circus where he began to develop and perfect his escape tricks. Through the years, Houdini gained fame after repeatedly escaping from police handcuffs and jails. After making his name in America, Harry toured Europe, where he expanded his repertoire by escaping from straitjackets and coffins. Eventually, Harry was able to accomplish his dream of having a full show dedicated to his magic. In his later years, Harry took his talent to the film arena, where he both acted and started his own film laboratory called The Film Development Corporation. Years later, Harry would receive a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. In addition, Harry showed interest in the field of aviation and was the first person to ever fly over Australian soil. In the 1920s, Harry became interested in the occult, specifically in debunking mediums and psychics. His training in magic helped him expose frauds that scientists and academics could not. He chronicled his time investigating the occult in his book, A Magician among the Spirits. In 1926 Houdini died as a result of a blow to his abdomen which ruptured his appendix. Houdini refused to seek medical help and continued to travel. Harry Houdini died on October 24, 1926 at the age of 52. His legend has only grown over the decades. Today Harry Houdini is considered the most famous magician and escape artist in history. The LeBoeuf Harry Houdini Limited Edition was designed using an exclusive acrylic called Mystic Black Smoke. This unique material was inspired by the mystical presence of Houdini whose magical acts left his audiences in wonder and amazement. The stunning Smoke Gray barrel with flecks of Black Magic, create a mystical combination of colors reminiscent of Houdini and the magical acts he performed. Each Barrel is engraved with Harry Houdini’s famous signature in Red paint fill. A Gold plated embossed coin featuring a portrait of Harry Houdini has been carefully placed atop each pen cap. A Gold plated clip and band enhance the elegance of this very special pen. The Harry Houdini Limited Edition is available as both a Fountain Pen and Roller Ball. Each Fountain Pen features a German 14kt gold plated nib in both Fine and Medium point and utilizes a cartridge/convertor filling system. Each pen is packaged in a special commemorative Harry Houdini pen box . The LeBoeuf Harry Houdini Limited Edition is a stunning tribute to the World’s most famous Magician whose last name “Houdini” has become synonymous with the words Magic and Illusion.
