Anyone who truly believes that the pen is mightier is on the same page as Mahatma Gandhi. As the leader of India’s independence movement, Gandhi championed non-violent civil disobedience to pry his nation away from British rule.
Gandhi used a number of tools to wage peaceful protests, from fasting to marches; his 241-mile trek to sea in 1930 drew a line in the sand with the British salt tax and remains one of the most indelible images in world history.
Surprisingly, the Great Soul — the translation of the honorific title “Mahatma” — wasn’t bestowed with the Noble Peace Prize, neither in life nor posthumously. But Fulfillment Team Manager Adam couldn’t deny him the honor of Monday Matchup #42. Impeccably illustrated here with a Pilot Vanishing Point Yellow with Rhodium Trim in Fine and — what else — De Atramentis Mahatma Gandhi ink, Gandhi is accompanied by some of his deepest philosophical snippets.
The Vanishing Point is a large, metal pen featuring rhodium accents and a matching rhodium-plated 18k gold nib. Gandhi’s namesake ink is a fitting match — enough to spark fresh takes and conversation about a timeless leader.
The Pilot Vanishing Point Yellow with Rhodium Trim is available at GouletPens.com for $148. De Atramentis Mahatma Gandhi ink is available in a 35ml bottle for $12.95 and as a 2ml ink sample for $1.30.
