In the last 20 years, ongoing wars on the African Continent have resulted in the loss of millions of lives. This conflict has largely been enabled due to the widespread availability of assault rifles.
Fonderie 47 helps make a difference by removing AK-47s from circulation and transforming them into beautiful and exclusive luxury objects that will help fund the ongoing cause. Over 50,000 assault rifles have been destroyed to date.
The craftsmen at Cross used Fonderie 47 reconstituted AK-47 gunmetal to create the fine detail work in the cap inset of the Peerless Fonderie 47 fountain and rollerball pens. These are the only writing instruments in the world crafted with Fonderie 47 gun steel.
We celebrate this moment where something so beautiful can help support a cause so noble.
