To commemorate the 140th year of Mahatma birth, the company will also highlight the 241 miles traveled by him during the famous salt march of 1930 by making just 241 pieces of this pen. Each comes with an eight-metre golden thread that can be wound around the pen, representing the spindle and cotton Gandhi used to weave simple cloth.

Gandhi’s great-grandson Tushar Gandhi has endorsed the idea. His charitable foundation has already received a donation of $145,000 from Montblanc and will receive between $200 and $1,000 for each pen sold.

For those who find the pen a little out of their price range, there is a more affordable version – there are 3,000 roller ball and fountain pens on sale for about $3,000 dollars each.
