Not just a writing instrument, a Krone pen is a statement—an acknowledgement; an acknowledgement that some values, events, individuals, and the monuments that symbolize them, are worth the controversy necessary to preserve them. Founded in 1997, Krone pens continue to stretch the boundaries of what a writing instrument can signify. Each Krone pen is a tribute to a particular piece of world history and oftentimes contains an actual physical remnant of the historical artifact itself. In this way, Krone pens become more than just a writing instrument; they become history. Through each Krone pen, those who seek a connection to the great men and events of the past now have a means to do so.
