Onoto "The Pen"

Onoto, a name derived to sound the same in most languages, was manufactured by Thomas de la Rue (TDLR), a British company specialising in security printing.

TDLR "Plunger Filling" pens were manufactured with the same basic action for more than 40 years, being discontinued in the late 40's. Today, these pens are once again desirable, particularly in countries like Japan, where they were popular in their halcyon days.

Restoration of these pens requires replacement of the plunger washer, cork seals, and often the plunger rod. Of course, like our entire catalogue, we have fully restored any Onoto pens we have for sale.

Like Conway Stewart, after a gap of many years, the brand name Onoto was re-registered, and a Limited Edition pen released.
