S.T. Dupont

Historical Overview S .T. Dupont

In 1872, Simon Tissot Dupont opened his first workshop in Paris. The 145 years since span six human generations. And down those generations, a tradition has arisen. From grandparent to parent, parent to child, a gift of S.T. Dupont has been made to celebrate the most significant moments in life.

The First Dupont Pen

It was thanks to Jackie Kennedy, at the time First Lady of the United States, that the French House in 1973 introduced the Art of Writing. She asked them to design a handsome, simple and elegant writing

instrument that would match her Ligne 1 lighter. Thus, S.T. Dupont invented the first luxury ballpoint pen for her. The firm's writing instruments have ever since been as much prized by heads of state as by lovers of fine writing. An S.T. Dupont pen offers the guarantee of impeccably high standards and the expression of a personal identity.

By drawing inspiration from icons of 21st century pop culture, S.T. Dupont has redefined the boundaries for luxury and high-end products. The collections inspired by the worlds of Marvel, Star Wars, James Bond, McLaren and the Rolling Stones combine vibrant modernity with age-old traditions of craftsmanship.

In 2017, S.T. Dupont celebrated 145 years of prestige and exclusivity, and continues to express its passion - creating exceptional products for exceptional people like Marylin, Audrey Hepburn, Picasso, Coco Chanel, Yves Saint-Laurent, Leonardo Di Caprio, Daniel Craig, Cara Delevigne, Keira Knightley, Natalie Portman and Jean Dujardin.


Fashioned from metal to give superior strength, the S.T. Dupont writing instrument takes shape in the hands of our master craftsmen over the course of 150 separate processes. The nib is subject to meticulous attention: in solid 14 Karat gold or stainless-steel, each nib is handcrafted and polished by our Master Craftsman giving a superlative quality to writing. All S.T. Dupont writing instruments are equipped with an articulated clip. The cap makes a click that reminds of the ‘cling’ of a lighter. The cap of the writing instrument will never touch the lacquer so as not to damage it.

  • S.T. Dupont D-Initial

    Affordable Classic
    In homage to the first “Classique” pen, S.T. Dupont presents a brand new and more contemporary writing instrument to meet the requirements of modern-day men and women. The D-Initial fountain pen is offered in black resin and golden or chrome finish. The well balance cylindrical shape providing the perfect size and weight for writing. 

    Rollerball Versus Ballpoint. A Comparison.
    There are several differences. While a ballpoint pen uses a thick oil-based ink, the rollerball pen uses liquid ink. This key difference makes the rollerball feel smoother and more liquid, giving it a more fluid action which is comparable to a fountain pen. This fluidity also translates to a rollerball pen generally having a finer writing line. On the other hand, a ballpoint pen does have a more controlled action and the refill  lasts longer. 

    Nib Anatomy and Self-Expression

    You’ll find the writing experience with the D-Initial to be effortless. The tactile pleasure unique. Easily express your personal style with the iridium tipped medium stainless-steel nib. The pen fills with our Standard international cartridges or the included converter.
