S.T. Dupont Launches Défi Collection in Hong Kong

By Butterboom Writers  /  June 12, 2009

French luxury brand, S.T Dupont launched their latest writing instrument and leather goods line recently in Hong Kong.


S.T. Dupont’s new line, the Défi is inspired by the dynamics of the Aeronautics industry. Designed with aerodynamic lines, a slender body using injected metal with palladium finish and a composite carbon fibre body, the Défi is setting new standards in pen design. The new 304L steel nib took 2 years to perfect, the result fluid and precise writing.

We did a test run on the ballpoint pen and here’s our verdict. The pen has a nice weight to it, feels like a real pen, and have to say we love the smooth, gliding effects when you write and the almost lack of exertion required in handwriting movements.

A pen is not just a pen with S.T. Dupont.


The Défi collection includes leather goods made out of the lightest and strongest material available, stay tuned at Butterboom.com for news on when they become available in Hong Kong.

How much?

Défi pen price ranges from HK$2000 for the ballpoint pen to HK$3100 for the fountain pen.
