Gandhi sells

Luxury penmaker Montblanc has developed a Gandhi-themed rhodium-plated fountain pen, entwined with a gold wire to “evoke the roughly-wound yarn on the spindle with which Gandhi spun every day for half an hour, regardless of where he was or whom he was talking to”.
There will only be 241 pens made (each with an engraving of Gandhi), to mark the 241 miles on the Indian pacifist’s famous salt march of 1930. Each Gandhi pen costs only £16,000 (and of course makes a donation to charity.)
