Ancora Sword Black Gold Fountain Pen
In 333 BCE., Alexander the Great invaded Asia Minor and arrived in the town of Gordium; he was 23 years old. Undefeated but without a decisive victory either, he was in need of an omen to prove to his troops and his enemies that the outcome of his mission –to conquer the known world– was possible.
In Gordium, by the Temple of the Zeus Basilica, stood an ox cart placed there by the King of Phrygia over 100 years before. The King tied the staves of the cart together in a very complex knot. Having arrived at Gordium it was inconceivable that the young, impetuous Alexander would not tackle the legendary *Gordian Knot.” Alexander climbed the hill and approached the cart as a crowd of curious Macedonians and Phrygians gathered around.
They watched intently as Alexander struggled with the knot and became frustrated. He, stepping back, called out, *What does it matter how I loose it? With that, he drew his Sword and in one powerful stroke severed the knot. That night there was a huge electrical storm which the seers conveniently interpreted to mean the gods were pleased with the actions of this so-called Son of Zeus. This 2010 Sword Limited Edition, made of specialized resins and acrylics, includes also a Piston Filler System. In addition.the pen has an 18 kt gold nib exclusively made by Ancora in-house.
