Galuchat uniquely combines properties that are usually mutually exclusive.

It has a soft and smooth feel, while being remarkably resilient and tear-resistant. Both waterproof and fireproof, it is considered to be the most durable leather in the world.

Moreover, it distinguishes itself through exclusive aesthetic qualities: Each stingray skin exhibits an individually distinct pearl mosaic and develops special colour nuances, some of which are derived from the anthracite grey spectrum while others elicit light olive green or ivory hues. Accordingly, the “Pen of the Year 2005” is available in two different coloured models, and each fountain pen has its own distinctive colour hue.


Highly prized in luxury production during the Art Déco era, stingray leather or Galuchat places great challenges on expert craftsmanship.

Following careful selection, the skin is subjected to an elaborate vat-tanning process. However, more than thirty additional individual working  steps are required to craft the Galuchat barrel of the “Pen of the Year 2005”.

Repeated careful buffing and finishing is the key to the distinctive visual appearance of each individual pen. Designed with attention to the smallest detail, the platinum-plated bridge represents a masterpiece in craftsmanship.
