The Montblanc Great Characters Elvis Presley Special Edition is a tribute to one of the most significant cultural icons of the 20th century – the “King of Rock ‘n Roll”, who shaped a generation. Born in 1935, Tupelo, Mississippi, and relocated to Memphis, Tennessee, Elvis Presley became one of the most famous musicians of all time.
The overall shape of the writing instrument is in the form of a car engine’s spark plug, inspired by Elvis’ love for Cadillacs and their V8 engines. The clip has a V shape, which is also a reference to his beloved cars. The script of the initials “EP” refers to his signature style sunglasses. Lastly, the pattern on the cap and barrel is inspired by the golden ring he wore during the “Aloha from Hawaii” concert.
The fountain pen uses a piston filling mechanism and has a special edition 14kt gold nib, showing the King himself, surrounded by the words ‘Blue Suede Shoes’.
With every Great Characters Edition, Montblanc commemorates individuals who have broken new ground in the fields of culture, politics, science or the arts, and the impact of the legacy they have left behind.
