Montegrappa takes us to the place where magical adventures begin. All great stories must start somewhere, and our creative journeys starts at Platform 9¾.
More than twenty-five years ago, a young Harry Potter was whisked onto the Hogwarts Express from Platform 9¾ at Kings Cross Station, sweeping fans everywhere along with him into a magical universe.
- Scarlet, black and gold conjure memories of the world’s most magical locomotive. Operated by Hogwarts Railways, the Hogwarts Express itself adorns the cap, etched into golden steel.
- Weighting, finishing and detailing point to a writing instrument primed for academic performance. The Hogwarts school shield and a pair of dapper enameled stripes decorate a durable, spring-loaded clip.
Montegrappa’s Harry Potter Platform 9¾ fountain pen is equipped with a #6 steel nib and fills with a cartridge or converter. A broad range of specially formulated Harry Potter inks is also available.
Italy’s first pen producer, Montegrappa, began manufacturing pens in 1912 in its factory in Bassano del Grappa in Italy. Utilizing natural celluloid and precious metals,Montegrappa combines traditional methods such as die-casting with more recent innovations as low-relief engraving to form their precious art objects. Whether Montegrappa use colors reminiscent of the master painters or ornamentation suggestive of Baroque palaces, the Italian heritage and romance is infused into each product.
