To evoke the trappings of aircraft, the Montegrappa Aviator pen is made entirely of aluminium. Its profile is rounded, to reflect the laws of aerodynamics, and inherent in every external component found in aircraft. The pen’s look therefore conveys the dynamism of flight, its curved pen barrel blending into a sharpened cap, conceived as a whole to resemble both aircraft and rockets. Adorning the entire body of the Montegrappa Aviator pen is specific design details in the language of the aviation industry. Montegrappa’s artisans have finished the pen with “stitching”-style rows of “planks” secured with minuscule rivet heads, accompanied by fuel tank apertures, the “Remove before Flight” and “No Step” commands, etched along the pen in perfect relief. The signature clip bears a complex, technical design shape reminiscent of landing gear struts, with the classic Montegrappa rotating sphere re-imagined as a knurled ferrule. The Montegrappa Aviator fountain pen has a stainless steel nib and uses the standard international cartridge/converter filling mechanism.

Among the families of pens created by Montegrappa to honour the most notable personages throughout history is Genio Creativo. Following pens inspired by and dedicated to Dalì, Gibran, Stradivari, Modigliani, Canova, Tchaikovsky and Tiziano is a limited edition acknowledging the contributions of watchmaker Bartolomeo Ferracina. For Montegrappa, the honour has an added meaning, as Ferracina was not only a son of the Veneto: he was born in the same area as the home to Montegrappa. At a time when fine watchmaking has been recognised as an art, as much as it is a skill, the great horological figures of the past are enjoying new-found respect. Among those who contributed to the development of the machines that tell us the time was Bartolomeo Ferracina, a watchmaker and engineer from Solagna, a little village adjacent to Bassano del Grappa. While his projects involving hydraulics benefitted the municipalities in which he operated, it was his work with clocks for which Ferracina is celebrated. He produced models of many types and sizes, from pendulum clocks to those with automata, from table to tower clocks, including models with the indication of the lunar phases, the motion of the stars and the zodiac. He managed this even though limiting himself to applying existing knowledge, without having to invent any new mechanisms. His most notable contribution to the history of timekeeping was the reconstruction of the tower clock of Piazza San Marco in Venice, to the benefit of millions of tourists every year. Each pen is fitted with an 18k gold filigree-etched nib, available in the grades of Fine, Medium and Broad. The nib’s filigree decoration is also found on the cap’s lower band, which also hosts the Montegrappa logo. The signature clip with the traditional rotating sphere reflects the sinuous curves of the new body form. Aptly adorning the top of the cap is the perfect homage to Bartolomeo: it contains a small, perfectly functioning quartz watch, in a 16 mm silver case. The mechanism, completely detachable from the cap top, boasts a Swiss-made Ronda 6000D movement. Italy's first pen manufacturer, Montegrappa, began manufacturing pens in 1912 in its factory in Bassano del Grappa - a picturesque town along the Brenta River, which flows through Alpine foothills in northeastern Italy.

There is writing. And then there is calligraphy. Calligraphy is to writing what marquetry is to carpentry. It is the act of applying a second level to the communication which writing accomplishes, for – regardless of form or font – a word on the page or manuscript has a specific meaning. Calligraphy enhances the actual letters which form a word by adding a visual element that both complements and reinforces the message. When written calligraphically, letters and words transcend their basic forms and become precious items. To couple together the spiritual and visual elements of Arabic calligraphy, and to translate them into a pen design, Montegrappa turned to the Lebanese artist and designer, Katya Assouad Traboulsi. Her creativity marries the calligraphy and the Arabesque pattern, which are intricately bound together by history and culture. Based in Dubai, Traboulsi was born in 1960. Since 1986, her work has been exhibited in Paris, Washington, Mexico City, New York, London, Kuwait, Algiers, Beirut, Dubai and other capitals. Traboulsi’s art has entered many private collections all over the world. She has also also published two books, Of Others (2011) and Generation War’ (2013). Traboulsi’s design for the Montegrappa Calligraphy pen features an elegant arabesque medallion in silver as a cap top and an exquisite interplay of enamel arabesque patterns in mother-of-pearl white, red and green. The pen barrel is characterised by its Arabic calligraphy phrase, virtuously embossed on a silver background. The phrase literally reads: “the pen transports culture”, and the symbolism of this phrase is that the pen has been the instrument of transmitting knowledge and culture through time and across generations. Available as a fountain pen only, but with a wide range of nibs including oblique and stub versions preferred by calligraphers, the Montegrappa Calligraphy writing instrument is made of bamboo black celluloid with sterling silver trim. The fountain pen is fitted with an 18K gold nib enhanced with a bicolour arabesque motif. Delivered in a hand-made wooden case devised to protect the pen, it also houses a hardback version of the special book, “Arabic Calligraphy: Worlds Made Precious”. The Montegrappa Calligraphy pen is a limited edition comprising 328 pieces, this number representing the first and oldest discovered document written in a dialect of Arabic and dated 328 CE. Italy's first pen manufacturer, Montegrappa, began manufacturing pens in 1912 in its factory in Bassano del Grappa - a picturesque town along the Brenta River, which flows through Alpine foothills in northeastern Italy.

Montegrappa, in its capacity of official licensee, has entered into a fantastic new collaboration with the ‘best of the best’ football club competition, the UEFA Champions League. Footballing grandeur fuses with flashes of modern architecture to match the glamour and precision of Europe’s premier sporting spectacle. Wrapped around a body of deep blue resin, an intricate exoskeleton of precious metals provides the setting for the silhouette of the continent’s grandest trophy. Pairing physical perfection with glittering extravagance, it’s an elite player in every sense.Designed in 1967, The iconic UEFA Champions League trophy informs much more than the shiny façade of Best of the Best. Held aloft by many of history’s greatest players, its extravagantly formed handles have been faithfully fashioned into a pocket clip, while the trophy’s gold-plate interior is another feature adopted by the Montegrappa design team. A vacant field on the barrel’s reverse can be used to engrave a personal monogram, sponsor logo, or to record a famous victory.The sterling silver fountain pen iand rollerball arelimited to only 128 pieces each. The number 128 represents the total number of football teams that have taken part in the game competitions since its foundation in 1954/55, until the end of the 2018/2019 season.

Precisely 20 years after Montegrappa issued the first Cigar edition, Montegrappa has again honoured this most elevated form of smoking with a new limited edition. Although tobacco usage has fallen out of favour, cigars remain a guilty pleasure for connoisseurs who appreciate the rich tastes and aromas.Made in the special “Tobacco” celluloid, one of the 24 hues Montegrappa boasts in its archives, the Cigar pen resembles the subject with uncanny realism. The colour was chosen for its particular combination of light brown with lighter, pearlised streaks that resemble organic tobacco leaves.Its shape is deceptively simple, just like a cigar, adorned on the outside by the “cigar-band” in precious metal, declaring the brand and its year of foundation. To maintain the uninterrupted form, the Cigar pen does not feature a pocket clip. In terms of size, too, it is a perfect replica of a real cigar, specifically a classic model called a “Laguito n.2,” with sizing of 152 mm in length and 15.08 mm in diameter.Like an actual cigar, the pen possesses a roundish tip “to punch” and light up. A detail that adds to the cigar smoking-like experience is the fully functional puncher that comes out of the pen cap when the latter is pulled downwards.Montegrappa’s Cigar Pen is offered with trim in Sterling Silver or 18k Gold and is available only as fountain pen or rollerball. The nib of the fountain pen is made of 18k gold, embellished with the Montegrappa filigree pattern. Production is limited to the traditional numbers of Montegrappa: 888 fountain and 888 rollerball pens in Silver, and 88 of each in 18k Gold. All Cigar pens are housed in special packaging in the shape of a tobacco leaf.Italy's first pen manufacturer, Montegrappa, began manufacturing pens in 1912 in its factory in Bassano del Grappa - a picturesque town along the Brenta River, which flows through Alpine foothills in northeastern Italy.

Joining Montegrappa’s Cult Collection, the new Grappa fountain pen was inspired by the renowned distillate “grappa”- an Italian specialty that nowadays has devotees all over the world. This incredible writing instrument was also thought as homage to Bassano del Grappa – the town Montegrappa calls home, for the place is just as well one of the major producers of this refined liquor. The “grappa” distinct personality is defined by the type and quality of the grapes used, as well as the distillation process or “secret recipe.” As proof of grappa’s ascension to the ranks of chic liquors, many of Italy’s finest wine producers now bottle their own “grappa”, including the “Super Tuscans” Sassicaia and Tignanello. There can be no higher accolade. Both the historic traditions of grappa distilling and the aesthetic of steampunk have inspired and influenced the design of the latest addition to Montegrappa’s Cult collection. The materials used in the pens’ manufacture, reminiscent of the distilling vessels, include stainless steel, brass and copper for the cap and barrel, employed in the manner of the actual equipment’s construction. Montegrappa’s technicians executed hand-applied hammering techniques on the copper components, while tiny screws – both functional and ornamental – remind the user of the technological inspiration of the product. Even the pocket clip continues the grappa-making theme, formed to recall the copper tubing used in the distilling process. Exquisite touches detail both ends of this remarkable writing instrument. Inserted into the top of the cap is a disc made of real cork as used in a grappa bottle top, beneath a filigree-cut octagonal grid recalling Montegrappa’s eight-sided symbol. Lastly, the 18k gold duotone nib is embellished with a bunch of grapes on the vine. The Montegrappa Cult Collection Grappa Pen has been issued as fountain pen, with both cartridge and converter feeders, and as a rollerball. Production is limited to 1912 for the fountain pen and 1912 for the rollerball, the given number denotes the year of establishment of the Montegrappa company. The blind cap of the Grappa pen is reserved for the limited edition number. Embracing the spirit of grappa and its life-enhancing properties, the Montegrappa Cult Grappa Pens arrive in special packaging not unlike the presentation of an actual bottle of the liquor. The pen comes in a blown glass bottle with a large globe base, made by local artisans, bearing the Montegrappa coat of arms in metallic finish. Italy's first pen manufacturer, Montegrappa, began manufacturing pens in 1912 in its factory in Bassano del Grappa - a picturesque town along the Brenta River, which flows through Alpine foothills in northeastern Italy.

Montegrappa honours Dante Alighieri – writer of The Divine Comedy and father of the Italian language. 700 years after his death, Dante’s virtuosity continues to dazzle readers and historians alike, with few works more fabled than his terrifying Inferno. The Dante Alighieri: Inferno is handcrafted from precious metals and a special ‘magma’ batch of Montegrappite artisanal resin. Heavenly writing performance meets high-precision micro-sculpting in a work that brings the supreme poet’s dark vision to life in your hand. From blind cap to top disc, every intricate element of Dante Alighieri: Inferno recounts Dante’s voyage from the mysterious forest to the icy bowels of hell. Lucifer’s pointed tail protrudes from the cap to form a pocket-clip of demonic intent. Lost-wax casting reconstructs Dante’s nine circles of hell with meticulous detail. Beneath Limbo and the river of Acheron, every miniature chasm examines sins of increasing severity: Lust, Gluttony, Greed, and Wrath on the cap; Heresy, Violence, Fraud and Treachery on the barrel. Fountain pen and rollerball users are catered for with numbered limited editions of sterling silver (333 copies of each) and 18K gold (9 of each). Both tiers observe Dante’s rigorous use of the number three as a thematic, lyrical and structural device. A special presentation case is inspired by a leatherbound edition of Dante’s classic, with each writing instrument secured in place by the writer’s foreboding words “Lasciate ogne speranza voi ch’intrate” (Abandon all hope, ye who enter here). Dante Alighieri (1265-1321) was a poet and political figure, whose 1302 exile from Florence and subsequent travels inspired his famous tale of a pilgrim’s journey to God. Dante Alighieri: Inferno is the first in a trinity of writing instruments in Divina Commedia: a Montegrappa Collector Series based on the three canticle structure of Dante’s masterpiece. Inferno is the first canticle from the Divine Comedy – Dante Alighieri’s epic 14,233-line narrative poem. His story of love, sin and redemption is widely celebrated as a literary classic and is recognised as a foundation stone in the propagation of modern Italian. Montegrappa has been manufacturing the world’s most magical pens in the same artisanal factory for more than a century. Combining luxurious materials, high craftsmanship and unrivalled writing pleasure, the independent maker’s quality and individualist flair make it a firm favourite of dignitaries, creatives and collectors...

A century of Bauhaus and work of an early technological pioneer are the subjects of an Italian-made pen sure to please fans of every day carry. Montegrappa is best known for designing pens beyond the fantasies – and budgets – of the average handwriting enthusiast, but the Italian company’s latest release sees a return to its more modest roots and the vision of its original co-founder, Heinrich ‘Elmo’ Helm. The factory that today produces the world’s most indulgent pens was, from 1912 to 1928, leading the charge to democratise writing. Back then, portable pens were an emerging technology fraught with problems and still seeking wide acceptance as tools of knowledge and networking. Helm was the company’s first technical director – a figure with an industriousness and optimism reminiscent of today’s tech entrepreneurs. His know-how and charisma inspired the fledgling company to name its first products after him, and Elmo pens would go on to be mainstays of Italian offices and schools for decades to come. The Montegrappa Elmo 01 is a compact, all-round pen that recalls the international style popularized by Bauhaus throughout the 1920s. During that era, Helm would steer his company away from the archetypes of dipping pens and design new solutions that catered for contemporary lifestyles. Portability, reliability and efficiency were his mantra. Handmade from resin and stainless steel, it brings robust, all-round performance, honest simplicity and a century of know-how to prestige stationery. The Elmo 01 fountain pen has a stainless steel nib and uses a cartrdige/converter filling mechanism. 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.
