Montegrappa Takes Off
It has been one of Montegrappa’s greatest pleasures to be able to dedicate pen collections to specific professions. From the producers of grappa to the great chefs, to lawyers and psychologists, to sommeliers and musicians and doctors, Montegrappa has adapted each career’s symbols to create a visual theme that honors the occupation in question. We are proud to announce a new pen celebrating the bravest of the brave: airplane pilots.
To evoke the trappings of aircraft, the Aviator’s Pen is made entirely of aluminum. 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 Aviator’s Pen are 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 Aviator’s Pen will be available as a fountain pen with it’s nib made of stainless steel, offered in the standard writing grades of Fine, Medium and Broad. Its filling system is both cartridge and converter fed.
The Montegrappa Aviator Pen is now available for pre-order with delivery expected in mid-November. Payment for your order will be processed once the pens have arrived and are ready to ship.
