Montegrappa, a profoundly Italian, jewel of a company, has been manufacturing fine writing implements in the same historic building on the banks of the River Brenta for over 100 years. Each and every day they draw inspiration from the vistas right outside their windows. Their special editions have honored prominent historic and contemporary figures and events throughout the world.
Montegrappa takes great pleasure in creating pen collections for specific professions. From the producers of grappa to the great chefs, to lawyers and psychologists, to musicians and doctors, Montegrappa has adapted each career’s symbols to create a visual theme that honors the occupation chosen. Montegrappa is then very proud to announce a new pen celebrating the bravest of the brave: airplane pilots.
To evoke the trappings of aircraft, the Aviator pen is made entirely of aluminum. Its profile is rounded, to reflect the laws of aerodynamics. The pen’s shape conveys the dynamism of flight, its curved pen barrel blending into a sharpened cap, conceived to resemble both aircraft and even perhaps rockets. The finely detailed features such as ‘No Step’ and ’Fueling’ only add to the delight you sense each time you reach for your fanciful but very capable writer.
The Aviator is available in fountain pen, rollerball and ballpoint. The fountain pen’s nib is made of stainless steel, offered in fine, medium and broad. Aviator’s filling system is both cartridge and converter fed.
Harmony is the blending of complementary voices, notes or tones. It can also describe the “chemistry” between simpatico human beings. Montegrappa presents Armonia as the ideal “first pen’, the perfect gift for the graduate, the student, a new professional position or anyone embarking on another chapter in life’s journey. The price points are amazingly low. The value is obvious upon your first experience with the instrument.
Its embellishments include a circumferential band around the lower section of the cap, which is engraved with the “Montegrappa” signature. The cap is also adorned with the brand’s 1912 symbol. Its pocket clip is sinuous, ending in the company’s rolling-ball that ensures smooth ingress and egress from a pocket.
Armonia is designed for all writers and is available in fountain pen, rollerball and ballpoint. The fountain pen uses both converter and cartridge filling systems. Its stainless steel nib is enriched with a Greek fret etching. The ballpoint uses a Parker-Style which means there are several inks and dozens of colors from which to choose. The Armonia is a ‘must have’ for every collector.
