Montegrappa Heartwood Olive Fountain Pen
Montegrappa Heartwood Olive Fountain Pen remind us that – even in an age of wireless communications and high-tech materials – handwriting with instruments fashioned from elements provided by nature will always embody the essence of humanity.
Montegrappa, Italy’s oldest manufacturer of fine writing instruments, is proud of its heritage and has honoured all manner of Italian cultural touchstones, from grappa production to soccer to the Tricolore. With the contemporary classic, the Fortuna pen, as its base, Heartwood pays homage to that most Italian of values: a love of organic materials and the gifts of Mother Nature. The new pens explore the relationship between man and nature, a precious link that must never be undervalued.
Heartwood pens have been created to represent the range and variety of woods that hold special appeal for the connoisseur and the aesthete. The material is recognised globally as one mastered and elevated by Italian craftspersons. Montegrappa has embodied the gorgeous brown, black or tan hues of various woods in pen caps and barrels fashioned from organic wood materials, accented by brushed bronze-coloured trims.
Most popular with Italian woodworkers, and found in furnishings, in boats and even musical instruments are woods with distinctive grains and colours. One pen is fashioned of the darkest teak, walnut provides a pen with a nutmeg colouring while pear wood delivers a reddish cast.
Since 1912, Montegrappa has been manufacturing high quality writing instruments in the same historic building in Bassano del Grappa, North East of Italy. Being the first Italian manufacturer of superior writing instruments, Montegrappa pens was dedicated to more than a century of peerless craftsmanship that defines an Italian brand, known around the world for its creativity and style.
Montegrappa has produced the pen of choice for authors including John Dos Passos, Paulo Coelho and Ernest Hemingway. Its pens are used by Popes, Presidents and Royalty. Illustrious users and collectors are known as Montegrappisti who include sylvester Stallone, Rudolf Schenker of Scorpions, Eva Longoria, Muhammad Ali, zinedine zidane and many others.
The skills and vision which have produced the finest pens have been applied to other accoutrements that enhance one’s life which range from Montegrappa Cult Collections, Icons Collection, leather accessories and time pieces that delight the user.
Appealing to the senses, Montegrappa has also introduced new collections to speak on elements of human nature that drive one to greater heights: Emozione, Passione and Desiderio are pens that reach into one’s soul.
