Sailor for Montegrappa

Montegrappa Limited Edition Ammiraglio 1939 Glittering Blue Fountain Pen (zoom nib), a first-ever collaboration between Sailor Pen and Montegrappa sees Japan’s most coveted nibs united with Italy’s most exhilarating pens.  More than a century of high craft and mutual admiration culminate in a pen of remarkable lineage.  Revisiting a classic 1939 Italian design, two grand pioneers of fine writing bring 215 years of experience and inimitable class to a pen worthy of the highest rank.

Only just 80 pieces were produced and these are pieces with special nibs.  Celluloid barrel and sterling silver 925 trimming, piston filling.  All nib grades – EF, F, M, B & Zoom.

Fountain pen connoisseurs have long regarded Sailor nibs with almost mythical reverence – a cult status deeply intertwined with the legacy of master nib designer, Nobuyoshi Nagahara. This archive 1939 design has been carefully recreated by hand and modified to accommodate a range of exquisite, 6-millimetre Japanese-made nibs – each crafted from rare 18k gold in six variants, including the enigmatic Medium-Fine and Zoom grades.
