Montegrappa Limited Edition Q1 Fountain Pen
Montegrappa Limited Edition Q1 Fountain Pen respects no boundaries. It is unashamedly MODERNIST, and yet its roots are in the venerable art of handwriting and drawing. No space-age feeder system nor trick cartridge: Q1 is boldly and emphatically a fountain pen, and only a fountain pen. It embraces the most fluid and elegant form of writing instrument yet devised, but one with history. The REVOLUTIONARY aspect of Q1 is its presentation in a truly radical form, with features not found before in a pen.
A mere glance informs the observer, both pen enthusiast and casual onlooker, that this pen is pecial, original, GROUND-BREAKING. Its appeal in unapologetically masculine, yet its functionality is unisexual, for it boasts an amazing choice of materials and design, with the convenience of interchangeable colours. Above all, it is a TECHNOLOGICAL STATEMENT, an advance on all pens that came before it.
Q1 draws its design inspiration from the fascinating world of FIREARMS, exercised in a manner that shares a “STEAMPUNK” sensibility with Montegrappa’s “Grappa” Pen, also in the Cult Collection. While the purpose of weapons in combative, their construction and aesthetic have always been a product of function, allied to standards of manufacturing QUALITY, materials and finish that have been emulated by car makers, camera designers and now, by a pen producer.
Since 1912, Montegrappa has been manufacturing high quality writing instruments in the same historic building in Bassano del Grappa, North East of Italy.
