Montegrappa Limited Edition Victory of the Whale Fountain Pen
On 20 November 1820, a sperm whale bull rammed and sank the American Whaler, Essex. Her fateful final voyage made global news at the time, before inspiring Herman Melville’s ‘Moby-Dick’. Two centuries later, Montegrappa joins forces with Sea Shepherd to recount her epic tale, and draw attention to humanity’s continued assault on ocean ecology.
Mahogany, celluloid and repurposed bronze recount the tale of the Essex, an American whaler sunk in 1820. Her epic encounter inspired Herman Melville’s Moby-Dick, and lives on in the lore of Sea Shepherd. The international direct-action marine conservation movement contributed bronze from its former flagship to a design nostalgic in stature, but revolutionary in posture. Together for the ocean!
