Montegrappa Classic Fortuna Fountain Pen, Black with Palladium Trim and Medium Nib
The artisans who create the high quality pens in Bassano del Grappa, Italy are rightly proud of the Montegrappa Classic Fortuna Fountain Pen, Black with Palladium Trim and Medium Nib. This is a pen in the classic tradition, with a smooth black resin cap and barrel and rare palladium trim. The deep ebony color sets an elegant mood; prepare to admire an impressive pen ready to sign important papers or write outstanding poetry or prose. An intricately etched medium width nib confirms the quality, while the white-silver palladium decorates the edge of the cap and provides a contrast where the barrel meets the section, beautiful and functional threads for the screw on cap echoing the band above. A rotating ring on the tip of the clip has a simple yet so-useful function as it helps the pen secure itself in your breast pocket, smoothing the way and avoiding any snagging or ripping. Refill with either cartridges or a piston converter and begin a faithful and successful partnership when you choose to buy this wonderful pen.
World War I was just ending as Montegrappa began its inspired history. Two famous American writers doing duty as ambulance drivers at the close of the conflict, John Dos Passos and Ernest Hemingway, made their marks with Montegrappas, penning missives home from Italy with the well-crafted fountain pens. They were some of the first famous personalities, authors, world leaders and diplomats to seize the day with a Montegrappa. Today Canadian writers can join these storied folk in jotting notes or the Great American Novel with one the pens we have collected at Fendrihan for your pleasure. Think about selecting one of these remarkable pens for yourself or for a truly special gift for a graduation, wedding, anniversary, promotion, retirement or any other life event that deserves a heart-felt commemoration.
