Montegrappa -- purveyors of luxury fountain pens, watches, cufflinks and other men’s accessories -- is one of the oldest manufacturers of Italian writing instruments in the world. The company was founded in 1912 and named for Monte Grappa, the famous mountain that rises high above the landscape of Bassano del Grappa; a quintessential “Italianness” is at the beating heart of the brand. Montegrappa crafts limited edition and custom made pens as well as beautifully crafted fountain, ballpoint and rollerball pens. They’re highly coveted by pen connoisseurs and celebrities alike: fans and collectors range from Ernest Hemingway to Elvis to Frank Sinatra, alongside modern-day pen lovers like Al Pacino, Michael Jackson, Michael Schumacher -- and Pope John Paul II. Sylvester Stallone is a brand ambassador so devoted to Montegrappa that he has designed his own line of pens and watches: the highly limited edition Chaos, a writhing whirl of Renaissance-inspired sculptural glory. Their current limited edition pen, which is Batman themed, is a particular favorite.
Make your words count with masterfully-crafted pens by brands like Montegrappa and Chopard.
