Precisely 20 years after Montegrappa issued the first Cigar edition, Montegrappa has again honoured this most elevated form of smoking with a new limited edition. Although tobacco usage has fallen out of favour, cigars remain a guilty pleasure for connoisseurs who appreciate the rich tastes and aromas
In the modern era, with smoking no longer accepted in public, cigar lovers have formed clubs in major cities. Here, smokers can enjoy cigars in a manner reminiscent of the era of the original oil barons, railway magnates and other captains of industry, for whom cigars were mandatory accessories. Often, the smoking experience is accompanied by a brandy or other tipple.
Made in the special “Tobacco” celluloid, one of the 24 hues Montegrappa boasts in its archives, the Cigar pen resembles the subject with uncanny realism. The colour was chosen for its particular combination of light brown with lighter, pearlised streaks that resemble organic tobacco leaves.
Raden is a traditional Japanese decorative craft mainly used for lacquer ware and woodwork.
By working with small stripes of precious shell material, the artist of the Raden pen creates a beautiful, impressive piece of art. Each piece is truly unique.
The first step to create the fountain pen Raden M800 Royal Gold is to give the surface a deep black color impression by using the special Japanese Urushi lacquer. Then the typical stripes are made with particles from the precious white mother of pearl shell. A 24 carat gold foil is carefully affixed as background on these stripes. In the next step the stripes are fixed to the cap and barrel by a coating of laquer. Finally, the artist individually signs and numbers each fountain pen with the Maki-e technique, which used to be reserved exclusively for Japanese Royals as an indication of their power.
With the limited edition Raden series, Pelikan applies this wonderful Japanese decorative craft to the technical base of fountain pen models of its famous Souveraen series.
The Raden M800 Royal Gold fountain pens are pieces of art with finely-chased 18 carat gold nib in the size M, accentuated with a rhodium decor. Each fountain pen is encased in a traditional Japanese gift box which is made of Paulownia wood.
The Raden M800 Royal Gold will be available as from June 2017 in a limited edition of 388 pieces worldwide for € 1785.

Montegrappa, Italy’s oldest manufacturer of fine writing instruments, is proud of its heritage and has honoured all manner of Italian cultural touchstones, from grappa production to soccer to the Tricolore. With the contemporary classic, the Fortuna pen, as its base, Heartwood pays homage to that most Italian of values: a love of organic materials and the gifts of Mother Nature. The new pens explore the relationship between man and nature, a precious link that must never be undervalued.
Three versions of the Heartwood pen have been created to represent the range and variety of woods that hold special appeal for the connoisseur and the aesthete. The material is recognised globally as one mastered and elevated by Italian craftspersons. Montegrappa has embodied the gorgeous brown, black or tan hues of various woods in pen caps and barrels fashioned from organic wood materials, accented by brushed bronze-coloured trims.
Most popular with Italian woodworkers, and found in furnishings, in boats and even musical instruments are woods with distinctive grains and colours. One pen is fashioned of the darkest teak, walnut provides a pen with a nutmeg colouring while pear wood delivers a reddish cast.
Offered as fountain pens, rollerballs and ballpoints, Fortuna Heartwood pens remind us that – even in an age of wireless communications and high-tech materials – handwriting with instruments fashioned from elements provided by nature will always embody the essence of humanity.
With the purchase of each Heartwood writing instrument Montegrappa offers as a gift an exclusive notebook in recycle Woodstock paper, made in Italy by Fabriano
This collection will be available in our store in May, all pre-orders will receive a complementary Montegrappa ink bottle
Graf von Faber-Castell Pen of the Year 2017 - Vikings Platinum Edition
The new Pen of the Year tells the story of people who have had a very strong influence on our history: the Vikings
The new editiontells a story of an age and people whose deeds made a strong impression on the history of mankind. Our journey through time begins with a race of people living in the far north, who rose with breathtaking speed in the 9th century to become the greatest maritime power in the western hemisphere: the Vikings. Admired as daring masters of wind and wave, feared as ruthless invaders, valued as merchants, the Norsemen set up a trading network that linked continents, extending from Greenland in the west to the depths of Russia, from the arctic circle to the Mediterranean and the coast of North Africa.
The Maison Caran d'Ache and the horological laboratory MB&F, have combined their expertise for a unique creative odyssey: the Astrograph writing instrument.
Bound by a shared creative passion for mechanical excellence, the Maison Caran d’Ache and the youthful watch Maison MB&F have combined their expertise in developing the exceptional Astrograph writing instrument. This new creation pays tribute to the exploratory genius and childhood dreams that spark technical feats.
Creating the Astrograph was an authentic technical challenge to which the Maison Caran d’Ache teams rose with aplomb. Fine-tuning the concept called for four years of gestation and fruitful exchanges, while an entire year was devoted to developing the final model. More than 500 manual operations were involved in its production in the workshops of the Geneva-based Manufacture.
The Souverän Stresemann is dedicated to the foreign minister of the Weimar Republic, Gustav Stresemann (1879- 1929), who was honored together with his French colleague Aristide Briand with the Nobel Prize for Peace in 1926. The Stresemann suit is named after Gustav Stresemann. The classical Stresemann suit consists of a black/grey striped trousers and a single row jacket in black or anthracite. The Souverän of Pelikan is popularly known as „Stresemann“, that´s why Pelikan named the new Souverän black-anthracite after Gustav Stresemann.
Pelikan The Statue of Zeus Limited Edition
Inspired by ancient architecture, the Limited Edition piston fountain pen has been made with care and extreme attention to detail. Pelikan has used valuable 18 carat rose gold for the embellishments. Using painstaking artistic processing, the motif of Zeus has been worked into the barrel in 925 sterling silver, and finally all decorative elements have been plated with 18 carat gold in an electroplating bath. To finish, the motif and decorative elements had a clear varnish applied in order for the background to be colored with anthracite tones.
To create a gentle transition to the rose gold and emulate the ivory of the statue, Pelikan uses precious resin in a creamy white color for the grip section, filling handle section and lid. The decorative elements such as the trademark Pelikan beak clip and the decorative rings, as well as the pièce de résistance – the 18 carat nib – are all plated with rose gold. With this new Limited Edition piece, Pelikan once again creates a superior piston fountain pen which renews a closeness and proximity to writing. Each one of the 300 writing instruments is a unique one-off produced in Germany. Thanks to their firstclass craftsmanship and exclusive look and feel, they pay an exceptional tribute to this world wonder.
Every pen comes in an exclusive giftbox with a bottle of ink. Available as per 15.10.2016 for € 1930
