You are a big deal. You’ve negotiated the big art deal. Next, punctuate your success by using a big-deal pen to seal the deal. An Italian luxury pen by Montegrappa will confirm your discerning eye for artistry.

Celluloid and silver metal are Montegrappa’s trademark raw materials. Because of celluloid’s long and costly manufacturing process, only a few luxury brands use the material to produce pens. Further, celluloid pens have a luxurious look and feel that can’t be achieved with conventional plastics. Artisans will sculpt the silver metal, adding exquisite detailing and balanced weight.

The zero pen

The Zero Collection, available from The Pen Shop, features the sleek black designs of the Zero Ultra Black and the tasteful colors of the Zero Meteor Shower. Interestingly, the fine details of luxury watchmaking inspired Zero’s understated design.
