Luxury pen designer Montegrappa celebrates the superior work of artistic creators with various collections of luxury pens, four of which are presented in this article. Montegrappa pens are for people who get excited by the script of a finely crafted writing instrument. The feeling is much like witnessing a spectacular musical performance, enjoying a special dinner, or being swept up in an epic story. These are all works of art, and we all know about the power of art.

THE TCHAIKOVSKY Writing instrument

Montegrappa’s Genio Creativo family of pens honors the greatest artists and thinkers from diverse creative disciplines. New to the pen family are two limited editions commemorating the composer and musical giant Pyotr “Peter” Ilyich Tchaikovsky (1840–1893).

The first Tchaikovsky pen, the White Swan, has an ivory white resin barrel decorated with an excerpt from Swan Lake’s musical score. The black resin pen cap has laser-cut engravings of Tchaikovsky’s portrait and signature. On the angled cap top is a prominent G-clef “sol key” bearing a diamond inset. The clip resembles a flute, said to be the composer’s favorite instrument. A Swan Lake ballet dancer is etched on top of the 18k gold nib.

The second pen is appropriately named the Black Swan. Matching the form of the White Swan, this pen features black resin for both the barrel and cap. Its sol key has a Swarovski crystal rather than a diamond. The cap is also engraved with Tchaikovsky’s portrait and signature. Finally, the black barrel features an excerpt from Swan Lake’s music original score in contrasting white.

Written with the Tchaikovsky pen, your artist statements will be rich in overtones, and your penmanship is sure to dance across the page!

THE CHEF PEN

Behind every great dish is a great chef. Montegrappa celebrates the culinary arts with its Chef Pen.

A prominent feature of the pen is the cap, whose shape mimics a white pleated chef’s cap. The pen barrel, made of resin to look like wood, features metal pegs like those in the handle of a chef’s knife. Also, the signature clip is fashioned in the shape of an actual knife.

You will create quite a show when you use the Chef Pen to sign your restaurant check or pay the caterer at your yacht party!

The GAME OF THRONES HOUSE STARK PEN

The epic storylines and grand characters of the hit HBO® series Game of Thrones have captured the imagination of fans around the world. Montegrappa’s collection of writing instruments represents each of the four key families in the drama: House Stark, House Baratheon, House Lannister, and House Targaryen. Each pen is custom designed for the family it represents. In this article, we feature Stark.

Considering House Stark’s northern origins, the color scheme of this family’s pen is a cold silvery white with crisp palladium accents. The clip is carved to be a dire wolf’s head, and the cap is patterned with a runic design. On the top of the cap is a profile of the dire wolf alongside the chilling Stark motto “Winter Is Coming.”

The ELVIS PRESLEY LAS VEGAS Writing Instrument

Montegrappa celebrates the work of Elvis Presley, a universally admired performer who transformed popular music in the mid-20th century. The fountain pen nibs are engraved with the full-height profile of Elvis at the microphone. Other details denote a specific stage of Elvis’ career.

White is the color for the pen of the Las Vegas period, noted for his  “Aloha From Hawaii” broadcast and his Las Vegas appearances in 1973. Both performances featured Elvis’s signature white jumpsuits with gemstone accents. The clip of solid 18K Gold is set with rubies, and other gold accents are of gold-plated sterling silver.

When you take this pen out of your pocket, you are proclaiming “Elvis is alive!”
