Japan’s near-mythical samurai represent the essence of the honour and commitment exhibited by the most heroic of fighters. Samurai formed the military nobility and officer caste of medieval and early-modern Japan. An early reference in the first imperial anthology of poems dates the samurai to the beginning of the 10th century.
Montegrappa’s Samurai presents a design challenge like none seen before. Limited to only 177 pens in sterling silver, each one unique, and a further seven in solid gold, the Samurai exists only as a push-system, piston-filled fountain pen, fitted with an 18k gold nib. It resides in a luxurious black lacquered box, with the ancient, original Chinese character for “Samurai” printed on top.
