DESIGN

REVIVALIST FUSION

Connoisseur-grade materials and mechanical perfection are non-negotiable components of a design that recalls two landmark Italian styles. Made in 1915, the eight-sided Reminiscence was a pronouncement of Venetian manufacturing prowess, while the proportions of the Extra 1930 are emblematic of a golden age. Their perfect fusion proves there are few substitutes for experience.

SUBTLY SENSUOUS

Softly rounded edges and gently tapered form suggest effortless elegance, yet nothing could be further from the truth. Shaping the Extra Otto demands craftsmanship of the highest order. Expert hand-carving makes it possible to enjoy its sensuous lines in finishes of celluloid, hardwood, mammoth ivory and marble – ingredients at your disposal on the pen world’s only customization platform.

VERY IMPORTANT PEN

A handcrafted walnut presentation case gives the Extra Otto the permanence and presence it deserves. Personalise your purchase with an optional title plaque, or by engraving your initials onto the capband. Fountain pens are supplied with a bottle of fine Italian ink – also available for personal engraving. Ten days is all it takes to transport your creative vision from drawing board to desk.

In 1915, the tower overlooking Montegrappa’s Cà Erizzo estate inspired the owners of Italy’s first fountain pen manufactory to create the Reminiscence. The filigree found in the detailing of our 18K gold nibs echoes this landmark design, and the culture of bold innovation fomented by its creation.

Montegrappa’s calculated craftsmanship ensures cap and barrel align perfectly, every time
