The new Montegrappa Samurai Limited Edition is a fountain pen collection as captivating as the noble warriors who inspired it.
The Samurai Limited Edition is heralding a new series of pens from Italy’s oldest manufacturer of fine writing instruments. Aimed at the most passionate of pen enthusiasts, Samurai is the first model in the Warriors collection. According to Montegrappa, the collection is “conceived to recognise the most noble combatants throughout history, those who fought to change the course of human events.” Warriors will feature the most significant and intriguing soldiers the world has seen.
The Samurai pen is a masterpiece in burnished sterling silver, made by cutting-edge developments of the ancient lost-wax technique, with certain design elements further embellished with rose-gold plated details.
The ultra-luxurious writing instrument in sterling silver is produced in a Limited Edition of 177 pens in sterling silver, each one unique, and 7 in solid gold.
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. Inside one will find the Samurai “doll” pen, accompanied by a bottle of ink and a Katana-sword accessory that acts as a fully-functional paper-cutting knife.
Continued examination of this work of art will reward the observer with a plethora of minuscule delights. Montegrappa’s artisans have reproduced the traditional “kuwagata” helmet, the “sode” shoulder and “kote” sleeve armour and the “tekko” arm and “suneate” thigh guards with the utmost accuracy and precision. The warrior’s “kusazuri” skirt is reproduced in multi-layered, embroidered fabric.
