Montegrappa Leonardo da Vinci 500th Anniversary Fountain Pen LE
A tribute to the 500th anniversary of Leonardo da Vinci抯 death, Montegrappa抯 Leonardo da Vinci fountain pen, limited to 500 unique, numbered examples. The Leonardo da Vinci writing instruments are made in beautifully contrasting materials, binding nature with technology: fine, aged olive wood for the barrel and satin stainless steel with brass details for the pen cap and trim. The cap top is molded in the shape of a peg of the era in which Leonardo lived, representative as a principle element of construction and mechanics. The cap body and signature clip are made of stainless steel fashioned in fretworks according to da Vinci抯 major geometric theories and concepts. The cap抯 inner core is crafted in brass, the metal of choice for engineers during the time of da Vinci. Its intricate low-relief engravings represent some of his recurrent technical drawings.
The pens grip section in stainless steel is decorated with laser etchings of Leonardo抯 stereometric half-moons, the so-called transformations of the lunules. The fountain pen is piston-fed and its nib is made in 18k gold. Further to convey an appreciation of Leonardo抯 impact, the collection抯 packaging is interactive. It houses a dissembled scale model of da Vinci抯 fighting vehicle for the pen抯 owner to construct.

Italy's first pen manufacturer, Montegrappa, began manufacturing pens in 1912 in its factory in Bassano del Grappa - a picturesque town along the Brenta River, which flows through Alpine foothills in northeastern Italy. Utilizing natural celluloid and precious metals, Montegrappa combines traditional methods such as die-casting with more recent innovations as low-relief engraving to form their precious art objects. Whether they use colors reminiscent of the master painters or ornamentation suggestive of Baroque palaces, the Italian heritage and romance is infused into each product.
