Well hold on to your wigs and saddle your pigs! Check this one out:

And yet another featured on Bulgarian TV (Why do I find myself humming the song from the Tinman in Oz "If I Only Had A Brain"?:

And if you're a Supernatural (TV) Fan, you know the Angel version isn't that much better. :P

Whoa.

I agree though, this seems a natural yin-yang partner to the Chaos. If you already have one, you may want the other!

That aspect of the show is pretty accurate - other bits not so.

wow ... I really love Montegrappa pens but .... 

 

... these videos are of such poor quality and make no sense at all ! 

 

 

My best guess would be that these videos are NOT from Montegrappa but someone else, that desperately tries to kill the brand, published them ...

I hope this is the case. It would be the only logical explanation.

 

Oh dear, the Bulgarian ad is even worse than the others...

Yep. :D (I wonder if they have two completely different design department, one for people made of money and one for people who actually plan to use the damned things).

Tooth brush will work. And you can also buy the cheaper NeroUno standard. But visually I like the Linea (the original, not the RoseGold)

I'm wondering if it wasn't preferable to leave Montegrappa under MontBlanc. At least they would have enjoyed a sounder marketing policy and possibly a bit more guidance. It looks like a schizophrenic company by now...

Weed is not what these people are smoking. Take your pick of any household chemical and you might get this pen as a result...

While you might not like the pens, if you stopped and looked at the workmanship and craftsmanship you would likely agree that it is superb.

 

Not all tastes are the same.  Bubba Watson was wearing a watch at the masters that I would not wear even if it were free and I was at a convention of blind folk but it sells for a very high sum. I will acknowledge that the technology of the watch is amazing but it is still butt ugly.

 

Few companies do better engraving and casting in precious metals with greater detail than Montegrappa and while you might not like some of their efforts it is hard to deny the quality.
