Well after a long few weeks between ordering the pen and it landing on my doorstep, I'm pleased to say my Montegrappa Extra 1930 Arte Deco in shiny lines has arrived. I had been hoping for a slightly less expensive version of the shiny lines material to be used on a 1930 since the Extra Otto. As much as I loved the look of the Otto, I couldn't justify the price. Now that this model was released, and in a small limited edition number of 50, I decided the time was right to dip my toes into the Montegrappa waters and get my first Extra, Unboxing the pen I was immediately pleased that the celluloid pattern is even better in real life than in the photos so I thought I would share them with ya'll here. The pen is executed well overall with only the somewhat annoying ratchet piston mechanism spoiling the fun. I've also put together a short review on my blog here if you are interested.
Did anyone else pick this pen up? I feel like the 1930 doesn't get as much love as it should.
