I do love the bamboo celluloid of the Extra, absolutely stunning, congrats on the pickup.

 

Here's another green Extra that was hastily shot the other day. Marbled celluloid on marble is good combination right?

Hmm, not sure gold was the right choice there. Looks like cut granit through a magnifying glass. I like that aspect.

Agree with Uncial....like the stone like look of the main material....nothing against metal sections, but at least in photo, the rose gold section is quite dominating visually to my eyes....but might be OK in person.....

https://www.kenroind...otto-sapphirus/

I find the main material truly interesting, even though I have no idea about the weight... In the photos the metal finish looks more bronze than rose gold, which is not bad either.

However, I would warn Montegrappa about abusing of the classic lines of the Extra 1930 and Extra Otto in too many finishes. The original choices in the 1930, in Marbled Green and Turtle celluloid, then Black Bamboo and subsequently Black and White (the last three coexisting), offered over an arc of fifteen years, seemed more reasoned and made of those pens truly classics. The same is true for the Otto, which for years was only offered in Malachite, Shiny Lines and Zebra celluloids.

It seems to me that there may be a risk of an overexposure of the Extra, which could be perceived as a less classic and less exclusive pen, good for all tastes. Montblanc took sixty years to introduce a change in the trim color of his Meisterstück 149 ...
