  1. Currently there are many excellent pens being made in Italy and modern Italian pens have captured my heart. I have been a fan of the beautiful Aurora pens for some time and lately the uniquely special offerings from Scrittura Bolognese have enthused me even more. I have a few Leonardos and even two (!) of the very first Radius 1934 pens. I have been delighted with them all because of their beauty, the quality of the nibs and overall manufacture, and most of all the pleasure of writing with them. I didn’t have a Montegrappa, however. Today I set that right and it is truly extraordinary and, I h

  3. In these reviews I attempt to be as to-the-point as possible to give the reader a quick idea about the aspects of the pen that stood out to me. The Good: Montegrappa has been spot on when it comes to the overall build quality of the pen. A lot of attention has been paid to details and everything feels polished and refined. The cap threads are very smooth. The nib writes really well out of the box. It is smooth and wet and I did not have to tune it whatsoever. I believe the nib is made by JoWo. The size and weight of the pen make is feel like a robust and substantial pen in the hand. The desi
  4. With the recent Stipula Etruria thread that was posted in this sub, I thought it was high time we had a dedicated photo thread for the Montegrappa Extra. This can include the earlier Classica and Historia models, along with the more modern variants including the Extra, Extra 1930 and Extra Otto. The key here is to share what you have no matter the size of your collections or your photography skills, so that we may appreciate, discuss and enjoy the variety of trims, nibs and colours these exquisite pens are available in. My hope is that this will breathe a little more passion into this model
  5. At the risk of sounding like SBRE Brown...I'm interested in a written Shootout of the Italians! I'd like to hear from people who have tried both the Montegrappa pens (especially the Elmo) and the Leonardo Officina Furore, both with steel nibs. I am keen to give myself incentive to finish a book proposal, and a lovely new pen awaiting my future might do the trick. https://www.gouletpens.com/collections/montegrappa-elmo-fountain-pens/products/montegrappa-elmo-fountain-pen-blue-cross-gentian?variant=30719087771691 https://goldspot.com/collections/leonardo-furore/products/leonardo-furore-fountain

  7. Sarah, Duchess of York has released 1 fountain pen model in 3 colours (blue, yellow, orange) with Montegrappa. It's a limited edition and only 100 pens are available of each colour. From the website: "Duchess of York - Visions of Nature Brilliant colours and joyous detailing evoke the natural kingdoms of Ocean, Forest and Garden. In these places of solace and inspiration, beauty lies idly… awaiting discovery. Writer and humanitarian, Sarah, Duchess of York, reflects on nature’s wonders in a rare collaboration. Pretty, sterling silver friezes fuse with effervescent celluloid in a silhouette
  8. Pen Pit Stop : Montegrappa Game of Thrones – House Stark Welcome to the Pen Pit Stop. Here you will find reviews of pens that already have some mileage on them. More specifically, these reviews are of pens that are in my personal collection, and that have been in use for at least a year. I thought it would be fun to do it this way - no new & shiny pens here, but battered vehicles that have been put to work for at least a year. Let's find out how they have withstood the ravages of time. The fountain pen that arrives at the pit stop today is the "Montegrappa Game of Thrones -

    Montegrappa Piston Problem (Le)

    Hi everybody! Does anyone know how to disassemble Montegrappa(piston or piston emulated filler) from a limited edition series? This is MG La Traviata Sterling Silver. The piston does not work(don't move by knob), probably a broken stem. The knob rotate is very easy. There is no access from the pen unit hole - there is a steel thin hole. I don't know how to remove the piston knob, there are no keyhole slots like on Pelikan/Aurora/TWSBI and there are no wedges like on Omas or vintage pens. Anyone got any good ideas? Thanks! https://images.vfl.ru/ii/1567439176/e7cb6aeb/27738321.jpg https:/

We do accept paypal (regina.martini@t-online.de). best regards Regina Martini
  12. Hi! I would like to know if the nib and feeder of the Classica are the same size than those of the Symphony. Thanks
  13. I came across this online article from a publication I was not familiar with (inside Hook) about Montegrappa offering pen customization options from their web site. Very strangely, the author who had some knowledge of fountain pens and collecting, made no mention of the many smaller pen manufacturers who have been doing this for some time. The piece made it made it sound like this was an entirely novel business concept. Perhaps it is for large pen companies (I have no idea how big Montegrappa is in comparison to other manufacturers) but it's not a new idea. I looked for a way to contact the au

    How It's Made - Montegrappa

    We started a new series on our Youtube channel where we visit manufacturies of fountain pens and take a look at how they produce their products. The first in this series is Montegrappa. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=a4IdVjrksMc
  15. During my summer visit to Montegrappa in Bassano, Italy, I took the opportunity to have one of my Extra 1930 medium nibs swapped for an extra-fine. My insider friend, Peter, had told me that they had a last EF nib of the previous generation, a beautiful two-toned nib with the gold hallmark reading *1140MI, made in Milano during the Richemont governance of Montegrappa. I know that Montegrappa nibs differs from most other Italian siblings being in general narrower than you expect from their nominal width, in a way more similar to eastern nib grades. I have two F nibs (none in the 8 size of the
  16. Hello fellow Italian pen friends! We went to Italy to meet with the director of Montegrappa and talked with him for a little while. Since there was a camera in the room, we recorded it and we can show it to you! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sYoOZlyPR9E Enjoy watching!

    Montegrappa Extra 4 Nib

    what is the best replacement for a 1942 Montegrappa extra 4 nib? The one I have is beyond repair, but the Atlantica 1942 pen. is came with is such a beauty I'd start using it immediately when I can find a suitable nib.
  19. hello all, I hope you are having an amazing day now on to the pen. The best I can make out of this pen is that it has the elmo inscription making it a Montegrappa pen but other than that I have no clue on what else it is any information would be helpful pictures will be included in the links provided. https://prnt.sc/mfkqfj https://prnt.sc/mfkqc3 https://prnt.sc/mfkqdv https://prnt.sc/mfkre1

    Montegrappa Nib Tuning?

    I have a much loved Montegrappa Extra fountain pen given to me as a leaving present about 15 yrs ago but it's seldom used as the ink flow is a bit heavy, its a medium nib , I wondered if there was anything to do to slow the ink flow or maybe try a 3rd party fine nib to suit my writing style better? I'd like to be able to use the pen a lot more rather than leave it in a desk drawer for another 10 yrs. Any advice would be much appreciated - where to get a replacement fine nib (not sure I could afford a montegrappa replacement at the moment) or tune the nib to slow the ink flow?
  22. This is my own pen. I did not receive any compensation for this review. This pen is available for hire from me through pensharing.com. Looks, description, build quality, dimensions The Montegrappa Desiderio has a resin body, cap and section. Clip and finial are sterling silver (with another small sterling silver band within the section). The number 4 nib is 18k and features the octagonal Montegrappa motif and name. Yes, you read that right – a number 4 nib. More of that later. The feed is ebonite. The Desiderio comes in a choice of finishes: Black body & cap; red section, cap band an
  23. hey Guys, i have a chance purchasing this nice pen, which in my opinion looks just amazing. BUT! i have read lost of information here on FPN and in other reviews.. some people state it is a pistonfiller, others that it uses the converter inside (and you can not take it out or swap it). If that is true in my opinion in this case converter is the worst filling technology for the price of the pen like that. It seems quite suspicious as when you turn the knob up till the end it still sturns, and would not stop. So which one is it 1. a pistonfiller 2. a hidden converter which you just

  25. Hello, I'm a new fountain pen user currently I was given as a gift from a colleague a Montegrappa nerouno medium size My question was at times when I'm writing I write at a slight slant and the pen would stop feeding ink and I couldn't continue to write unless I readjusted the angle, so I was wondering why this was and how I could mediate this. The ink I'm currently using is quink from Parker (black) I'm sorry if this is posted in the incorrect location, I'm still trying to navigate through the forums, if it can be moved please do so or let me know thank you. Thank you for reading, The
