Montegrappa holds the honor of being the oldest Italian manufacturer of fine writing instruments in the world. Founded in Bassano del Grappa, Italy in 1912, it has been developing writing tools in the same historic building from which it originated. To consolidate its position as the premier manufacturer of luxury pens, Montegrappa has continued to produce a flow of limited editions commemorating events, locales and individuals. Bruce Lee and Muhammad Ali are two of the timeless icons Montegrappa has honored in their collections. Their pens have not only paid tribute to history, but have been a part of it as well. Famous Italian leaders such as Victor Emmanuel III have historically always used Montegrappa pens. Russian leaders of the last parts of the 20th century, specifically Boris Yeltsin and Vladimir Putin, have also used Montegrappa pens to sign official papers. Russia’s current president, Dmitry Medvedev, sings all official and political documents with his Montegrappa Extra 1930 pen. The manufacturing of Montegrappa pens is a lengthy and complicated process that mostly consists of innovative processes unique to Montegrappa itself. Techniques such as a custom deep drawing, low-leaf engraving, hand-etching, die-casting, and cold enameling are used. In addition to its limited edition pieces, inspired by great moments in history and ancient passions of mankind, Montegrappa produces humble pen collections for those who simply want to indulge themselves with a daily luxury.
