A professional-class Sailor nib in fine Italian attire, tailored with customary Montegrappa flair presents the Ammiraglio 1939!

Malachite fountain pen design and craftsmanship are more than skin-deep. Along with two parallel centuries of tradition come two highly evolved sets of standards, each finely tuned for proprietary use. As a consequence, the technical teams in Bassano del Grappa and Hiroshima faced challenges to deliver a writing instrument capable of living up to its own lofty promise. Nicknamed ‘the Admiral’, we’re confident you’ll agree it truly embodies the best of both worlds.

The creation began with a gesture of friendship and Montegrappa’s constant desire to defy conventions. A 2017 meeting in Hiroshima revealed the deep levels of empathy and respect between two companies,and a common emphasis on nuance as the source of superlative writing experience.

The reverence many connoisseurs harbour for Japanese calligraphy and nibs often approaches mythical proportions. Sailor’s preeminence and its cult status is deeply intertwined with the legacy of masternib designer, Nobuyoshi Nagahara. Today, his son Yukio oversees production at the Sailor Pen manufactory, and it is under his personal supervision that an extremely limited consignment of special nibs was created for this first-ever collaboration.

This 1939 design from Montegrappa’s private museum collection has been carefully recreated by hand and enlarged to accommodate a range of exquisite, six-millimetre ultra-precision Japanese nibs. Realised in 18k gold – a rarity in Sailor Pen’s repertoire – they are serviced by Montegrappa’s patented piston-fill system in a true dream-team combination. For devotees of Italian writing style, the enigmatic Medium-Fine and Zoom grades promise a delightful departure from the norm.

No detail has been overlooked in the exterior of the Ammiraglio 1939. Richly ornamented, 0.925 sterling silver trims decorate a luxurious body hand-carved from premium Mazzucchelli celluloid and emblazoned with the period-correct Monte Grappa insignia. Weight, balance and finishing have all been realized to Montegrappa’s exacting standards.

Very few will have the privilege of knowing how it feels to hold a master-built pen backed by two centuries of leadership. Congratulations on being one of a select group. We hope the pleasure it brings reflects the expertise and goodwill invested into its creation.

As is to be expected from a pen more than a century in the making, availability is extremely limited. Referencing eighty years since the model’s introduction, the Ammiraglio 1939 fountain pen is available as a limited edition of only 80 units in each of the following celluloid colors: Butterfly, Glittering blue, Charcoal, Malachite and Turtle brown.
