About Montegrappa Ernest Hemingway Limited Edition Ballpoint Pen - The Soldier (Sterling Silver)

Ernest Hemingway was one of the most innovative and influential writers, reporters and novelists of the 20th century, one who wrote, coincidentally, with Montegrappa pens.

The collection bearing his name consists of four exclusive editions - The Traveller, The Soldier, The Writer and The Fisherman. Each of these chapters embodies a pen of its own offered in three types: fountain pen, rollerball pen and ballpoint pen. The Soldier edition is dedicated to Hemingway's years as a young soldier in Italy and is made in Bamboo Black celluloid with precious metal engravings commemorating the Great War and the author's personal experiences. Each model in the four topics is limited to 100 exclusive items per model. In addition to the Sterling Silver editions, 10 pens of each type are trimmed with 18ct solid Gold.

Engraved in the appointments you will find a depiction of Bassano del Grappa's famous bridge and city landmark, the Ponte degli Alpini. The Red Cross ambulance is also visible, accurately recalled as a Ford Model T as driven by Hemingway. Monte Grappa, the mountain, serves as the backdrop and Montegrappa Tu Sei La Mia Patriaäóîthe title of a song written in 1918, the year Hemingway stayed in Bassano del Grappaäóîis engraved above. Hemingway's initials grace the fountain pen's nib, while the pocket clip features an Alpine edelweiss motif. The cap crown is decorated with a likeness of the medal for valor, which Hemingway received when injured in Italy. In keeping with the literary theme, the pen comes in special packaging reminiscent of a reporter's notebook similar to those used during the First World War.
