About Montegrappa Extra Hi Tech Limited Edition Fountain Pen
From 1930 to 2018 – Extra Goes Modern!
The Extra 1930 embodies all of Montegrappa’s strengths and qualities. It is a timeless form that defines all that an ideal writing instrument should be. In its ninth decade, it remains the conclusive statement of Montegrappa’s prowess and stands proud as the symbol of Italy’s oldest manufacturer of fine pens. And classic though it may be, the Extra 1930 has yielded variants which add to its history, by virtue of new materials, new colours, new attitudes.
Since its inception, the Extra 1930 has employed celluloid in its cap and barrel construction. In the modern world, some of the most exciting developments relate to alternative materials and fresh applications. Carbon fibre has changed the way designers consider everything from automobiles to audio equipment, while silicon ceramics and titanium have invigorated the watch industry. In recognition of the appeal of cutting-edge materials – both visual and practical – Montegrappa is pleased to announce the Extra Hi Tech.
A contemporary version of the classic Extra 1930 made with materials prized for their technological merit, the Extra Hi Tech features a dimpled cap and blind cap in solid aluminium. All trims, including the cap band, grip section, ring, thread and clip, with signature Montegrappa rolling ball end-piece, are fashioned from titanium. The barrel is formed of carbon fibre. The final item exudes a sense of utter modernity.
Owing to the nature of the chosen materials, the Extra Hi Tech offers a lighter weight than its siblings. It thus presents itself as the perfect writing tool for those who write for long periods, for whom any extra heft might be prohibitive. Once experienced, the sense of lightness and balance prove irresistible.
Tradition returns with the working elements: the Extra Hi Tech fountain pen is cartridge and converter fed, and is fitted with a solid 18ct gold nib with ebonite feeder. Challenging to manufacture, instantly desirable, the Extra Hi Tech will be offered as a limited edition of 250 fountain pens and 250 rollerball pens only.
