About Montegrappa Nazionale Flex Fountain Pen - Zebra
The Montegrappa Nazionale returns, visually remaining entirely faithful to the original style of the 1930's model, with this limited edition of just 100 pens being produced in black and silver celluloid. The pen's design is enriched with black resin details on its junctions and blind cap, the material being the superior modern substitute for ebonite, made without sacrificing the correct "look." Trim is necessarily in Sterling Silver. Its mid-section metal ring is engraved with the brand logo, while the pocket clip ends up with a decorative teardrop element, augmenting the vintage feel.
"Nazionale" is a model name that was a part of the Elmo catalogue, from the late 1930s. It oozes with Art Deco attitude, its colours evoking the era with exquisite tints and shadings. Now highly collectible, the Nazionale has inspired Montegrappa to revive it with a key feature not available eight decades ago
What has changed is the nib, the most crucial functioning part of any pen, to ensure that its "write-ability" matches the expectations of the modern user. The new Nazionale Flex, is so-named because it is fitted with a flexible nib that allows different types of hand-writing and calligraphic experiences to be performed with the same writing instrument by simply applying more pressure to the nib.
For enhanced flexibility, the nib is made of 14k gold, and is available only in the grades of Extra Fine and Fine, as it accomplishes the rest on its own, according to how it is applied. The nib's cut-out shoulders offer comfortable curving, for an enhanced writing experience. Also in keeping with the era during which the Nazionale was born, which predates cartridges, this fountain pen's filling system is piston-only.
The Montegrappa Nazionale Flex is presented in an elegant wooden storage box complete with a bottel of black Montegrappa ink.
