DESIGN

REVIVALIST FUSION

Connoisseur-grade materials and mechanical perfection are non-negotiable components of a design that recalls two landmark Italian styles. Made in 1915, the eight-sided Reminiscence was a pronouncement of Venetian manufacturing prowess, while the proportions of the Extra 1930 are considered epitomes of a golden age. Their perfect fusion proves there are few substitutes for experience.

SUBTLY SENSUOUS

Softly rounded edges and gently tapered form suggest effortless elegance, yet nothing could be further from the truth. Shaping the Extra Otto demands craftsmanship of the highest order. Expert hand-carving makes it possible to enjoy its sensuous lines in finishes of celluloid, hardwood, mammoth ivory and marble – ingredients at your disposal on the world’s only pen customization platform.

VERY IMPORTANT PEN

A handcrafted walnut presentation case lends the Extra Otto the permanence and presence it deserves. Personalise your purchase with an optional dedication plaque, or by engraving your initials onto the capband. Fountain pens are accompanied by a bottle of fine Italian ink – also available for personal engraving. Ten days is all it takes to transport your creative vision from drawing board to your desk.

INSPIRATION #EXTRAOTTO

TOWERING PRESENCE

Obsession with octagonal forms has been a constant of Montegrappa’s oeuvre for more than a century. The tower overlooking Montegrappa’s Cà Erizzo estate inspired the owners of Italy’s first fountain pen manufactory to create the Reminiscence. The filigree detailing on our 18K gold nibs pay tribute to their landmark 1915 design, and the century of innovation that followed in its wake.

THE POWER OF NUMBERS

From music to mathematics, nature to numerology, the number eight has fascinated minds both scientific and spiritual for centuries. The Extra Otto’s gently bevelled edges and graceful taper provide feedback and control beyond simple cylindrical forms, while putting an end to undesirable rolling. Montegrappa’s calculated craftsmanship ensures cap and barrel align perfectly, every time
