Enchanted by the mystique of the Chinese zodiac, Montegrappa pays homage to the culture by dedicating a line of pens to this particular strand of cultural astrology.
Each of the 12 animals in the Chinese zodiac take life on the body of the colorful, piston-fed fountain pens and rollerballs. Utilizing unique hand-embellished overlays, a technique perfected with the introduction of Montegrappa's limited editions, these outstanding writing instruments incorporate hand-embellished overlays with an 18k gold nib and a brass constructed piston filling mechanism for an incomparably smooth writing experience.
The Snake, sometimes characterized as "small dragons," can symbolize intelligence, wisdom, creativity, and serenity but can lack scruples. The fountain pen features beautiful, deep red resin wrapped in a sterling silver die cast snake motif and set with a carnelian stone in its eye to bring the design of the pen.
Nib Material: 18k Gold - Medium
Filling Mechanism: Piston
