"Once upon a time..." The Montblanc Writers Edition Homage to the Brothers Grimm is dedicated to Jacob and Wilhelm Grimm and celebrates their work on German and European folktales, among which are some of the most famous fairy tales such as "Snow White", "Cinderella" and "Sleeping Beauty". The overall silhouette of the writing instrument is shaped like an old hiking stick, while the black color resembles the darkness of the woods which usually serve as the main stage for the Brothers Grimm’s folklore. In addition, the wave-like pattern on the cap and barrel is inspired by Rapunzel’s hair while also resembling roots, since the Brothers Grimm viewed their linguistic work as "research into roots". The cap is crowned by the Montblanc Emblem in precious resin. The platinum-coated clip, reminiscent of a knobby piece of wood, surprisingly reveals the silhouette of the profile of the Brothers Grimm when turned. As an homage to the magic of storytelling, the handcrafted 18K solid gold nib with rhodium coating bears the flames of a fire, which was often the setting where folklore stories were passed on.
Nib Material: 18k gold with Rhodium coating
Filling Mechanism: Piston
