Montegrappa pays tribute to Leonardo's engineering genius with beautifully contrasting materials, binding nature with technology: fine, aged olive wood for the barrel and satin stainless steel with meticulous brass details for the pen cap and trim.
The cap top is molded in the shape of a peg of the era in which Leonardo lived, representative of a principle element of construction and mechanics. The cap body and signature clip are fashioned into fretworks according to da Vinci’s major geometric theories and concepts.
The cap’s inner core is crafted in brass, the metal of choice for engineers during the time of da Vinci. Its intricate low-relief engravings represent some of his recurrent technical drawings. The pen's grip section is decorated with laser etchings of Leonardo’s stereometric half-moons, the so-called transformations of the lunules.
In further appreciation of Leonardo’s impact, the pen's packaging is interactive. It houses a disassembled scale model of da Vinci’s fighting vehicle for the pen’s owner to construct.
Limited to just 500 numbered pens, the Leonardo da Vinci sports an 18K gold nib and arrives in a beautiful box featuring da Vinci's artwork.
From machines of war to telescopes, musical instruments to early robotics, Leonardo’s ambition and talent knew no boundaries. Left-handed, he was also an enigmatic writer, annotating his drawings with mirror script written right to left. The new Leonardo da Vinci edition writes conventionally, but celebrates the maestro’s technological prowess through its design and presentation. The combination of materials evoke Leonardo’s sense for the fluid relationship between nature, art and science. References to his achievements in geometry, astronomy, engineering and architecture feature throughout the piece.
Nib Material: 18K Gold
