Torpedo Limited Edition Fountain Pen

CHF 1717.73excl. MwSt.

The Visconti Torpedo is a limited edition fountain pen inspired by an Italian design trend called Bolidismo that focuses on shape dynamism, early 20th Century Futurism and a reference to design strongly influenced by the world of fast cars. The Torpedo’s name alludes to both a sleek and sporting car and to the English term for torpedo – a shape designed by the need for speed.

The oversized Visconti Torpedo Limited Edition fountain pen is made from unidirectional Black Carbon fiber with highly polished Palladium-plated trim. It has an ogival shape of roundly tapered ends that is both dynamic and aerodynamic. It integrates two of Visconti’s traditional aesthetic codes for high-end pens: skeleton processing and the transparency of the demo models. The body features an Palladium-plated design pattern that enhances its sleekness and frames an oversized ink window so you can check the remaining ink in the barrel. The transparent acrylic resin window has been worked to align with the carbon fiber body, thus contributing to the fluidity of the design. The Visconti Torpedo has a double reservoir power ink filler system. The threaded screw-on cap can be posted. The Torpedo fountain pen is equipped with a 23-Karat Palladium Dreamtouch nib available in Medium size. This nib is suggested for expert writers as it adapts perfectly to your hand’s habits. It is very flexible and smooth, but with medium elasticity and resilience. There are only 388 pieces of this Limited Edition Visconti Torpedo fountain pen available worldwide.

Dante Alighieri Inferno Limited Edition Fountain Pen

CHF 5199.63excl. MwSt.

In Stock 1-3 days delivery

“The devil is in the detail” is a label often applied to Italian design, but the country’s oldest penmakers appear to be taking it literally. The newest extraordinary creation from Montegrappa features Lucifer himself on the base – chewing incessantly on Judas. The demon’s pointed tail seems to rise through the barrel and snake its way through the cap to form a pocket clip: the kind you might expect to see brandished by Robert de Niro in Angel Heart. This is no pen for the timid. Dante Alighieri: Inferno is the first edition from the Venetian maker’s new Divina Commedia writing series – a tribute to Italy’s most celebrated literary figure. 700 years after Dante’s death in 1321, his name rings eternal – even to the uninitiated. In Italy, he truly is immortal. By daring to write his most famous work in Florentine dialect, he paved the way for the use of a unitary language which later became the Italian.

The first volume from Dante’s epic trilogy is also the poet’s most vivid work, describing hell’s descending layers with equal measures of beauty, satire and gore. If biblical horror were a genre, Inferno would be its crown jewel. Montegrappa’s tribute spares little detail from Dante’s script, with the sins and punishments of hell’s nine circles recreated in intricate micro-sculpture. Sins of self- indulgence are represented on the cap by lust, gluttony, greed and wrath. The violent and malicious sins – violence, fraud and treachery – are reproduced on the barrel and blind cap. The artisanal process behind Dante Alighieri: Inferno is rarely found outside the world of fine jewellery, but Montegrappa’s command of lost-wax casting has made it a darling of aficionados. Iconic archive models like The Dragon (1995) and the skull-encrusted Chaos (2011) won plaudits for their bold and complex metalcraft and point to the maker’s pedigree in creating beauty from dark subject matter. With Dante exhibitions and tributes planned throughout Italy in 2021, the timing of Montegrappa’s release is both punctual and – after the torment of last year – oddly topical.

Whichever pen you choose, remember that each stroke of ink on paper is a personal journey, a mark of creativity, and a tribute to the art of handwriting. Embrace the elegance of these fine instruments, and let your words flow effortlessly onto the page. Happy writing!
