Montegrappa Ernest Hemingway 'The Soldier' Limited Edition Fountain Pen

Hemingway Pens Herald A New Collection From Montegrappa

Montegrappa’s limited editions are conceived to provide their discerning owners with a taste of Italy, to feel the presence of the great masters who passionately breathed life into their works and made them immortal.

Among the limited edition series produced by Montegrappa is a brand-new Collection named Mightier Than the Sword, joining the Cult and Icon collections in honouring individuals of great cultural impact and influence. As the name implies, by glorifying the pen and the written word, the candidate is a special person who has enriched and enhanced life by contributing to mankind through philosophy, politics, the arts and other fields.

Prominent among the subjects of the Mightier Than the Sword Collection will be writers, politicians, national heroes and other notables. It is therefore appropriate that The Hemingway Pens form the first family in this new series. Ernest Hemingway was one of the most innovative and influential writers, reporter and novelists of the 20th century, one who wrote, coincidentally, with Montegrappa pens.

The first to be inaugurated is Ernest Hemingway – one of the most innovative and influential writers, reporters and novelists of the 20th century, and one who wrote, coincidentally, with Montegrappa pens.

The Montegrappa writing instruments collection named after the author is divided into four exclusive editions: “The Soldier”, “The Writer”, “The Fisherman” and “The Traveler”

Each of these four retells a particular life period or passion of his and is embodied in a pen, offered in the three types – fountain, roller and ballpoint pen. Each model in the four topics is a limited edition of 100 examples, totaling 300 pens for each subject. All pens in the series are produced in celluloid with Sterling Silver trim. Only 10 examples of each of the three pen types are trimmed with 18k Gold.

Of particular significance in the history of Montegrappa is Hemingway having spent time during World War I in Bassano del Grappa at Villa Cà Erizzo, next to the pen manufactory. One of his greatest works, A Farewell to Arms (1929), was inspired by his relationship with a nurse during his time in Veneto and many of the descriptions of the area draw inspiration from the views of Bassano, and so is The Soldier pen.
