It is with a sense of both delight and mischief that Montegrappa presents to you the writing instruments commemorating the swashbuckling adventurers who terrorised the Caribbean during the XVI through to the XIX centuries – and who, to this day, provide us with legendary exploits and larger-than-life figures to entertain us in books and films (Johnny Depp's character, Captain Jack Sparrow, and Errol Flynn's Captain Blood).
Pirates is a series of the Cult Collection, honouring individuals and artists of the popular culture.
Brimming with intricate details, cap and body bear the legendary "Jolly Roger" sign with grinning skull and bones, also with a corsar's hat, and a sword serves as the pen's pocket clip.
The 18 kt gold nib is also decorated with the "Jolly Roger" and is offered in the writing grades of Fine, Medium and Broad.
Festooned with ropes and chains, the Pirates pens also feature guns, swords, tresure maps and doubloons as well as ships in full sail and a sinuous representation of the mermaid Syrena, whose fate was romantically interwoven with the notorious pirate, Blackbeard.
Each pen comes in its own "treaure box", finished in red lacquered wood, with black interior and the reproduction of a sterling silver pound on its cover.
