As only the Italians could say it, PACE! When we were traveling in Italy several years ago, there were flags flying from every window with a bright rainbow with bold letters saying “PACE” which means PEACE. And today, of all days that is what I wish for you. The kind folks at Kenro are helping me make that wish extra special today by giving me a Montegrappa Fortuna Rainbow to give away to one lucky reader — the perfect holiday gift to usher in a new year full of happiness and peace. The pen is named after the Goddess Fortuna, the goddess of Luck and Good Fortune, most prophetic.
The Montegrappa Fortuna is stunning and I’m so honored to have gotten to see it in person before sending it along. The resin is so striking. The pen is weighty without feeling heavy (with converter unfilled and capped, it weighs 22gms which is the same weight as a Lamy AL-Star). It measures 5.375″ capped, 5″ uncapped and over 6.25″ uncapped (it exceeded the length of my pocket ruler so I’m guessing a bit here) but it does post! And there is no seam between the colors, they flow effortlessly from one to the other. When replacing the cap, the rainbow stripes line up without any effort too. Maybe I just get lucky but they seem to line up every time I put the cap back on. It’s really kind of riveting to look at. The nib is a medium and the engraving on the nib is unique to Montegrappa. Lovely.
The pen ships in its original packaging and box and is unused. I did not ink it up and comes with a cartridge converter and a couple cartridges and scarf of some sort that I did not remove from its package.
With love from Kenro and The Well-Appointed Desk!
