Giveaway: Montegrappa Fortuna Rainbow Fountain Pen

Montegrappa Fortuna Rainbow

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.

  1. Wow what a stunningly beautiful fountain pen! It is so pretty that I don’t think I could NOT want to share it’s potential love. Even at this price tag, I would like to think that I could bring myself to go into a room full of people and get everyone to write a note of love and peace with this pen without hesitation.

    In the remainder of 2016, and in the upcoming new year, I wish humanity the strength and courage to tackle whatever it is that stands in the way of our inner peace.

    I wish us the ability to notice the little bits of magic that shine even the slightest light on our days. Even the toughest, hardest days behold such light if we can raise our heads to take note of it. It could be just a sliver… But the tiniest sliver could have the potential to start a ripple or a wave.

    I wish wholeheartedly that humans will continue to band together and hold each other up in the darkest of times. I hope that we take the smallest flickers of light and cast them out to our surroundings. We have nothing to lose by sharing love and light.

    May we share our love and support and remain empathetic to those around us. And, let us all remember the plight of those less fortunate and not ever forget to count our blessings.

    Peace and Love to ALL!
