      MONTEGRAPPA MIYA EBONITE

      Limited Edition – Exclusive Release

        Ebonite Miya

       High-caliber mechanics, classic form and dynamic handling combine in an exclusive small-batch edition from Italy’s style supremos. With qualities to set purist pulses racing, the Mia Ebonite shows once again why Montegrappa is where the rubber meets the road.  

       When it comes to true handcraft, nothing separates the practitioners from the pretenders better than a solid, small-batch release. Montegrappa’s recent catalog has included a string of low-denomination editions made for the curious connoisseur. For this latest excursion into nostalgist nirvana, its craftsmen have turned to premium German ebonite to infuse a classic silhouette with masculine grunt.

       Like celluloid (an in-house staple) ebonite is steeped in vintage mystique. Invented by the Goodyear brothers in 1851, this vulcanised hard rubber compound featured extensively in early-century Elmo pens produced in Montegrappa’s Venetian factory. Advancements in technology may have created industrial efficiencies, but few modern solutions can mimic the honesty and intimacy of early-generation industrial materials.

       Keen-eyed aficionados will recognize the three mottled ebonite colors from 2019’s WWI-era reissue safety pen, the Mia Carissima. Rich-grain Brick Red, Blackcurrant and Petroleum provide a choice of housings for Montegrappa’s patented 32-tooth click-wheel piston-fill mechanism. This North American exclusive comprises only fifty numbered examples of each, and writers can select from a line-up of 18K gold nibs in four grades with ebonite feeders, or high-flex 14K gold.

       Ebonite’s chemical composition causes sterling silver to tarnish, requiring trim materials to be substituted with high-grade stainless steel. Using Montegrappa’s much-loved Miya silhouette as a starting point, the Mia Ebonite features scaled-back hardware to reinforce its workmanlike honesty: adding grit to glamour. Besides its ultra-true writing performance, Montegrappa’s hallmark rolling-sphere brass clip is the most potent reminder of the Mia Ebonite’s privileged provenance.

       What are you waiting for? Rediscover Italian handcraft with true rubber soul.

      Miya 450 represents the end of an era

      Miya 450 represents the end of an era

      The word that comes to mind when one encounters the Montegrappa Miya 450 is stately. There is just something about this pen that elicits awe in even the most novice of pen lovers. The more veteran pen aficionado recognizes that the material it’s made from, antique celluloid, represents the end of an era. As celluloid becomes less available, replaced with modern materials like acrylic and resin, its desirability increases.

      Made from celluloid taken from the vault of remaining blanks at Montegrappa’s headquarters in Bassano del Grappa, the Miya 450 is a reminder why so many fountain pen enthusiasts are hot on the trail of anything released in this scarce material.

         

      It’s classic, it’s luxe and the colors are rich and vibrant. Like the most brilliant gems, the celluloid flashes light as one turns the pen in their hands.  The feel when writing is warm and oh so comfortable. It’s a substantial pen, but not bulky.

      The pen has a 14K Gold Nib and is available in XF-Broad, XF Flex and Fine Flex. It is trimmed in engraved sterling silver. Adding to the Miya’s cache, only 450 pieces have been made due to the rarity of the material. It is subtly detailed and yet, a true attention stealer. This is a rare find for any ardent fountain pen lover or your favorite Italophile.
