The world is now discovering something we Italians have known for a long time: that food and culture are inseparable. In this, the golden era of the gourmet, we salute those with an extraordinary passion for good food and fine wine. Cunning kitchen references are baked into every component of the Chef – a professional-grade pen guaranteed to delight wherever fine recipes are prepared, savoured or shared.
The Chef Collection is offered as both a fountain pen and a rollerball pen. Its most prominent feature is the cap – appropriately, if punningly – made of white resin in the form of a typical chef’s cap, complete with pleats. The cap top has been decorated with the profession’s logo and symbols, formed through contrasting laser-cut engraving.
For the pen barrel, a wood-facsimile resin has been adorned with metal pegs to resemble a chef’s knife’s handle, while the signature clip is moulded into the shape of a real knife, made from the same stainless steel as used for a real blade. The nib of the fountain pen is made of solid 18K gold and decorated with a Montegrappa filigree etching. The fountain pen is piston-fed filling from a bottle of ink.
Montegrappa’s Chef’s Pen will make the perfect gift for a family member or friend who loves to write as much as he or she loves to cook. Or eat.
