THE MONTEGRAPPA Q1: THE 21ST CENTURY FOUNTAIN PEN

A MASTERPIECE OF WRITING GENIUS. THERE IS ONLY ONE PLACE TO FIND THIS PEN IN THE ENTIRE WORLD....PENPORIUM!

MONTEGRAPPA Q1 FOUNTAIN PEN, SILVER (MEDIUM NIB) - ISQ1N_TC

After two years of research and the patenting of its innovative design, the Montegrappa Q1 is a pen for the 21st Century combining practicality and toughness with luxury and high-quality construction.


Launched at Baselworld 2015, Q1 is Montegrappa’s most bold statement yet of its commitment to broadening the notion of a modern fountain pen. Though created without a precedent, the Q1 pen joins Montegrappa’s Cult Collection for it intrinsically embodies the concept of “cult” in its definition beyond “a special interest group or sect.” In this context, Q1 creates its own following, for its concept and appeal reflect wholly original thinking and practice.

Q1 respects no boundaries. It is unashamedly modernist, and yet its roots are in the venerable art of handwriting and drawing. No space-age feeder system nor trick cartridge: Q1 is boldly and emphatically a fountain pen, and only a fountain pen. It embraces the most fluid and elegant form of writing instrument yet devised, but one with history. The revolutionary aspect of Q1 is its presentation in a truly radical form, with features not found before in a pen.
A mere glance informs the observer – both pen enthusiast and casual onlooker – that this pen is special, original, ground-breaking. Its appeal is unapologetically masculine, yet its functionality is unisexual, for it boasts an amazing choice of materials and design, with the convenience of interchangeable colours. Above all, it is a technological statement, an advance on all pens that came before it.
Q1 draws its design inspirations from the fascinating world of firearms, exercised in a manner that shares a “steampunk” sensibility with Montegrappa’s “Grappa” pen, also in the Cult Collection. While the purpose of weapons is combative, their construction and aesthetic have always been a product of function, allied to standards of manufacturing quality, materials and finish that have been emulated by car makers, camera designers and now, by a pen producer.

Fusion is the key, with Q1 marrying ultra-tough and hard titanium for the pen’s barrel with titanium and fine Italian leather for the pen cap, Stainless steel has been employed for the internal parts of the pen, while tradition demands that an 18K gold nib with filigree Montegrappa logo is fitted at the writing end.
A plethora of intriguing technical details ensure that the user will return again and again to the Q1 to discover fresh features. The Montegrappa octagonal pattern on both leather and titanium creates a contrasting surface with a different tactility to that of the matte-finish barrel. The cap locks onto the barrel with a slot-and-pin system reminiscent of a gun scope or camera lens. The arched pocket clip features the signature ball end-piece for smooth ingress and egress to and from pockets.
Q1 is the fruit of two years research, which culminated in the invention of a unique multiple cartridge loading system. Entirely contained within the pen barrel, this mechanism allows the user to change ink colour swiftly after a quick flush through of the pen and with the use of the included syringe. However, those who want to add a touch of intrigue to their writing may choose to simply let the ink change colour without cleaning between, the first colour steadily merging into the second as you write. he mechanism, similar to the one of a bullet cylinder in a gun, is contained entirely inside the pen barrel and is the subject of a registered industrial patent.

A stunning piece of modern craftsmanship that shows the future of the fountain pen to full force, the sleek, contemporary aesthetic and increased functionality of the pen makes the Q1 a very interesting investment. Powerful, durable and of course finished with the Montegrappa flair, the Q1 is taking the humble writing instrument into the next generation with style.1 will be produced in an edition of only 100 pieces, and will be available only in a fountain pen mode. Appropriately, the Q1’s packaging is as exclusive as the fountain pen itself. Inspired by the robustness and functionality of an ammunition case, the chest is made of wood, with soft lining to protect the contents. It is fitted with a number of compartments to accommodate both the pen and its accessories, including auxiliary hardware for its continued maintenance: a pair of gloves, a set of tissues and spare ink cartridge.

Limited to only 100 pieces and only available as a fountain pen.

Features
  • The Q1 is a marriage of ultra-tough titanium and fine Italian leather for the pen barrel and cap. Stainless Steel has been employed for the internal parts of the pen, culminating thus into a complex mechanism similar to the gun’s bullet cylinder. A truly worthy contraption for a registered industrial patent. Functionality? Swap colours with ease. Styling? Like no pen ever before.
