Montegrappa Espressione Fountain Pen

First there is a new range of pens called Memoria. An Italian word which mean memory.

Now, Montegrappa launced their Espressione with a new look and colors.

The first thing that attracted us is the mother-of-pearl resin materials that was used for the pen, and the plating used. Unlike other brand, Montegrappa chose to use rhodium plating, which will maintenace it beauty and shine as look as there is no bad scratch on the trimming.
