Mightier Than the Sword Limited Edition Collection
Ernest Hemingway was one of the most innovative and influential writers, reporters and novelists of the 20th century, one who wrote, coincidentally, with Montegrappa pens. The collection bearing his name consists of four exclusive editions; each of these chapters embodies a pen of its own, offered in the three types: fountain, rollerball and ballpoint.
The Hemingway Collection is divided into four “chapters”: “The Soldier”, “The Writer”, “The Fisherman” and “The Traveller”. Each of these chapters of his life is embodied in a pen, offered in the three types, including fountain pen, roller and ballpoint. In keeping with the accoutrements of the era, the packaging itself has been inspired by the notebooks used by reporters during the First World War.
Each model in the four topics is a limited edition of 100 examples, totaling 300 pens for each subject. All pens in the series will be produced in celluloid with sterling silver trim. In addition to the silver editions, 10 examples of each of the three pen types, in each of the four chapters, are trimmed with 18k gold.
Celluloid colors were chosen to create the mood for each model: Bamboo Black for The Soldier, Turtle Brown for The Writer, Mediterranean Blue for The Fisherman and Charcoal Black for The Traveller. The trims are produced in diamond-cut Sterling Silver, personalized with Hemingway’s signature and the Montegrappa logo around the cap.
Embellishing the pocket clip, cap and barrel ends are symbols defined by the subject of the pen. For The Soldier, the barrel end shows Bassano’s bridge, military symbols and the Red Cross Ambulance. The Writer prominently features a typewriter. The Fisherman bears the symbol of the marlin, also one of Hemingway’s signatures. The Traveller is adorned with airplanes, maps, sea lighthouses and exotic palms. All invoke the spirit of the writer who single-handedly transformed modern writing.
