A Goulet exclusive! This blue Brenta di Notte fountain pen is a limited production run of 300 pens, and is our third exclusive launch of this model to the world, following the successful Rosso Ciliegia red and Verde Altipiano green.

A world leader in the creation of fine writing instruments, since the Renaissance, Italy championed the fountain pen through the craftsmanship of Elmo. This was the name initially used from 1927 by Montegrappa, the world leader in the creation of the perfect tools for creating missives, jotting notes, producing a signature with a flourish. After an absence of almost 75 years, Elmo returns as a pen conceived to reawaken a love for penmanship, with charms to lure a generation more accustomed to texting.

Our third exclusive Elmo model comes in a dark blue resin.  The name of this pen, Brenta di Notte, is inspired by the blue waters of the Brenta river at night. The Brenta is an river that runs from the north in Trentino to the Veneto region. Thus Brenta di Notte – translated as Brenta at night – connects the color to the iconic river and its place in Bassano del Grappa, the home of Montegrappa. 

Every Elmo pen boasts the design values of the era that gave us the most elegant fashions and the most beautiful motorcars, a decade that to this day continues to influence architecture and fashion: the 1930s and the Art Deco movement that defined it. The Elmo pen therefore exhibits a classic form, ergonomically ideal for the smoothest writing sensation, but so chic that it deserves to be regarded as an objet d’art as much as it is a fine instrument.

In common with its Montegrappa siblings, the Elmo pen is made of the finest materials, is offered as a cartridge/converter fountain pen with a #6 JoWo steel nib. It includes a converter and two black Montegrappa short standard international ink cartridges. Each pen’s pocket clip terminates in a rolling ball to facilitate ingress and egress from one’s pocket. As a final touch, the pen’s cap is subtly engraved with the contemporary logo of Montegrappa, in a complementary tone.
