Celebrate the 50th anniversary of the moonlanding with this tribute fountain pen by Montegrappa. Produced entirely in aluminum with stainless steel trim, this fountain pen arrives in a remarkable replica of a lunar Sample Return Container. The pen features a super smooth JoWo #6 steel nib, accepts cartridges or a converter (both included) and ships with a branded polishing cloth.
Since 1912, for more than a century, Montegrappa has been manufacturing high-quality writing instruments in the same historic building in Bassano del Grappa, North East Italy.
