A Goulet exclusive! This Verde Altipiano is a limited production run of 200 pens, and is the second launch of this model to the world, following the successful Rosso Ciliegia.

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.

Revived exclusively for the Goulet Pen Company, Elmo returns after an absence of almost 75 years. The Elmo is a pen conceived to reawaken a love for penmanship, with charms to lure a generation more accustomed to texting. Its rewards are visual and tactile: the second model in a vibrant green Verde Altipiano resin to represent Elmo's birthplace, the Bassano region of Northeastern Italy. Altipiano means "highlands", which is a region near the Mount Grappa.

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 and includes a converter. 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 barrel is engraved with the period logo of Montegrappa, in a complementary tone. It completes a visit to the past, as an entry to a future rich with personal communication – created by the hand of the writer.
