Montblanc pays tribute to Jimi Hendrix, one of the most famous musicians of the 20th century and one of the most influential guitarists in the history of pop music. The eggshell white of the precious resin cap and the engraved pattern are inspired by one of the guitar straps worn by Jimi Hendrix. The black body, on the other hand, is adorned with an elegant pattern and is reminiscent of a wah-wah pedal. The platinum-plated clip is angled and shaped like the tremolo of an electric guitar. Another outstanding detail is the platinum-plated cap ring, inspired by a 1960s guitar cable and adorned with the engraved date of a famous Jimi Hendrix concert. The handmade nib in rhodium-plated 585 solid gold features a portrait of Jimi Hendrix.
To match the fountain pen, Montblanc offers a biro a la Jimi Hendrix. Here, too, you will find the beautiful details in the cap, including the engraved pattern in the style of his guitar straps, which Jimi Hendrix wore. The Montblanc emblem in the cap top is made of precious resin.
“Once upon a time, a long, long time ago …” The Montblanc Writers Edition Homage to Brothers Grimm is dedicated to the Brothers Grimm and pays tribute to their writings of German and European fairy tales, the most famous of which include “Snow White”, “Cinderella” and “Sleeping Beauty”.
The writing instrument is shaped like a walking stick and the black colour is reminiscent of the darkness of the forests, which are among the most important settings of Grimm’s fairy tales. In addition, the wavy pattern on the cap and barrel is inspired by Rapunzel’s hair and at the same time represents a nod to the roots, as the Grimm brothers considered their work a “return to the roots”. The cap is crowned by the Montblanc emblem made of precious resin.
The platinum-plated clip, reminiscent of a gnarled piece of wood, quite surprisingly shows the profile of the Brothers Grimm when you turn it. As a tribute to the magic of storytelling, the handcrafted 750 solid rhodium-plated gold nib features a depiction of fire, around which people often gathered in the past to tell and pass on their fairy tales.
Guilloches – ornamental patterns of fine, engraved lines – originally adorned precious watches and accessories such as the legendary Fabergé eggs. Graf von Faber-Castell uses this traditional jewelling technique to transform the writing instruments in the Guilloche series into true pieces of jewellery: The precious resin barrel is given a filigree pattern line by line, then further refined in manual lacquering and polishing processes. The Guilloche models are available in many expressive colour variations and in a rhodium-plated finish.
