They may not explode… but they do conceal secrets. Luxury writing instrument maker Montegrappa creates a pair of collectors’ pens in honour of 007. The 007 Spymaster Duo is a fitting companion for any assignment. A fountain pen and roller ball with hidden design elements, handmade from precious materials in a numbered edition of just 380 pieces.
Montegrappa has been making the world’s finest writing instruments since 1912. Known for combining luxurious materials, high craftsmanship and individual flair, the company has been working in the same artisanal factory in Bassano del Grappa, Italy for more than a century.
At the start of the project, Montegrappa’s designers spent time reviewing props and design motifs from 007’s six decades on screen. The result is a pair of pens drawing on the best traditions of James Bond gadgetry and style. Each pen is fitted with a secret mechanism concealing a pair of polished metal 007 cufflinks. The Spymaster fountain pen carries its ink inside brass bullets engraved with 007, and comes with two pots of 007 ink and Montegrappa’s Swift-Shot ink filling system. This Q-style innovative reloading device uses hydraulic action to refill the cartridges swiftly and cleanly.
Rifling on the high-strength machined steel cap and upper barrel echoes the iconic gun-barrel, while the lower barrel is made of blackened alloy with a knurled, pistol-grip finish. The fountain pen features a 18K gold 8mm nib with custom-engraving. Each pen is numbered and housed in a custom-made travel case with secret compartments, accessories and a Bond family crest embossed journal.
