Precisely 20 years after Montegrappa issued the first Cigar edition, Montegrappa has again honored this most elevated form of smoking with a new limited edition. Although tobacco usage has fallen out of favor, cigars remain a guilty pleasure for connoisseurs who appreciate the rich tastes and aromas.
Made in the special “Tobacco” celluloid, one of the 24 hues Montegrappa boasts in its archives, the Cigar pen resembles the subject with uncanny realism. The color was chosen for its particular combination of light brown with lighter, pearl streaks that resemble organic tobacco leaves.
Like an actual cigar, the pen possesses a roundish tip “to punch” and light up. A detail that adds to the cigar smoking-like experience is the fully functional puncher that comes out of the pen cap when the latter is pulled downwards.
Montegrappa’s Cigar Pen is offered with trim in Sterling Silver and is available as a rollerball. Production is limited to the traditional numbers of Montegrappa: 888 fountain pens in Silver. All Cigar pens are housed in special packaging in the shape of a tobacco leaf.
