 MONTBLANC

Vintage pen lovers know that rubber was an important material in the early days of pen making. Specifically, ebonite, a vulcanized rubber, was used by Montblanc and others for a variety of writing instrument applications, including bodies and feeds—and it is still in use today, though to a lesser degree. So it seems a perfect pairing for German luxury pen maker Montblanc to team up with Milan-based high-performance tire maker Pirelli, known for its rubber products since 1872, to produce a pen: the Meisterstück Great Masters Pirelli Limited Edition 1872.

Much like Montblanc’s master pen and nib artisans, who spend years honing their crafts, Pirelli’s sgorbiatori are true masters as well, still carving the virtually developed treads by hand in the surface of prototype tires. Their manual skill demands a high level of precision and flexibility, especially in the early phases of development when swift adjustments of tread design are crucial. Because of its respected standing, Pirelli has been sponsoring sport competitions since 1907, and it is the exclusive tire partner and supplier for the FIA Formula One World Championship and for the FIM World Superbike Championship among others.

The pen

The Meisterstück Great Masters Pirelli Limited Edition 1872 is a tribute to both the pen maker and the tire maker, and its design is a tasteful homage to both. The writing instrument’s rubber cap and barrel are engraved with a pattern inspired by a historic graphic treatment of the Pirelli logo, dating to 1966. The well-known elongated “P,” in use since 1908 and symbolizing the flexible qualities of rubber, is engraved on the handcrafted 18-karat gold nib above a tire with the Montblanc emblem at its center. Available as a fountain pen or rollerball, the pens’ matte finish is beautifully interrupted, I think, by the glimmer of the glossy ruthenium-coated fittings that act as a welcome counterpoint.

The color red is important to both brands: Montblanc with its early fountain pen, the Rouge et Noir, and Pirelli by establishing it as the emblematic color for its logo, with the exact shade codified in the 1990s to ensure its proper use. It is referenced on the Great Masters Pirelli Limited Edition 1872 by red rings, which add a bright accent to the pen’s cone and cap top. The limited edition, which comprises 1,872 pieces, is crowned by the Montblanc emblem in mother-of-pearl.

Earlier collaborations

This is not the first time Montblanc has collaborated with Pirelli, though it is the first time the two brands have joined forces to create a pen. The first capsule collection of limited edition travel gear was launched in 2019 at the Formula 1 Heineken Chinese Grand Prix. Last year saw the introduction of high-performance luggage with a black polycarbonate shell and rubberized red leather details. It features 360° degree ball-bearing wheels and mini tires created with a bespoke rubber compound, both developed by Pirelli engineers. This Montblanc x Pirelli limited edition even features wheel tread like that found on the P Zero™ Pirelli tires, and the brand’s well-known red logo is inscribed on them. Now that’s attention to detail.
