Nancy Olsen of Quill & Pad gives us an over of the new Montegrappa David Bowie Blackstar Fountain Pen.
“The design of the pen is influenced by well-known British graphic designer and typographer Jonathan Barnbrook, who is responsible for the spare and cryptic Blackstar sleeve – the first that doesn’t include an image of Bowie. Barnbrook also designed the album sleeves for some of the musician’s earlier works…
We are pleased to introduce the Otto Hutt design07 in Gold Trim.
This pen marks a first for Kenro and Otto Hutt, as it is our initial offering exclusive to the US market.
The design07 is signature Otto Hutt, using form and functionality combined in an energetic body. The pen is sleek and stately, with clean lines, shapes, and a truly elegant instrument for daily writing.
This limited production exclusive has been made using the same jewelers’ techniques that are the signature of the Otto Hutt brand. The design07 in Gold Trim is made of sterling silver and has been engraved with a honeycomb guilloche pattern, creating movement as the light hits the facets as it glides across the page.
For this version of the design07 the palladium clip, ring and grip section, have been plated in gold and the custom size 6 nib is two-tone in silver and gold. The pen is postable with the signature Otto Hutt spring clip and can be used with both an international standard cartridge and converter. A rollerball made with the same gold trimmed appointments is also available.
As with every Otto Hutt writing instrument, no effort has been spared with regards to detail, materials or thoughtful mechanisms and because of this, the design07 Gold Trim is as beautiful as it is useful.

The summer street festival is as much a part of a New York summer as a Yankees game, hot dogs with mustard from a streetcart, open fire hydrants and a soft serve ice cream truck parked on the corner.
It is with great pleasure that we announce the return of the Fountain Pen Hospital Pen Fest, a summer celebration that also kicks off the 75th Anniversary of FPH and the reopening of our remodeled showroom.
The team from Kenro, and all their new releases and limited editions, will be in attendance and if that weren’t enough our good friend, and pen reviewer extraordinaire, Penboy Roy will be in the house to tell you what’s on his mind.
We hope you will join us for this auspicious occasion of friends and pens, Wednesday and Thursday June 16th and 17th from 10:00 to 3:00
