Montblanc Limited Edition (1581)
Homage to Homer
Fountain Pen


Μῆνιν ἄειδε, Θεά, Πηληϊάδεω Ἀχιλῆος οὐλομένην, ἣ μυρί Ἀχαιοῖς ἄλγε ἔθηκε
Sing, O muse, of the rage of Achilles, son of Peleus, that brought countless ills upon the Greeks.

This is the famous opening sentence of the Iliad, the classical Greek epic poem by the blind rhapsodist
Homer (8th century BC). To Homer, the founder of Western literature, Montblanc dedicated this Limited Edition. There exist only 1581 pieces worldwide, which refers to the year 1581 in which the first great translation of the Iliad appeared.



The barrel of this impressive fountain pen has the shape of a horse, thereby referring to the Trojan horse. The Iliad tells how the Greek soldiers conquered Troy by hiding inside a big, wooden horse, which was presented to the Trojans as a gift. Once the horse was taken inside the city, the Greeks got out and overpowered their surprised enemies. Thereby, this writing instrument also is an ode to Odysseus, the great mythological heroe who came up with the idea of the Trojan horse.

The shape and size of this piston fountain pen are based on the iconic 149-model of Montblanc. The clip has the shape of a spear, which refers to the Trojan War and the famous armor of Achilles. Both the clip and the fittings are champagne gold coated, and the head of the Trojan horse is engraved on the 18-karat gold nib (see image). Both the barrel and cap of the pen are made of matt coral-coloured precious resin, and on the top of the cap is the Montblanc emblem in mother-of-pearl.

The nib is immediately available in the size Medium and Extra Fine. The nib sizes Fine, Broad, Double Broad, Oblique Medium, Oblique Broad can also be ordered, but contain an extra 14 days delivery.
