Montegrappa unveils the Caduceus pen
November 7, 2016: The Caduceus symbol - a rod embraced by two intertwined snakes and a pair of wings, is globally understood nowadays to represent the medical profession. The Caduceus pen, offered as a fountain pen, roller and ballpoint, is made of snow White resin and finished with palladium trim, all to represent and wish health and prosperity.
Joining the original white resin Caduceus is the new Caduceus Black. Made, too, of resin and accented by trims in palladium, the colour as used in the spirit of Fortuna ignores its dark side by addressing its positive qualities.
A perfect complement to the Caduceus white, Caduceus Black features a colour that creates a sense of mystery. It is also believed to represent protection against emotional stress, and provides comfort by hiding vulnerability. In this manner, it is also believed to absorb negative energy – and that is the hope in Fortuna.
The Caduceus Black enjoys contrasting trim, which highlights the Caduceus clip. Its cap top is embellished with the 1912 logo, while the fountain pen’s nib is inscribed with the Montegrappa filigree pattern. The pen is offered as a fountain pen, roller and ballpoint; the fountain pen is available with Fine, Medium and Broad nibs, and is either cartridge or converter-fed.
