One of the most striking details of the Montegrappa 2010 Bruce Lee fountain pen to go on sale at Bonhams is the medium 18-carat gold nib that is elegantly engraved with a silhouette of the karate icon in action. The nib features the profile of Lee in one of his most famous moves, foot and fist extended, and suspended in the air. Marking the 70th Anniversary of his birth, the legendary martial art instructor certainly can appreciate the homage paid to him with this design.
The brand has paid honor to this action icon by presenting this re-introduction of one of their most coveted pens, “The Dragon”. The actor was born in the hour of “The Dragon” in the Chinese horoscope. Fifteen years after the first release, this new pen may resemble the original, but certainly has been designed with a style all its own.
