Montegrappa Miya 450
For those of you that are fans of the PenBoyRoy fountain pen review channel, it is no secret that I am a huge lover of fountain pens. It’s also no secret that I can be very critical of fountain pens. Some have called my reviews “unforgiving”. Some would be one hundred percent correct. It’s for this reason that I feel my thoughts on the Montegrappa Miya 450 are relevant. Here goes.
It’s a celluloid pen. No big deal right? Wrong. It’s more than just a pen made of celluloid and therefore costs more. No. In my opinion, this pen surpasses any other pen in terms of aesthetic, due to the beauty of this material. Are there other pens on the market in the same price range? Yes. And those pens sure do share the pedigree of the Miya. But none are a Montegrappa. Normally, I’m not one to be
seduced by mere brand name, but this pen makes me care. It’s that good.
Top all that off with a 14 karat Jowo flex nib that writes like a sexy savage, I simply couldn’t be happier. This pen has become my favorite pen, be it an everyday pen, drawing pen, or grail pen. It’s a work of art, and I can easily spend hours on end staring at it like a weirdo in the eyes of my coworkers. They may not understand what I’m doing or why… but I know you do!
Be well. Be safe.
