With activists leading anti-smoking campaigns with full fervor, puffing up a tobacco roll is hardly considered glamorous. However, the rebellious clan of cigar connoisseurs who are always on a lookout for divine tobacco creations still does exist. And here to cater to their guilty pleasures minus the tobacco, is Montegrappa, that recently re-introduced the traditional cigar in the form of its novel writing instrument.
Precisely 20 years after the brand introduced its first cigar collection, it is back to please the deluxe smokers (and writers) with the Cigar Pen. Designed to look just like its inspiration, the luxe writing instrument dons the cigar-like appearance in a light brown hue and pearlized streaks that resemble organic tobacco leaves. To nail the perfect form and size, it comes without a pocket clip and is sized 152 mm in length and 15.08 mm in diameter, much like the “Laguito n.2”.
To fool you further with its appearance, the Pen also dons a rounded tip along with a fully operational puncher that hides stealthily in its cap. Being a Montegrappa creation, the Pen boasts of obvious rich elements such as an 18-k gold nib with a quintessential filigree pattern. The Cigar Pen will be offered to buyers in Sterling Silver or 18k Gold trims in the fountain pen or rollerball versions. If all the cigar impersonation still fails to please you, the pen also comes wrapped in a special tobacco leaf packaging. Need we say more?
