Montegrappa introduces the Pen of Peace "in the spirit of Goodwill". The pen is limited to 1958 units to mark the year that the peace sign was created.
The peace symbol is on the top of the cap and the end of the clip in sky-blue enamel. The word "Peace" is engraved on the barrel in 15 different languages. Jake Weidmann, one the world's most skilled calligraphers, created the font used throughout to decorate the pen.
To resolve the issue of which of the 15 languages should be featured on the front of the pen, "the body contains a special mechanism fitted with micro-ball bearings that allow the barrel to rotate, so the user can position his or her language of choice at the front of the pen, lining it up with the clip."
The pen comes in fountain pen, rollerball and ballpoint formats.
The peace symbol, also known as the peace sign was ubiquitous during the late 1960s and most of the 1970s. Originally designed in 1958, by Gerald Holtom, for the British nuclear disarmament movement, the symbol was eventually adopted as a generic symbol of peace worldwide.
