Montegrappa's Icons series of writing instruments pays tribute to cultural giants, regardless of the fields in which their character and achievements lifted them to global awareness.

Launching the series is an individual who figures prominently in any list of the 20th century strongest, most influential personalities, the man who revolutionized boxing on every level: Muhammad Ali.

Born Cassius Clay in 1942, the young Ali won six Kentucky Golden Glove titles and two Amateur Athletic Union National Titles, while reaching international prominence with the Light Heavyweight Gold Medal in the 1960 Summer Olympics in Rome. Before the age of 18 his record was 127 wins with 5 losses.

To reflect elements of Muhammad Ali's varied, eventful career, Montegrappa has integrated a number of characteristic details into the Icons "Tribute to Muhammad Ali" pen. The nib sports the raised arms silhouette of the victorious boxes, above the name "Ali".

Finished in white pearlised resin with a black stripe running in its length, the barrel bears the colors of his boxing shorts.

In order to achieve the desired black and white effect, Montegrappa employs a state of the art material with unique properties. These include half the weight of glass of the same thickness, excellent optical clarity and light transmission properties, the ability to withstand temperature extremes at different altitudes and superb flexural strength for superior resistance to breakage. Equally important, the material also proves warm to the touch.

To achieve this each Muhammad Ali writing instrument uses the finest materials they can source, the two contrasting colors consisting of an Italian triple density white pearl along with a British super high density black. A complex process readies these for use in the pens, including a full range of heat treatment process.

Limited edition
Montegrappa Icons Tribute to Muhammad Ali limited edition addresses key elements of his life. 1942 is the year of his birth. He fought 61 fights. He won 56. His wins by knockout numbered 37. Guided by these figures Montegrappa has issued 1942 fountain pens and 1942 roller balls in resin with sterling silver trims, 61 fountain pens with gold trim and 56 roller balls with gold trim.

Also available is an exclusive "knock-out" edition gold trimmer and set with diamonds in the cap's end piece of which only 37 fountain pens and 37 roller balls will be produced.
