Montegrappa delights in honouring iconic individuals who have shaped countries and the world with their bold ideas and remarkable lives.
Lech Wałęsa is one such person, and we salute him with a limited edition Excellentia writing instrument in a calibre to match this astounding man.
His life has been inextricably linked with the history of Solidarity and Poland’s path to freedom. He guided the country to a non-violent victory over the Communist regime and in 1989 established the first non-Communist government on the Eastern side of the Iron Curtain. Years of defiance, negotiation and relentless work went into this achievement and today he continues to be an inspiration to fellow men.
Our Pen embodies his life using form, colour and exquisite detail. The barrel is blood red, the colours of Poland and Solidarity. Embellishing the barrel is hand crafted silver metalwork showing the outline of the Polish shipyards where the movement was born. The word 'Nobel' and the year '1983' is engraved in recognition of the Peace Prize he was awarded.
The cap contrasts magnificently in white. The pocket clip is an anchor representing the Monument to the Fallen Shipyard Workers, situated in Gdańsk. The Polish eagle coat of arms adorns the top of the cap. For a perfect finishing touch, a silhouette of the great Polish leader's face is etched onto the nib of the fountain pen.
Crafted in celluloid, we offer this instrument in a rollerball and fountain pen option. 1983 limited edition fountain pens in Sterling silver highlight the year of his award and 70 limited edition rollerball pens in Sterling silver represent his current age.
To this day, Lech Wałęsa travels the globe calling for the building of a modern world founded on universal values. Listen to his story of Poland and be inspired.
