Product Description

Montegrappa Limited Edition Wild Baobab Ballpoint
Discover WILD: Baobab Montegrappa “What you love - You will protect” is the mantra of an exotic new writing instrument made by Montegrappa in collaboration with National Geographic Explorers and Photographers, Uri and Helle Løvevild Golman. The Danish couple’s search for the world’s most elusive wildlife has earned them a formidable reputation. The pen is named WILD: Baobab – a reference to the tree that can store up to 120,000 liters of water in its trunk. The survival instinct of these icons of the African plains symbolizes the couple’s intrepid careers, and is an apt motif for an object with conservation at its core. Its subtle coloring and lightly bulbous silhouette mimic the Baobab using a unique artisanal resin with a low environmental footprint. A WILD Explorer expedition badge is engraved into the pen’s top; a striking feather-shaped pocket-clip represents the Golmans’ relationship which began when Uri gifted Helle a wing feather from a Snowy Owl. Since then, the couple has embarked on countless expeditions together and seen their work published in many leading periodicals. The couple’s fruitful career suffered a terrible setback in 2017 when they were brutally attacked in a crowded market. Three years on, Uri’s rehabilitation continues under Helle’s care, and the couple hope to return to the wild. From their Danish base, they have set up the WILD Nature Foundation – a non-profit with an ambitious agenda of conservation awareness and action. Montegrappa’s partnership with the foundation led to the Italian company inviting the Golmans to collaborate on the WILD: Baobab as a gesture of solidarity and strength. Besides guiding the pen’s design, a cache of the couple’s best work features wildlife from all seven continents on a set of deluxe postcards accompanying the limited release. WILD Baobab is a limited edition of 999 fountain pens with 18K gold nib, capped rollerballs and twist ball pens.
