Living in the Southeastern United States I’m about has far away from winter as possible, but knowing that Winter Is Coming and Game of Thrones Season 7 is only weeks away is keeping me cool this summer.
The other thing keeping me cool: The Montegrappa Game Of Thrones Targaryen Fountain Pen. One of the challenges in our industry is doing branded products well, and Montegrappa handled this one well.
Game of Thrones fans will recognize the four primary Houses - or families, for those not familiar with the show. Baratheon, Lannister, Stark, and Targaryen are the players, and Montegrappa has woven in their colors and sigils into a wonderful lineup of pens. We have covered the ballpoint and rollerball pens previously, and I’m up to bat with the fountain pen review.
If you ask me which House will claim the Iron Throne in the end, my money is on the Targaryen’s, or a Targaryen/Stark tag team to take down the Lannister’s and dispatch of White Walkers. The Baratheon’s are mostly dead, although their pen may be the best of the bunch.
The Targaryen’s though, that’s where it’s at. Daenerys Stormborn of the House Targaryen, First of Her Name, the Unburnt, Queen of the Andals and the First Men, Khaleesi of the Great Grass Sea, Breaker of Chains, and Mother of Dragons would be proud to carry this pen and write the names of those she defeated in their blood.
The pen is made from metal and resin, giving is a sturdy feel, but not too heavy. The bronze section and finials give it a nice balance, and the matching colored steel nib sets it off nicely. It is a fantastic writer too. I love the lacquered red artwork and details on the pen, and the Fire and Blood emblem on the top looks like it would make a perfect wax seal.
If there is one issue with this pen it is the price. That’s what happens when you license one of the top franchises in the world. You can buy a lot of pens for $350, but if you are a Thrones fan and a pen lover this series is very well executed. Just like Ned Stark.
