Occupying the 6th position in the Chinese Zodiac, the Snake symbolizes such character traits as intelligence, gracefulness and materialism. When it comes to decision-making, Snakes are extremely analytical and as a result, they don’t jump into situations. They are effective at getting the things they want, even if it means they have to scheme and plot along the way. Snakes are very materialistic creatures, preferring to surround themselves with the finest that life has to offer. This is especially evident in the home, where luxurious furnishings and surroundings help Snakes seek the peace they need in order to thrive.

Influential, motivated, insightful, and highly intellectual are words that best characterize Water Snakes. These Snakes work well with others and enjoy being recognized and rewarded. They’ll reveal feelings to those closest to them, but no one else.

Inspired by the Chinese Oriental Horoscope signs, the Montegrappa Snake 2013 writing instruments will be decorated with elaborate die-cast overlays in one of two precious metals. The limited edition collection is available as only 888 fountain pens and 888 rollerball pens in resin and sterling silver overlays, and only 88 fountain pens and 88 rollerball pens in resin and solid 18k yellow gold overlays. Fountain pens will have ebonite feeds, 18K gold nibs, and piston-filling systems. Nibs will be available in extra-fine, fine, medium, broad, double broad, oblique medium, oblique broad, and stub. Every piece will be numbered and will be offered in elegant wooden presentation boxes.

The first Snake pens will be available for delivery by the end of March 2013. All orders will be dealt with on a first come, first served basis. Fountain pens will be priced at $2,600, and rollerballs at $1,900.

    All I can say, is that it is not as ugly as the chaos. Not that that is saying much. Though I was born in the year of the snake, so I should like it I just can’t.

    I’ve neither the money nor the inclination. I like pens, I don’t need them to signal across the room when I can write a note.

    Pens like this always fascinate me… only because I wonder who out there buys them and when they actually use them! Or if they actually use them, I suppose.

    For sure not a pen to wear in the shirt pocket. Very flashy and pompous. I find the Caran d’Ache Snake pen less sensational but still exclusive and would prefer it over the Montegrappa.

    I don’t care for gaudy pens, and this is surely one. I think I’d rather bring home a real snake ;)
