    Default Jony Ives pen

    I cant figure out what Montegrappa this is, but I am enthused to learn the most prominent industrial designer of our time uses a fountain pen: https://www.yankodesign.com/2022/05/...UlyNLtY5_9qPfw

    And not even a thousand dollar pen. It must actually be a tool for him.

    The original FT article had a link to the pen on the Montegrappa site and the Penaddict podcast had some interesting additional background information from Montegrappa about the pen and Jony Ive's fondness for the brand.

    The pen on Montegrappa's website.

    Really? It looks like one of the steel nib wooden versions that they were selling recently for about $300-400.
