Chatterley/ Montegrappa Extra Otto Thuya (Burl) Wood Limited Edition Fountain Pen
Introducing the Montegrappa for Chatterley Extra Otto Thuya (Burl) Wood Limited Edition Fountain Pen. This Otto is made from beautiful Thuya Wood.
We designed this pen last year pre-covid when we visited Montegrappa in Bassano Del Grappa and Ive been patiently waiting for them ever since.
The process of the wood curing takes a long time, so this was part of the delay. Not only does the Italian wood company pre-cure the wood rods, but after that Montegrappa also cures the wood after its cut into parts in their ovens for months in order for it be as stable.

Below are group pictures of all three Ottos we commissioned at the same time.
Among the many signature details of Montegrappa products, including the pocket clip with roller for easy ingress to and egress from pockets, the octagonal shape has long been a part of the Italian house’s design language. In 2012, the year of its centenary, Montegrappa revived the use of the eight-sided geometric shape that recurs throughout its designs.
Octagon now characterises numerous Montegrappa writing instruments, including the Reminiscence, the Privilege, the Symphony, the Emblema and the NeroUno. For 2014, the octagon has been applied to the most enduring of the company’s pen ranges: the Extra 1930.
In adapting an octagonal cross-section to the legendary Extra 1930, Montegrappa has created the Extra Otto. The octagon is the example of geometric perfection that has long provided Montegrappa with a timeless motif, one that also provides its own unique feel and level of comfort for writers who bond with their favourite pens.
Made of celluloid, the natural material that is employed in the manufacture of the finest pen barrels and caps.
All Extra Otto fountain pens are fitted with 18k gold nibs. The trim on all Extra Otto writing instruments is made from sterling silver, and Montegrappa’s signature octagonal motif is engraved on the cap’s band. Extra Otto’s clip, fitted with the company’s roller, also boasts its own secret: a red lacquer backing.
