You Can’t Pay the Iron Price for These Incredible Game of Thrones Pens

If you’re a Game of Thrones fan who loves to write notes and send them by raven, then Italian writing instrument maker Montegrappa has just the perfect pen for you. It is called the Winter is Here edition.

The pen has an extremely intricate exterior that makes it a work of art, carved from pearlized great celluloid and “enveloped by a masterful study in the ancient art of lost wax casting.” It is a beauty that’s for sure.

The Night King and a White Walker are engraved on the pen’s barrel with ice-blue apatite crystals for eyes and on the pen’s cap, and the ice dragon Viserion is carved in precious metal, over a ring of blue-crystalline hand-glazed flames. The dragon wraps around the pen cap and the head with the tongue of ice is the pocket clip.

It is available in your choice of fountain or rollerball, and in sterling silver or solid 18K gold. The silver model is limited to 300 units, while the 18K gold has an ultra limited run of just 7 units.

These pens aren’t cheap, mind you. The sterling silver version is €4,500 (~$5,080 USD) a pop for the fountain and €4,050 (~$5,570 USD) for the rollerball. The gold one will cost you €48,000 (~$54,270 USD) for the fountain, or €51,000 (~$57,680 USD) for the rollerball.

Montegrappa’s DC Comics Pens Still Have That Montegrappa Price

When most people need to buy a pen,  they spend a few dollars for a 10 pack of Bic ball-points. Some style-conscious rich people like to buy pens from companies like Montegrappa, which charges a few hundred bucks for a single pen. That said, those pens are made of precious metals and other nice materials, rather than just some cheap plastic. It’s the kind of thing that Bruce Wayne uses to signs contracts.

Of course, Bruce Wayne probably wouldn’t opt for a pen with a sculpture of Batman on it, but I can think of some people who would. If Technabob’s writers all worked out of a single office somewhere, we’d need a few. Aside from Batman, Montegrappa is also offering pens in the style of the Green Lantern, the Joker, the Penguin, the Riddler, Superman, Wonder Woman, or Catwoman. Actually, now that I think of it, Bruce probably wouldn’t mind another chance to run his fingers over that leg of Catwoman’s. That’s the one he’d go for. Which is your favorite?
