Muhammad Ali



Our Montblanc Great Characters 2023 collection honours Muhammad Ali, one of the most influential athletes and humanitarians of the 20th century. Three-time heavyweight champion of the world and a tireless advocate for civil rights, this collection of luxury writing instruments and stationery celebrates his achievements in and outside the boxing ring.

Nicknamed ‘The Greatest’, Muhammad Ali shook up the world with his strength, skill and charisma. Winning gold at the 1960 Summer Games in Rome at just 18 years old, he went on to be crowned heavyweight boxing champion of the world three times – a rare achievement. His greatest triumph, however, was his activism; sacrificing a long period of his career to stand up for what he believed in, Ali used his fame to advocate for civil rights and peace.


During his career, Muhammad Ali won the world heavyweight championship title three times; in 1964,1974 and 1978. Each of the three editions represents a victory.

The ultimate goal for every boxing champion; receiving the belt, holding it in the air and feeling invincible. The intricate design of the clip on each luxury pen captures these details.

“Float like a butterfly sting like a bee.” One of Ali’s most famous quotes is honoured with a butterfly engraving and a pointed cone to represent the bee.

Tape-like textures feature throughout the collection, in tribute to the art of boxing and Muhammad Ali’s distinct boxing style which surprised many opponents in the ring.
