This pen comes in an impressive gift box,
worth of a much expensive item.
Nice looking makes an example of what kitsch can be.
Quite to see here an Art Deco design and much more easy to see a Mondrianesque parody. Too hard to snap, that reminds the same problem in the Faber-Castell Loom. As a writing instrument, it does it right, nice, fluid and wet. Looks like a pen you can keep in your collection just for the love of novelties. The nib is nice, mainly if you
As all my Pelikans, very wet and very good. The look is a vintage charm. Blue marbled with no trim ring at the piston knob. I bought this pen at the vintage market of Tel Aviv, clean it, filled it and from then on is in my personal pen holder along with the everyday pens.
This pen is the epitome of every possible technical achievement in fountain pen making. From the great look of his piano finish until the perfect nib everything is perfect. A heavy pen, very impressive and almost frightening to handle. One of those objects that I'm proud of have in my collection. This is a very wet pen that asks me "use me and you'll see".
Few pens have so many promises of being "sport" and fulfilled it as this pen does. Heavy, impressive and shouting. The nib is black, a great touch to the whole design. Although a very "macho" look is very sensitive to scratches, so the best you can do is taking it with you, show it, but use another pen.

A nice clean and shinny finish, quite heavy but good balanced, not recommended for those who wan to cap and uncap the pen easily. Bought it in Sofia more or less at full price but objects are like milestones for me. Again, a display object and not a tool.
I got this beautiful pen on my 60th birthday. A relatively new company based in Florence, making great pens that are collectible all over the world. The downside of the history is when I started to spot corrosion stains near to the nib. Several sites referred to this problem pointing that when people returned the pen to the factory, the piece was changed without any charge. When I tried to do so through Iguana Sell they told me that now the charge is 57 EU. So for the time b
A small pen in the cheap range of Sheaffer. A model from the late 1940's. It reminds me those pen we use in Argentina in the 1950's. The pen is short and must be posted to fit well in my hand but the medium/broad nib is so smooth that I like to use it sometimes more than more expensive and luxurious pens. Has a lever filler, a great system developed by Sheaffer, quick and clean.
