Kaweco Sport. Of course, I’m tempted to call it “little”, “short” or “small”, but for me this pen is a statement that I love vintage. Not retro, not the fake approach to a former design. This is the real thing. I can feel here some kind of shape made with Bakelite in m...

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...

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 pe...

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 pro...

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 p...

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 th...

I have several Pelikan pens and all they want to do is look good and write great. From a some kind of underrated Pelikan Pura until the king of them all, the great M800.

The supreme Japanese esthetics is present in some of the most interesting designs in the pen world. Dialog 3, Lamy 2000 and Lamy Safari were born classics and there are such until today.
