Stipula Limited Edition Etruria Colonna Classica Piston Filled Fountain Pen
Through out many ancient and modern cities the sight of Columns as art and structurally as part of a building or stadium, is common. Many time these columns can withstand many decades and centuries of wear and tear without losing their integrity. This pen is presented as a timeless classic, much like the columns of yesteryear.
This pen was made in the Etruria style that has distinguished Stipula as a high quality pen manufacturer. The collaboration of the minds at Chatterley Pens and Stipula apply taste and style into to a blend of old world class and new age technology, producing high quality limited editions.
Built in Firenze where columns may be more abundant than here in the U.S., this pen is made from a fine resin, and thoughtfully accented with solid sterling silver trim. This pen features an in-house Self Cleaning piston filling system. This pen has a very nice tactile feel and the design of the Column is discreet enough to make it a versatile pen for use in any occasion, but still be admired.
The clip and trim is made of 925 sterling silver and the nib is made of 14kt gold. It is a limited edition numbered to only 18 pens world wide, and is available in Fine, Medium, or 1.1 Stub as well as Extra Fine Flexible. (More information about the flex nib below)
This pen is available with an Extra Fine, Extra Flexible nib. The nib goes from EF-BB with no problem. The nibs and Feeds have been modified to do this. The flow has also been adjusted. If you have never used a flex nib, its very wise to contact me first to see if a flex nib is for you. These nibs are beautiful to write with and can really add amazing character to your writing style, but the nibs are soft. This means, the room for error is less than a standard nib. And too much pressure, or too much pressure at the wrong angle can bend or spring tines.
