Stipula has many products that do not reach the main stream, as do most of the fine writing instrument manufacturers out there today. This is perhaps their best known secret. Here is a brilliantly shaped pen, with remarkable characteristics surely ahead of it’s time. Created from red and black ebonite, a precious material from ancient times, and adorned with solid rose gold appointments, it carries an elegant look. Moreover the shape tapers, to where the cap meets the body with a matching ring on the cap and barrel, which is also crowned with a stunning blue jewel. Uncapping the pen reveals another ring adorned with “VALLECCHI” and engraved is the name of the pen and the numbering, on this pen you will see the 1/1 indicating that is only one of these pens made in the world. This pen capitalizes on an in house piston filler and it’s glory is enhanced with a solid Rose Gold Medium nib. Topping off the cap is another striking feature, a star shaped much like compass rose. The shape is really unique and is quite comfortable. The MSRP on the Stipula Solid Rose Gold Notary Limited Edition Fountain Pen is $5600.
