Visconti Black Divina Midi Fountain Pen
This pen the Divina Midi, is based off of the popular Divine Proportions Limited Edition Fountain Pen. It keeps true to that same ratio or proportions determined by Phi (1.618…) also known as the Gold or Divine Proportion.
The pen is made out of Black Lucite and Sterling Silver inlay spiraling around the whole pen. They are fitted with 23k palladium plated nibs. Available in F, M and B. The Visconti Divina Midi uses a very unique and stable “Push Pull Piston Filler.”
Making this pen was a daunting task, requiring much thought into how exactly to inlay the sterling silver. Inlay’s can sometimes be much more difficult than overlay’s. In addition to how to do it, Visconti had to take into consideration the fact that the pen spirals around in a very symmetrical proportion, and is made of a solid piece of material, lucite. There is a Midi version, which is this one, and a Maxi version of this pen. Here is a video on how they made the Maxi, whilst the making of the Midi would be very much the same.
The manufacturers suggested retail price for the Visconti Black Divina Midi Fountain Pen with 23kt Palladium nib is $995.
This pen is elegant and noble. It has the size to be discrete while also demonstrating that it is a well balanced writing instrument. This is one of those pens that is an instant classic, timeless yet modern.
