With this Spotlight model, Taccia wanted to show the whole world the beauty of a pen on not just the outside, but the inside as well. To do so, they laid bare our craftsmanship and engineering prowess, exposing everything for all to admire.
Each Taccia Spotlight is crafted from premium hand-turned resin. Every solid acrylic rod is individually selected to ensure not just transparency, but a quality of material that gives a feel and weight for writing luxury and comfort. Both the exterior and interior are then polished and inspected by hand to ensure maximum clarity and strength – this is a pen that you need to hold and use to fully appreciate.
The Taccia Spotlight is fitted with a custom two-tone nib made by Sailor, available in either stainless steel or 14kt gold, to ensure that each fountain pen has a writing experience that is second to none.
The cap screws to open/close and can push to post onto the back of the barrel when writing. The Spotlight comes with a Sailor proprietary converter and can also use proprietary Sailor ink cartridges.
