Bottom Shelf: This pen has been gently used, but is otherwise in great shape. While every effort to clean these pens is made, as they are not brand new, you might see residual ink or water. All Bottom Shelf sales are final.

The Pineider Arco is a collection of limited edition fountain pens made in Florence, Italy, and designed by Dante Del Vecchio. The magic of Arco is in the material. An overlap of transparent and opaque layers bonded by a golden glue is first cut to size and then lathed with a 4-degree slant. The outcome is a semi-transparent and iridescent material, reminiscent of celluloid. The Pineider Arco Stilo Rainbow fountain pen is limited to 888 pieces worldwide and is indidvually numbered out of 888 on the bottom finial. 

The Arco features Pineider’s flexible nib, a quill-shaped clip, and a “soft touch magnetic lock” cap system. This fountain pen fills via a piston filler, and is completed with a smooth, soft 14k gold nib. The nib is flexible for ease of creating line width variation in your writing.

Following the world trend for flexible nibs, this brand new quill nib is described by Pineider as hyperflex with an excellent memory. The project was made to create a nib for daily writing and not for calligraphy whose performance are quite different. The purpose of the new nib is clear: just writing pleasure for everybody, also for beginners. Remember that the nib is the extension of the hand and does not need any pressure to write.

We do our best to photograph the pens to show how they will appear in person, but due to the nature of the material there will be some variation in the pattern seen here. This adds an element of uniqueness to the pen, with no two patterns being exactly the same.
