The Pineider La Grande Bellezza, or The Great Beauty, is a new collection of fountain pens made in Italy, designed by Dante Del Vecchio. The clear resin body and cap on this limited edition Honeycomb pen feature hexagonal cutouts, and a small inner cap helps keep the nib from drying out. It features a rhodium-plated quill-shaped clip, and Pineider's "soft touch magnetic lock" cap system. This fountain pen fills via cartridge/converter, and is completed with a smooth, soft 14kt gold nib. The nib is flexible for ease of creating line width variation in your writing. The elegant packaging also includes a free black leather single pen case (a $75 value), in which you'll find the pen upon initial unboxing. Only 888 of these limited edition pens are available worldwide.
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.
This color is discontinued by Goulet Pens and will not be restocked once sold out.
