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

The iconic Visconti Opera Master returns to the collection in a version made in collaboration with Jonathon Brooks, a color called: Combustion. 

This fountain pen features a black body and cap with beautiful shimmering swirls of red and orange. The beloved Ponte Vecchio bridge clip features a bright red enamel to accent the Visconti name. It is accented with ruthenium trim. 

This Visconti Opera Master Combustion fountain pen is limited to only 88, each individually numbered. It uses an oversized 18k white gold nib made in-house, closes via the 'hook safe lock', and fills via the double reservoir power filler.

'Double Reservoir' Power Filler: A vacuum filling system that is easy to use and has considerable benefits. Patented in 1998, this is arguably the most advanced filling system ever developed in fountain pen history. The user is able to fill the pen with the equivalent of multiple cartridges of ink, and thanks to the two reservoirs, prevents ink from leaking during air travel.

'Hook Safe Lock': This revolutionary closing system is very satisfying to operate and was created to lock the pen body into the cap to prevent the possibility of the pen accidentally unscrewing and leaking inside a pocket or bag.

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.
