The Pineider Arco is a new collection of limited edition fountain pens made in Florence, Italy, and designed by Dante Del Vecchio. The beautiful Oak brown resin is reminiscent of a classic fountain pen look from the 20th century.
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 14kt gold nib. The nib is flexible for ease of creating line width variation in your writing.
The Pineider Arco Oak fountain pen is limited to 888 pieces worldwide, and it comes packaged in a gift box along with a Pineider Pen Filler!
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.
