This Stipula Adagio fountain pen has a unique light blue semi-translucent faceted resin body. It has a metal grip, a threaded cap, and silver trim. It fills via built-in piston mechanism, and utilizes a #6 steel nib. All Stipula fountain pens are handmade in Italy.
The new Stipula collection comes from the praise of the slowness that in great music takes its name "Adagio". A slow and relaxed time that reconciles with reflection and calmness.
This fountain pen has a fixed piston operated by the rotating knob, firm and solid in the hands of its user. The pen body and cap have eight facets, with resin materials rich in unexpected opalescence and nuances with translucent and discreetly luminescent features in the dark. The high performance and reliable nib is available in steel with a fine, medium and calligraphic 1.1mm iridium tip. The Stipula Adagio is currently available in three colors: Pisan Sunset (amber); Fountains of Poggi (seagreen); Dawn in Fiesole (light blue).
Due to the threaded cap and the faceted body, we do not recommend posting this pen.
We do our best to photograph the pens to show how they will appear in person, but due to the nature of the material, expect some variation in the pattern from what you see here. We’re unable to honor any preferential pattern requests at this time.
