The Visconti Opera Silver Dust is a limited edition fountain pen. It features a clear acryloid barrel with real silver dust swirled throughout, and is complemented by an elegant black cap turned from Lucite and palladium trim. It opens and closes via the Hook Safe Lock system, and features Visconti's double reservoir power filling system.
Only 600 pens are available worldwide. Each is individually numbered and includes a free Visconti Traveling Inkwell.
Update: Historically this pen has been offered with a 23kt palladium Dreamtouch nib; however, Visconti is now transitioning to 18kt gold Perfecttouch nibs made by Bock in Germany. We've indicated in the nib size dropdown whether the 23kt palladium or 18kt gold nib is currently being offered at Goulet Pens.
You can also customize this pen with the magnetized MyPen System. We offer natural stones that you can swap into the finial in place of the Visconti logo coin.
Unfortunately we won’t be able to honor any specific number requests. 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.
