This fountain pen is handmade by the artisans in Aosta Valley, Italy, of natural Indian hand-polished buffalo horn. The natural color is matte and varies from dark brown to almost black. The cap and finger grip section are made of solid sterling 925 silver. The silver surface is decorated with an extraordinary guilloché engraving "Cisele" using a diamond point to create a "niche" writing instrument.
This pen is also available in African buffalo horn which is characterized by more glossy finish and lighter color (from cream to light brown to dark brown). We have a different pen that is made of this material, so you can compare the difference in color.
You are assured to buy a truly precious writing instrument as the manufacturing company belongs to the Italian silversmith guild and complies with both Italian and European laws. This compliance is verified by a mark on each writing instrument - a rhombus shaped stamp with *AO 28, and oval stamp 925 which ensure that the pen is made of solid 925 silver.
The fountain pen is equipped with double refill system - both converter and cartridges can be used. The pen is delivered with pumping converter inside and international standard cartridges can be bought in stationery shops all over the world.
The fountain pen is enhanced with a gold-plated steel nib, Medium size. Other (Fine, Extra Fine, Broad and very Broad) nib sizes are available on request without any charge. Please note that the nib may be adorned with a variable pattern (not the griffins) depending on the availability.
The pen is also available in roller version.
This pen can be personalized. Please check here for more details.
The fountain pen will be shipped in the made-in-Italy pen gift box with the authentic origin certificate. Please allow about 14 business days for your handmade pen to be delivered from Italy to your door.
