Item details

Fountain pen was born as an exclusive writing instrument after a wine sampling event in collaboration with our friend and jeweller Luca Ronco who designed the pen fitting parts in his jewelry atelier in Aosta town, Italy (www.eyvia.com).

The fountain pen is hand-turned out of solid oak barrique wood where famouse italian wine was kept. The solid silver 925 fitting parts (except for the silver-plated steel clip) are designed to repeat the barrique shape and hoops. The middle ring is decorated with vine and latin moto engraving Nulla die sine linea - all these details help us to create an elegant writing instrument of high value and full of artistic meaning.

Our clients are assured to buy truly precious writing instruments as our company belongs to the Italian silversmith guild, which complies with both compulsory Italian and European law. This compliance is verified by marking each writing instrument with a rhombus shaped stamp encasing the mark “*AO 28”, our guild symbol and oval stamp "925". These stamps insure each customer that we are using solid silver 925.

Our fountain pens are updated with double-use refilling system - both converter and cartridges can be applied. The pen is delivered with pumping converter inside and a set of 6 cartridges for gift that further can be bought in stationary shops all over the world.

The pen is upgrated with white gold-plated 18 kt. steel nib, Medium size. Other (Fine, Extra Fine, Broad, very Broad, no griffins on) nib sizes are available on request without any additional charge.

You can also oder the pen in rollerball version: https://www.etsystudio.com/listing/183195666/handcrafted-rollerball-pen-oak-barrique?ref=shop_home_active_2
The pen can also be engraved with a name or a short message, see more details and costs here: https://www.etsystudio.com/listing/204661448/engraving-pen-with-name-or-message?

"Nulla dies sine linea" (No day [should go by] without [reading / writing at least] a line) .The saying attributed to Apelles, a renowned painter of ancient Greece, refers to the painter's diligence at practising his art every day: Nulla dies sine linea - "Not a day without a line drawn." Apelles was also reportedly asked why he touched and retouched his paintings so continually, trying to achieve perfection (at least in his own mind); to which he replied, "I paint for eternity."

FAQs

Yes! You are welcome with your request about personalizing your pen. Please place your order for customization here: https://www.etsy.com/shop/PensItaly?ref=hdr_shop_menu§ion_id=16073758

We will be happy to wrap your pen with florentine gift paper! Still be sure every pen comes in an elegant made-in-Italy gift box!

We work with wholesale orders.

You often ask us how to take care of solid wood pens we'd like to suggest you using natural beeswax paste. Beeswax paste provides an additional layer of protection on your pen wood surface, nourishing your pen and helping to protect against dryness, especially perfect for absorbent woods like oak. It is very easy to apply, buff and maintain from time to time when your pen barrel gets drier or colourless, since it is quite usual when you use your favourite pen every day. The pen is living when it writes well!

To remove the natural tarnish from solid silver 925 just take a pinch of baking soda and a piece of slightly wet cotton cloth, polish gently the silver surface. For gold-plated and silver-plated fittings please use only a cotton cloth without baking soda. Also you can buy special cleaning cloth for silverware here: https://www.etsy.com/shop/PensItaly?ref=hdr_shop_menu§ion_id=20415830

Purchased this fountain pen as a birthday gift to my husband. I had a request to replace regular nib with fine nib. It arrived on time and nicely wrapped. My husband is so pleased with it. He said it writes beautifully and has been using it everyday.
