The fingers grip section is made of solid sterling 925 silver with the prominent guillochè incision like the stingray skin hundreds of small bones. Writing with this fountain pen will donate you unusual tactile sensation. Already Japanese samurais used the stingray skin (galuchat) for their sword handles to obtain the perfect grip. The clip and rings are silver plated.

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

I have been writing with this pen for about a week and I love it. The flow is very smooth and the nib slides very easily over the paper. I can write for a long time with this pen before getting tired or getting cramps in my hand. I love how this pen looks and feels in my hand, the Stingray leather has a nice texture and the custom rose gold plating they did contrasts really well. I think i will be writing with this pen for a very long time.
