Just in and selling quick!
The Visconti Knights Templar Limited Edition Fountain Pen!
The Latest Visconti Templari is a sterling silver overlay pen on White Resin. Double Reservoir Power filler Fountain Pen. Limited to 312 pens, comes with papers and wax letter stamp.
MSRP is $2590. Email me for my price.
Note, the picture has a one tone nib, but it comes with a two tone 18k nib. Fine, Medium or Broad


About 700 years ago with an infamous charge of heresy the Order of the Knight Templars was outlawed, the knights killed and their fortunes confiscated.

The Order, founded around the year 1118, owed its name to the Dome of the Rock, an Islamic sanctuary located in the whereabouts of the Biblical Temple of Jerusalem; the Templars used to call this Dome ‘‘Templum Domini’’

The Knight Templars are remembered for the economic and cultural development they had brought throughout Europe and they are still cited today as shining example of honesty and utter devotion and faithfulness.

In the common iconography the Knight Templars represent the right thing that can only be destroyed by mere economical interests.

This fountain pen has been inspired by the legendary white robe with the red cross the Knight Templars used to wear.

Since they were a military order the metallic finishing of the pen recalling the iron and the steel have been duly aged.

The seal bears as well an important historical charge: it portrays two knights, symbol of poverty and of the duality friar –soldier.

I got mine, and the "WOW!!!!" factor on this one is off the scale! Nice video, Bry -- you may want to add a disclaimer that "No infidels were gutted during the making of this film."

That's why those of us with light colored pens use Herbin ink. Rinses nicely and, to date, no staining on my pens.

I have been using my Divine Comedy for over a year, with Visconti Turquoise ink and with one rinse its white just like the day I got it. As long as you are using the right ink, you are good.
I actually quite like the look of the feed the same color as my ink now.

As Bryant and GP said. Just stay away from super-saturated and "bulletproof" inks and you ought to be ok. Mine does fine already with Herbin grey & black. Also, reds & pinks might be dangerous (other than Herbin). I used Visconti Brown on my Arte Mudejar with no problems whatsoever. Now that I've seen the ivory nib on this pen, I'd hate to put a black one on it. :)

Hmm....for the price of those, I think you should kick in a Wall St. LE. :ltcapd: I'm joking of course, my friend.

Non-Christians don't share Visconti's enthusiasm about the Templars' role in the Crusades.

Its a good thing they were so long ago that they do not matter anymore, and nice of them to bequeath some heraldry to the future that can be used as decoration. We are fortunate to live at a time that the human race is starting to mature a little and this superstitious nonsense is becoming just the window dressing of history. There is always going to be some immature person out there who will object to the appearance of some decorated art or other. I think we just have to learn to accept it, and just pat them on the head and say "yes" "yes", then ignore them. I have heard exactly the same response to the 60th Anniversary of Israel pen, and a moon and stars ball pen I have. It is fortunate for pen collectors that pen makers are able to look at all sorts of historical sources of heraldry and art for inspiration, and we are fortunate enough to be able to appreciate ancient symbolism as art. There is not enough room on this page to list all of the art out there that some person will not find reasons to object to for some specious reason or other, so I don't think you need to worry too much about this pen. There is something for everyone in this pluralistic world, and those people who do not like something for any reason are free to choose something else.
