A wonderful pen. The trim (I am guessing sterling silver?) really compliments the colour of the pen itself.

Nice pen, Georges, and I like this blue-grey colour.

 

I hope it will bring you many pleasant writing hours.

 

BTW what was the other colour it was made in??

It was made from Tibaldi Havana Blue/Brown celluloid. Brilliant marbled brown and gold with veins of deep ultramarine blue. Here is one that was for sale by Vicary a while ago

A pen will grow on you. (or not, sometimes)

 

So now that you have it for about 3-4 weeks, how does it hold up as a writer?

Hi! The Stipula Writing Equipment Society Fountain Pen was available in five colors. The two talked about in this thread, the same cracked ice celluloid found on the LE Stipula Etruria and Iris, a darker blue celluloid, and a red/orange. I can take some pics of the collection if you are interested, as I have all five.

I probably should have tried taking these pics during the day, but night is usually the best time for me! So, here are these for now. If I can get better photos later, I will. I just took pics of the three that haven't been reviewed or seen on the board as of yet:

 

First off - the WES Isola Panarea. This one is the rarest of the group - only 25 in this colorway were made. Its a very dark marine blue/black with flashes of teal.

Next, the WES Isola Stromboli. There were 40 of these issued. This one is an earthy rust-red with flashes of gold and a steely blue-green.

And last, but not least - the Isola Vulcano. The most striking of the bunch. There were 45 of these issued. You may recognize the color because it is the same celluloid that was used in the Stipula Etruria 911 LE and the Iris (both of which I also own). Even though it is not a unique to this LE, I adore this celluloid - which is probably why I have three pens in it.

 

The other two - the Isola Lipari had 40 issued and the Salina had 50 pens issued. 

 

It has been several years since I have written with these pens, but remember they were absolutely fantastic writers. I always have had a soft spot in my heart for Stipula pens.
