I have two Danitrio Cum Laudes, the large in brown and the smaller version in blue.  The larger is mine the other I am giving away to a friend.  The thing that I like about the larger one is the size, I've found that with a 1/2"section my hand doesn't feel cramped after a long writing session.  The celluloid in the pens is absolutely beautiful.  The shape and appearance of the two is the same but the one a miniature version. The small Cum Laude is about 5 1/2" long capped and the larger is 5 7/8".  The section on the large has a smooth taper on the small the section is slightly narrower and flares on the nib end.  The larger is the same size as an Edison Collier, which I believe is about the same size as a Mont Blanc 149.  Both Danitrios are wonderful writers.    Thanks for the review, I agree with what you said about the Cum Laude. they are a great pen for the money.

Nice review! I like that the pen doesn't have a section step and the fact that you can swap out the nib if you want is a real plus.

Great review.  Thanks to Kevin I also have two of the large Cum Laudes; one in brown with the straight section and the other in blue-grey with a lip section.  Both #6 nibs have been replaced using the Goulet’s replacement nibs; one is XF and the other 1.5mm.   I may switch the 1.5 to a 1.1 to better fit my needs – that’s one of the perks of these pens; changing the nibs is easy.  I really like the large size; I find it very comfortable to hold.  For the price you get a lot of pen.

Thanks for the review, very nice and very easy to read.  I have two cumlaudes in the the blue and tortoise colors, I never knew that the sections were Ebonite, I used to think plastic. BTW the pens are made of Cellulose acetate not the cellulose nitrate which is the camphor smelling celluloid.

I'm wondering if only the Cum Laude comes with the JoWo nib.  http://www.nibs.com/...ntain-pens.html says that their Danitrios come with Bock nibs.  Or did just yours, Signum1, come with the JoWo nib?  Does anyone know?


Franklin-Christoph, Italix, and Pilot pens are the best!
Iroshizuku, Diamine, and Waterman inks are my favorites!

Apica, Rhodia, and Clairefontaine make great paper!
