Ok, This hurts - for real - but I must make some priorities, so this Visconti Opera in Black Guilloche have to go.
This particular Visconti Opera comes in Black Guilloche and sports a customized stubbish fine with some spring. I bought it new from Bryant and it originally had a medium nib, but it was customized by Oxonian (member here who does a truly great job with nibs) and I have been very happy with it. Not semi-flexible, but springy with a bit of line variation
(On more sample below). It can be a little picky with inks but not very picky. It particularly loves Diamine Registrar's Ink and Rohrer & Klingner's Scabiosa - this nib brings out the beauty in them. I don't seem to have taken any photos of writing samples of these inks in this nib, though, and it is already thoroughly cleaned for the sale, so I don't want to ink it up again to take more photos) .
It is a c/c filler and comes with the original converter, but you can use all kinds of international cartridges in it and/or any converter that is compatible with international cartridges. Since this pen has been in use it shows some signs of use - but no major scratches. I'd say that it is in a very good condition. I unfortunately don't have the box, but I have the papers.
You find my review of it here. It comes with its papers, but without its box.
I'd like $200 for the Opera - including registred shipping all over the world & PP fees. Add $6 for full insurance.
If you are interested - send a PM. First firm "I want" gets the pen.
