So, I acquired this nice looking pen. To my surprise, I am very satisfied with the way it writes. It is very smooth. The pen is on the heavy side, since it is made of some kind of metal (cant really identify the metal). Anyway, the reason I turned to the help of the fountain pen network is to identify it. At first I thought it was a chinese pen, but then I realized it had "ITALY" engraved on top of the clip. Therefore I hope you can help me to identify it (although I believe it will be some kind of entry level pen, since it has iridium point engraved on the nib). Thank you in advance, and here are few photos.
P.S. Since I was forced to compress pictures, I doubt you will be able to see the "ITALY" on top of the clip.

It do not look like an Italian pen.
is more similar to a chinese pen, in particular for the metal painted body.
Italian cheap pen, entry level, are normally in plastic.
The Italy engraved do not mean too much: Chinese pens have written Germany on the nib, and I have seen some kaigaloo marked Australia.

Well, I didnt't think in that way, but I guess it makes sense. Anyway, thanks for your opinion.
