My Italian father-in-law owned this super-slim metal fountain pen (apologies for the Flickr links):


It says "Delta" on the cap, but it's a world away from the Dolce Vita (https://flic.kr/p/Rs5Xsh). It's Sailor-Chalana sized and, indeed, takes the same slim cartidges (https://flic.kr/p/QMKYJK). It's all metal, with some very nice bevelling and the clip is reminiscent of the Aurora Hastil (https://flic.kr/p/QMKxeg). The collar has become corroded, but it has an interesting rounded nib (https://flic.kr/p/RNbB2N) and still writes with a beautiful, wet fine line.

I've read here that Delta basically erased their history in the mid-90s and started again. So is this an example of one of their early-80s pens? Anyone know the model name or number? Any other examples of early Delta pens?
