New to the forum but I have a question regarding the Visconti Silver Dust fountain pen that I recently bought.
After reading/watching reviews on the Visconti Silver Dust with the palladium nib I thought that this would be the ideal pen for me as I'm planning on flying for work and like writing with a fountain pen. The design of the pen also was attractive to me.
Living in the UK and had previously used the UK shop before to order online. I decided to use the same shop which offered the silver dust in the steel tubular and dream touch versions. I ordered the extra fine in dream touch and when they said they only had an extra fine nib in two tone, rather than the one tone palladium that I've seen everywhere else. I didn't think too much of this.
However, I think what has been sold to me is originally the steal tubular nib version with the nib replaced with a palladium one. My reasoning for this is that the outer packaging states "KP16-01-FP1M Opera Silver Dust Demo Pen Tubular M", looking at Visconti's own website from my own understanding for the dream touch nib would be KP16-01-FPS.
The pen also came with the snorkel and looking at it next to the nib, just eyeballing the nib next to the snorkel I do not think it would fit.
When I had been looking at this pen online the dream touch version should come with a travel inkwell instead of the snorkel.
In the end I'm thinking of returning the item as it isn't what I expected when paying a premium price, I think if the shop had been more up front that they were replacing the nib from what came out of the box I wouldn't feel so bad.
Just curious who else has bought this model of pen and the version they bought and what they got out of the box.
