Thank you for sharing your beautiful pen & especially the chosen ink!

 

I have several Montegrappas with the sterling section & admit it doesn't interfere with their enjoyment in use but I very much appreciate the use of the same material for section & body of this pen.

Does anyone know the significance of the “753” designation?

By tradition, Rome was founded April 1, 753 BCE.

This is a most beautiful pen, similar to the Rosso Veneziano. Now they need to come up with a color for Milano.


Rationalizing pen and ink purchases since 1967.
