I was frustrated on a pen I bought: a Stipula Etruria Gallicana in Oronero color with a stiflexnib.
This pen was gorgeous at first sight, but some drawbacks refrained me from using it daily:
-It could only hold a small amount of ink: it is a CC filler.
-The feed was a disaster as it was not suitable for a flex nib like the stiflex nib.
-The pen was made of acrylic and i love the warm feeling of ebonite.
After months of drawing plans and attempting on making parts for the pen I finally succeeded!
This pen is made from ebonite rods from Nikko ebonite in ripple orange.
The filling system is a Vac-Fill, a copy of the Wahl-Eversharp Doric second generation filling system.
The cap doesn't post.
The clip is sculpted from solid 316L stainless steel.
Cap jewel and end barrel jewel are made of a gem grade rhodolite garnet embedded in 316L stainless steel.
The cap ring is made of a solid rod of 316L stainless steel, engraved by hand with carbide tipped burr, with an artificially rusted finish.
The nib is an original 14k Stiflex nig from Globus (Stipula) and is quite a wet noodle.
The feed is in hard rubber from a destroyed Omas 360.
Here are the pictures, it is now my daily writer!
