It's very narrow for a Visconti pen and the one I tested at a trunk show didn't post.
"narrow for a Visconti"
Didn't test with calipers, but it's pretty much as wide as the Ragtime
II on which it's based, along with the Classics, Replicas, D'Essais, Ragtime
I, Caravels, Seasons, and Pontevechios to name a few. Certainly though narrow compared to the Voyager, Divine/a, and Squaring-the-circle lines. No Van Goghs here so I can't say anything.
In fact, because it's overall size (length and girth) and balanced weight are why I have one...and I'm a sucker for Ragtime
Now their Bible series LEs are the price of a nice used car. Has stopped my buying cold.
If you're looking a Visconti wide-body, this probably takes the prize. The diameter is probably a little less than 1". It's like having the big fat kids' chalk or a runner's baton in your hand. Along with being priced out of my league, it's ridiculously sized. Have you seen one in person?
