After a little selling off of pens I finally bought a new one, a Delta Ainu


This is one of the indigenous peoples pen and I in person it is much more interesting than in pics.

The body is of a deep blue marbled resin that has hints of a deep purple in some of the darker areas. There are three color bands in two places on the body and the cap band and clip are silver with engravings.

The pen is about the size of a 149 maybe a little smaller the fit and finish are incredible with no edges that are not smooth.

This is a c/c unit but the pen comes with a bottle of ink so I used the EF nib to write a few letters- One of the smoothest extra fine nibs I have used!

The cap screws onto the blind cap which makes the balance of the pen shift upwards but that allows for some better control of pressure to the nib & paper.

The pen comes in a wooden box that can be turned into a picture frame which is a neat little addition.

I got this from Pam at a great price and already have ordered another Delta thumbup.gif

Overall a nice pen that I'd suggest you have a look at.

Oo! I'm getting hooked on the Delta nibs. Any chance of a picture?
