I've had the Romet Pisa White Quartz resin pen for about a couple of weeks now. The cap screws off and on to the end when posted. The clip is spring loaded. It's a smooth writer with moderate wetness from the Schmidt M iridium point nib. The fittings are all metal. It's not a light pen, but if you like a solid pen, you might want to give this one a try. The writing sample I've posted is actual size using Noodler's Polar Blue Bullet Proof ink (the actual writing sample is several shades darker than this). I like this pen.









Left to right and top to bottom doesn't work out for everybody.

Is this pen romanian made? Looks very nice, material, tip and writting result. The rear end looks like it is a piston filler but then it is a converter? Is this correct? Or is it sort of like the Sheaffer Intigues, a converter that you can fill from the outside as it it was a piston filler?. I like the handwritten sample. What's the nib size?

This is a piston converter which has a round rubber seal and a twist screw mechanism which draws the ink up through the nib. You can't fill the converter from the top with ink. The black part on the right end of the converter is the plastic piece you twist to fill it. The pen also comes with a standard “short” European ink cartridge. The pen has a medium steel nib with an iridium tip. Romet is an Italian company.

Thanks, PolarPaul! We need to get more reviews of lesser-known pen companies, such as this one, here so we can expand our tastes... rolleyes.gif

Nice photos! Please post some more reviews!

Thanks, PolarPaul, for your review. I have been eyeing this pen as well. I have a Romet Emperor in the Confetti finish that I like using.

i saw the black one at isellpens.com (no affiliation) and it looks good and the price was right... but...

...i don't know, but it looks as if the thread in the section for the cap is too low and makes the grip uncomfortable. it's that the case?

also, how many turns to unscrew the cap and post?
