This will be the first review I have completed. I really intended to write a much more thorough review but after about 50 attempts decided to put it on one page condensed. Here goes bunny01.gif









Apparently the 146p and the divina have similar taste in books. Who new? biggrin.gif

I know a Bryant box when I see one.Thank you I had a good laugh on that one.
I love Visconti boxes and I think the box on your pen looks even nicer then I expected.
I also think the cuffling are a nice touch.
Enjoy thumbup.gif

Looks like a lovely pen! I wonder about the Visconti trademark clip too. Visually, the clip looks nice. Practically, the clip seems rather cumbersome and as your review suggests, too loose.

Its definitely loose but worse than that it is smaller than I wish it was. The Romanica has a huge clip that will attach to anything this one has the same size clip as much smaller pens. Definitely dissapointing. Its not the end of the world but a better solution would be nice.
