sub_bluesy posted a topic in Fountain Pen ReviewsI thought I should make my first real post something somewhat "exotic", or at least useful. I would have killed for this information a year ago when I was taking this pen apart without guidance! Maybe it will be beneficial to someone in my situation in the future! This is kind of a cross post from a post I made on another pen sub forum previously. I purchased a Visconti Pininfarina some time ago but the pen had some issues despite being new. I sent the first pen back due to the plating flaking off and some hacks in the carbon. This post is about the replacement pen. Let's get started
I picked this up new for a killer deal on eBay. No way was I going to touch it at retail! Its not exactly what I expected though. Its kind of a tomato red and not the bright Ferrari red I was hoping for in pics. I guess it could be considered a Rosso Bordeaux Ferrari red but not the bright re-sale red Rosso Corsa I was expecting. Also this damn Smartouch nib is something I really wish Visconti would dispense with pushing. I have 3 of them and theyre all a POS. I had to work on this one today and thought I had it sorted but now its not writing unless you prime the feed after a few hours
Visconti has just introduced the latest addition to their Pininfarina collection, Visconti Pininfarina Iridium. After Visconti Pininfarina Carbongraphite and Nanotech, Visconti has decided to pair up again with the Italian car design firm in order to create this masterpiece.This time, the key material is Iridium. Iridiscence is a physical phenomena that, in different materials and depending on the visible spectrum and corner of view changes colour. This effect, that you may have noticed before in the rainbow, bubbles or a butterfly's wings is present on this fountain pen's body. Furthermo
