    Stipula Nibs

    I recently interviewed Luca Viti - Stipula's business partner and head of the pens’ department - because we re-started a business relationship after a few years off. As I wrote in the interview's introduction, "I missed the Stipulas. They are beautiful, interesting, and charming pens. They remind me of those prim-and-proper ladies: they won’t surprise you with the latest fashion, but will never look out of place." Well, apart from the aesthetics, I found out that Stipula now produces its own nibs, because a few years ago bought an old nib factory with all old equipments and started producing home-made nibs. Not only gold. They also make a steel calligraphic nib (they called it V-Flex) that is more flexible and performing than many gold nibs. Here you find the whole interview: http://blog.giardino.it/2019/12/stipula-is-back/
  2. Atellan Tales is a series made by Marlen approx 15 years ago with brick red, green-blue, and yellow-black ebonite and in two sizes: business (regular) and magnum (large). http://blog.giardino.it/wp-content/uploads/2015/08/Maschere.jpg All the fountain pens are piston filled and feature sterling silver trims and steel nibs. Their price is really very interesting; not only for the huge discount (more than 50-60%), but also for their inherent value. Please look at my page for all details: http://www.giardino.it/pens/marlen/maschere.php The pens honour the ancient Neapolitan theatre, which masks they took their names from. Read more about their cultural origins in my Blog's article: Atellan Tales by Marlen: Italian comedy at the time of Plautus
