Fountainpen.it Aleph



Recommended Posts

Hi to everyone.

 

Please let me introduce you the new fountainpen.it pen: Aleph!

Made in cooperation with Marlen, the Aleph has been inspired with the help of the forum's discussions.

The pen has a cool looking springy nib and a classic body shape, making it a traditional-modern pen.

 

This is a short test of the nib. Enjoy!

The video shows the nib providing flex (and not skipping). This looks really promising and interesting.

 

Is this a one-of item you built yourself or is is this a new pen that is being manufactured now?

Interesting. I would like to know more about this pen. Where should I look to find more information?

 

Thank you.

Fantastic job by FP.it team, and it seems esp. Daniele (the OP), who conceived the project and the pen with the people at Marlen.

 

By the way, thank you again, Daniele! The pen looks gorgeous! Can't wait to receive mine!

For now this pen is reserved to the members of fountain pen.it.

In these days the pens will shipped to subscriber members. And Namo is one of them! ;)

 

It looks a being a wonderful pen.

 

Where could we buy it, eventually?

As agreed with, Marlen is free to make a commercial version of this pen.

I don't know when and how.

Daniele.

I now have the pen in hand One word: wahoohoho!!! If you are looking for an awesome Italian writer, don't dismiss that one... I still have to test drive the pen during a couple of long writing sessions, but the design is omprssive, as is the general attention to details, the balance of the pen (posted or not) or the very sober line... The limited FP.it is blue as the one listed on Marlen's site is very, but I am sure the material beauty and quality is the same!

 

Daniele: this is a great achievement. The pen is not a colored/trimmed version of an existing pen, but a total new design. What a work! Congrats and many thanks to you and to people at Marlen's.

I didn't see the pen in flesh yet, but I'm very intrigued by the nib.

Marlen says it's made in "acciaio armonico", that I'd translate with harmonic steel (or harmonious?) with beautiful indents at sides.

And the feeder is transparent!

Not sure about this bit I think it would translate as "spring steel". It's a semi flex nib and an awesome writer. It's very quick, vivascious on paper, and looks a bit longer than the regular #6 nib (but it might be my imagination). The line variation is very nice, similar IMHO to Waterman Man 100 first generation nibs, although the feeling is totally different.

The pen itself if a wonderful design, slender with a rather long grip section (think Bexley Corona). The balance of the pen is particularly exceptional.

It is advertised as a piston filler but I can't see an ink view window. Can somebody explain?
