New pen arrived today =]

http://i.imgur.com/WPlVzh6.jpg

Just got my Romillo Sil #9 in terracotta ebonite!

It's a slip cap pen similar to the vintage Waterman 12 or other pens in the Waterman 1X series. Really elegant pen, I think. The roll-stopper on the cap is a customization I asked for. You can also order the pen plain or with a clip.

I had asked for the cabochon on my Essential #9 and thought it was a really good touch, so I asked for it again. It's a solid gold emblem embedded into the barrel and has the Romillo logo in deep relief.

Romillo Sil #9 compared to a Scriptorium Aeterna. The Romillo is ebonite, Scriptorium is celluloid.

The pen's certificate. Each Romillo pen comes with this document, which states the pen's number -- my Eo is 379, my Essential is 422, and my Sil is 444. At the bottom is a writing sample with the nib. I ordered a Medium-Fine.

Instructions for the Sil #9 eyedropper. Alvaro found that the converter can't keep up with the #9 nib and huge ebonite feed so all #9 nib pens are eyedropper-fillers. The #7 nib pens come in both eyedropper and cartridge/converter filling systems.

Huge, gorgeous ebonite feed! Provides a really reliable, wet flow.

Romillo #9 nib and Platinum 3776 Century nib. I actually swapped the Platinum nib with my Nakaya so the Platinum has a Nakaya nib in it right now but they are the same size, shape etc.

The Romillo nib design, with the wings reaching towards the tip is one of the most attractive I've ever seen.

Isn't is a lovely shape?

 

Now to decide what to ink it up with ...

Lovely pen. I usually go with a brown or a purple in my terracotta pen.

If you want less blah, blah, blah and more pictures, follow me on Instagram!

Thank you! I actually filled it up with Sailor Shigure, one of favorite purples. It's been writing great. Very smooth nib, and the barrel/section has a wonderful feel in the hand.

I can't decide what I like better, the gorgeous pen or the hi thread count cotton that it's sitting on.

Wow! Congratulations! The new Sil #9 looks amazing.

 

I look forward to discussing your view of the relative merits of the Romilo's you have and the Scriptorium Aeterna.

Beauty in simplicity.

Thank you! It's a wonderful pen and feels great in the hand. I almost got a marbled ebonite for but I ruled against it for this model because I like the seamless look of the section/barrel join. I think it would be really tough to match the pattern with a marbled ebonite. The marbled ebonites are beautiful though and I think I may order a Narcea #9 in mottled blue and black in the future.
