May I ask how does this tubular nib write? It looks kind of ugly.

Visconti should cancel the tubular steel nibs next.

In my experience the tubular nibs write very well....I have enjoyed using them....they are very unique, and they look very good on the Pens that Visconti has installed them on.

With palladium at $81US per *gram* I'm betting that no nib maker will be producing high palladium content nibs for the forseeable future.

So many restoration projects...

Bill P: Thank you for your input. It's always good to hear from other people's first hand experience. Good to know!

I'll start buying Visconti again when they start making nice (IMO) pens again. Everything is a variation on the HS or Divina, or a demo. What happened to celluloid, double reservoir power fillers and ink windows? The Wall Street, Ripples,all the nice LEs with power fillers, big gold nibs, great themes, wire inlays, etc.???

 

And now they're all priced at Montegrappa level; even more! I see why DD left. Pump out near identical (bleep) at the lowest manufacturing cost for whatever they can get away with charging.

 

And believe me, I'm no Visconti basher. I've probably owned as many or more of their early-2012 or so LEs as anyone on this board. That's why I'm so disappointed in the Visconti of today.

I agree with all of this except for the argument that they're making them as cheaply as possible.

 

They're being made by Italians. So they're being made as badly as possible. Not cheaply.

 

Cheap stuff can still be high quality and reliable.

 

It's a minor difference, but it's there :P

Selling a boatload of restored, fairly rare, vintage Japanese gold nib pens, click here to see (more added as I finish restoring them)
