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.

That is interesting. I love all of my Stipulas and I am happy they are moving forward with new designs and their own nibs.

As a big Stipula fan I find this extremely interesting. I hope to see some more faceted Etrurias as well.

Thank you VERY much for taking the time and effort of conducting an interview and sharing it here!

 

Can someone inform me about the new vacuum system? Is it now similair to the Pilot Custom 823 or the Visconti Powerfillers (?) where there are two ink compartments: one in the body of the pen full of ink and one above the section with ink to feed the nib?

I think they use the Torricelli Air pump filling system. A Stipula dealer told me it very similar to the vacumatic system, I am no expert in this type of filling system though.

      @Ruaidhri This was an absolutely wonderful bit of writing, and I hope that you're able to maintain the style once all of the medications are out of your system.  Take care and recover quickly!

      These comments make me sad as I sympathise with Ruaidhri, having great difficulties in being taken seriously. Or being taken at all (no off-colors jokes, please!) In spite of overwhelming odds,  Ruaidhri -now I know how to spell it- made a courageous decision and stuck to it. I was diagnosed with a similar growth in a place I will not reveal. Oh, well, if you insist it was Mount Sinai Hospital. But I firmly intend to walk in Ruaidhri's footsteps, if he will let me, on my next visit to Dublin.

      Reminds me of the day my associates and I developed a cure for all mankind's ills and mistakenly wrote it down with invisible ink.

      Was that the end of the Laboratory? Somehow the exactitude created a fully destructive device, as always!
