Etruria Corsani Limited edition
And finally, our new born pen!
In partnership with Stipula, so rigorously made in Florence, we are proud to announce our new collection of fountain pens.
The philosophy that has inspired us, is the same we've been following since our first edition. We strongly believe the pen to be a writing instrument. It could be precious, it has to be good looking, well made but it must not lose its basic function. Our fountain pens are hand made in the best Italian craftsmen tradition with the utmost care to details, quality,beauty and best writing performance.
This new one takes its appereance from the most loved model of the Florentine company: the Etruria, a classic Ogiva style,sinuosly elegant. We have opted for the original size of the 90s that we consider more comfortable for a daily use and we have enhanced it by the use of the historic ebonite resin.
Ebonite applications begins from the 19th century.
Ebonite is a brand name for very hard rubber first obtained by vulcanizing natural rubber for prolonged periods.It has been the first material to be used for producing fountain pens due to its resistance to corrosion. Its name comes from being used as a replacement of the ebony wood for many purposes.
The collection is available in three colors, two follow the ebonite tradition (red and blu) and the last is more unique and fascinating, from my personal point of view. It is a nice sand color with shades shifting from green to grey.
The technical and most distinctive feature is no doubt the ink window. The pen is piston filling with a huge capacity and works differently from the common ones. You have to turn the bottom cone clockwise to empty the body.
The heart of every fountain pen is the nib and I must give credit to Stipula which, in the last years has implemented an home made production of solid gold nibs. They have a unique flexibility(they are dubbed Stiflex) and a remarkable range of sizes.
The collection is available in three nib versions:
Stiflex 14kt solid gold (Ultrafine, Extrafine, fine, medium, broad, Italic 0.9 and 1.1)
Stainless steel (fine, medium, Italic 1.1 and Vflex)
Regarding the colors we offer 4 options: the red, available both with gold and palladium trims, blue and sand associated to the palladium finishings.
Light and well balanced we hope it will be a reliable daily writing companion able to gratify all the senses!
Limited to only 90 numbered pieces per color.
The first batch we are going to receive will include the first 20 pieces for each version.
We are waiting to receive your comments and we will happily answer all your questions!
