My Personal Pens: Visconti Opera Elements Fire

The Visconti Opera Elements Fire has been in my collection for a very long time.  I absolutely adore the finish of this pen: it’s a wonderful pen that just looks beautiful.  The smooth and springy 14 karat gold nib is particularly special.  This pen is quite a bit smaller than its big brother, the Opera Master, but it is also lighter and more portable.
