This Stipula Etruria Magnifica in the Alter Ego finish is a nice, large pen with a clever piston mechanism. Although I like the finish, this pen is particularly special to me because of the very fascinating titanium nib, which is very springy and has excellent “snap-back”. This pen was limited to 351 fountain pens. I have not yet done a full review of this pen, but I will record one when I get a chance.
Kind thanks to Joost from Appelboom Pennen, who lent me this Montblanc Limited Edition Rouge et Noir made out of ebonite. If you shop at Appelboom, use the discount code in the banner below (‘friend’) for 10% off your purchase – excluding Montblanc.
