My Personal Pens: Stipula Etruria Magnifica Alter Ego

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.
