Chatting About My Pens Part 7: Italian Pens (Stipula, Leonardo)

In this new series of videos, I chat about my pens. There will be no writing samples here: if you’re interested in that, please check out my reviews of the individual pens or see my Personal Pens videos.

In this seventh installment, I talk about my Italian (non-Visconti) pens, made by Stipula and Leonardo.

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.
