The Florentine is hand-turned from precious Italian acrylic resin in blue with a mother of pearl effect. Each fleur de lis is engraved into the acrylic and then filled with gold according to a method developed by manuscript illuminators during the Middle Ages. This technique shows off the three dimensional nature of the fleur de lis engravings, of which there are ten.
The section is of solid sterling silver, guilloché engraved with a vintage chiseled pattern and plated with 18kt gold.
The #6 steel nib, sourced from Peter Bock in Germany, is a very smooth writer, and is available in EF, F, M, B.
