Limited edition fountain pen celebrating the age of discovery.
Announcing the latest in a series of limited edition pens dedicated to the great thinkers, creators and scientists of world history. Named “Terra Incognita” (“unknown land”), this pen pays tribute to great explorers of the age of discovery. It is limited to a series of 100 fountain pens and 100 rollerball pens.
The result of a collaborative discussions between our Italian master pen artisan and our American representative, this special pen is handcrafted in Italy of solid sterling silver and Italian precious resin. The cap is engraved with a design inspired by ancient maps, and it features Aeolus, god of the wind, the seas, an anchor and the continents as once imagined. The section is engraved with an ancient symbol representing the compass points. There are two versions of the cap. On the darker version, the silver is treated in an acid bath, rendering it a vintage grey. It is then engraved to reveal the brilliance of the sterling silver in the image. The lighter version is first engraved and then treated with a blue pigment to set off the engraving. The barrel is made of an azure blue Italian resin that has wood embedded in it, recalling the continents in the ocean.
The fountain pen is fitted with a #6 Bock Nib which is available in EF, F, M and B point sizes. It comes with a piston converter to use bottled ink and will also accept standard international cartridges.
