With more than 200 years of history, Florentine stationers Pineider offer some superbly made fountain pens. Boasting a beautiful, almost pearlescent resin body, the Avatar fountain pen is our favourite, and packed with carefully thought-out design features.
The lid has a magnetic closure to keep it securely shut with minimal effort. The clip to attach it to your pocket or notebook is fully sprung for a firm grip, and has been inspired by the shape of a goose quill; a nod to the history of pens. The engraved band around the base of the lid shows the skyline of Florence, Pineider's home and the city that created this glorious pen.
The steel section is fluted at the end to prevent your fingers slipping too far down the pen, promoting a comfortable hold. The medium nib is rhodium-plated steel and slightly springy for a very moderate variation of line with pressure. An alternative fine nib is available to order on request.
The Avatar comes with a converter for use with bottled ink. If you fancy creating a custom colour ink to go with your pen, Pineider also make the amazing Alchemy of Colours ink mixology set. Alternatively, you can simply detach the converter and use standard-size ink cartridges.
The Avatar comes in a presentation box. Made in Italy.
