- Product Details
The Visconti Torpedo rollerball pen is part of a new family of limited edition pens that are due to arrive from Visconti in May / June 2018.
These are oversized rollerball pens, so are large and comfortably solid in the hand. The Visconti Torpedo rollerball pen is made from uni-directional carbon fibre, so it is unbelievably tough - though with such a luxury writing instrument, it would be a shame to put this to the test! The filigree decoration around the pen barrel is of palladium-plated steel, though the pen is very smooth to handle despite the slightly raised appearance of the 'cage' - no sharp edges here. The accompaniments to this pen are also palladium plated, and comprise the section and the fiinial of the pen barrel, and the sprung "Ponte Vecchio" arched bridge clip, and the wide waist-band of the cap. The clip is of Visconti's "2L" style, with black ceramic detailing to highlight the company name. The style of the Visconti Torpedo fountain pen says definitely that it is made in Italy, with the smooth curves of the filigree decoration and the "industrial" faceted cowls on the cap and pen barrel.
