Tibaldi Bononia Martini Olive Fountain Pen
This vintage-inspired Tibaldi Bononia fountain pen features a striated green resin body and cap and palladium-plated trim. Three trim rings adorn the tapered screw-cap, which pushes to post. The pen fills via the included standard international converter or short standard international cartridges. It comes with a #6 size steel nib made in Italy and an ebonite feed.
Authentically Italian, this brand is heart-beating since 1916. Originated in Florence by Giuseppe Tibaldi - a man with a singular passion for making pens. Today's collections of pens form a powerful shortlist of iconic pieces from the archives, blending streetstyle trends with fashion metrics.
I am still learning a lot about fountain pens and everyone at Truphae are very knowledgeable. They even help with my writing style with the right nibs and learning more about the inks.
Pen looks beautiful but I felt quality was not great. Cap threads did not screw well on body of pen and the nib was horrible. It did not write when I inked it. Pen is also relatively small in size. There was also shavings of resin all over the pen when I received it. Tibaldi did not even bother to brush off the pen after the finish... Not great for this price point.
