The Gioia Partenope fountain pen features a stroke of design genius combining a fountain pen (cartridge/converter compatible with standard international size) and rollerball pen (compatible with Parker-style ballpoint pen refills) in a single design.
The Gioia Partenope fountain pen clip is made using an ancient goldsmith's technique called "lost wax casting" and the finial depicts the beauty of the Gulf of Naples. The Gioia Partenope fountain pen's enameled crown is created using a 3D process. The various design elements combine to create a modern silhouette that is obviously born of Italy.
Each Gioia Partenope fountain pen features a double ink filling system (piston filling and standard cartridge), and is fitted with an iridium-tipped #6 JoWo steel nib available in varying nib sizes.
Changing the Gioia Partenope from a fountain pen to a rollerball and back again is simple. Just unscrew the front portion of the pen (including the nib or tip and section) from the barrel and replace the entire front section with the alternate version.
