Visconti is delighted to announce the new 'Kaleido' collection, a colorful collaboration with USA resin manufacturer, Jonathon Brooks, of the 'Carolina Pen Company'.
Two spectacular but uniquely different resins were selected for their irresistible display of vibrant, shimmering colors: Unicorn Galaxy and Fire Opal. Both resins were selected for their color saturation and mystifying swirling. The Fire Opal is dusted with gold flecks to add to the luminescence of the orange resin and give a kaleidoscope effect. It is complemented by gold vermeil trim and a 14k gold nib.
The resin for each pen was made by Jonathon in the USA, and then sent to Italy where it was hand turned at Visconti's Florentine factory into their iconic 'Kaleido' pen model. A classic Visconti pen that is impeccably designed and weighted offering the perfect everyday writing experience.
Visconti goes further adding patented innovations that pen enthusiasts have to come to admire and appreciate from Visconti: the iconic 'Ponte Vecchio' bridge clip, Hook Safe Lock closure system, and Visconti's high power vacuum filling system. Finally Visconti adds a newly detailed ring with a swirled "V" logo design to accentuate the collection.
Each pen is individually numbered on the bottom of the barrel.
