This Maiora Libertà limited edition fountain pen features an ebonite body. Each fountain pen is made entirely of special ebonite, rich in chromatic shades, hand turned from a solid bar, then hand polished in order to obtain a perfect mirror surface. The gold vermeil over 925 sterling silver band placed on the fountain pen cap bears an ancient Pompeian decoration. The clip, made of special elastic metal, is equipped with a wheel that facilitates the insertion of the pen in the pocket. The barrel has a transparent window for checking the ink level. The pen is finished with a #6 JoWo 18kt gold nib.
This fountain pen is made with a piston mechanism, a reservoir concealed inside the barrel. Twist the blind cap counterclockwise until it stops; dip the entire nib into the ink bottle; draw ink into the pen by twisting the blind cap clockwise until it stops; remove the nib from the ink bottle; twist the blind cap half a turn counterclockwise, letting a little ink drop out to release air; clean the nib with a damp, lint-free cloth.
A United States exclusive, only 18 pens are available in this limited edition.
The Maiora Pen Company makes all of their pens by hand in Naples, Italy and is managed by the former co-founder and president of the Delta Pen Company. Maiora also produces fountain pens under the Nettuno brand.
A message from Nino Marino:
The great value of being free is often taken for granted, because it is generally a substantially recognized value, and doing what you love is freedom. To this quote, I would like to add a simple thought of mine: "true freedom is to be sought in ourselves, and if each of us can feel truly free, we will be able to build a better future."
"Libertà collection" wants to be a hymn to freedom for every human being. Writing is a journey in which each person expresses himself. Writing transforms our free thought into something that can remain indelible over time, it gives us pleasure, a pleasure that is not only linked to the beauty of the stroke, but to something that lives in our soul.
My personal thanks to you for choosing this fountain pen.
