The Pineider Avatar UR Deluxe fountain pen collection was designed by Dante Del Vecchio. The Avatar is a pen that marks a step ahead in pen manufacturing through the use of a revolutionary UltraResin, a new GlueLess assembly process, and a special cap lock design that provides extra protection. This pink resin Avatar UR Deluxe fountain pen features gold trim, a resin grip, and Pineider's flexible 14kt gold Quill nib.
Over the last 100 years, the solution to pen breakages has come from the incredible features of celluloid, the sole material able to join incredible beauty and a very high resistance to hits. In the 1920's, fountain pen makers would throw pens from an airplane to demonstrate the resistance of celluloid to impacts. Unfortunately, celluloid has poor heat resistance and can easily crystallize with age (that rapidly leads to the complete loss of the pen), and it is extremely difficult to make.
Introducing UltraResin, a special formula of mother of pearl compound resin developed in Florence for Pineider. This compound is very stiff and its exceptional features makes it far better than celluloid for the creation of fine fountain pens. UltraResin is extremely rigid (nearly like metal), incredibly resistant to hits, and very close to unbreakable. UltraResin is also resistant to oils, inks, electricity, to high and low temperatures, to UV rays, to any weathering condition.
Pineider technicians made this material suitable for luxury products with an extremely glossy surface and it can feature a mother of pearl look with marbleized colors, a deep black, or even a clear effect.
To produce the new Avatar, a new assembly technology has been developed called GlueLess. Thanks to 3D engineering and high precision manufacturing, the Avatar is assembled without using a single drop of glue. A technological puzzle but one where every component fits precisely and securely together with just simple framed parts.
The Avatar closes via a magnetic twist cap that has been designed to last. A film over the internal magnet functions to protect the magnet from corrosion and allows a soft touch closure.
A sophisticated solid marine steel clip is comprised from an inner spring mechanism built in the cap top of the pen.
Just like an avatar becomes a virtual alter ego for an individual, this pen is designed to serve as an inseparable lifestyle companion. The rounded form and vibrant color represents the dynamic vitality of youth. The marine steel clip is Pineider's interpretation of a goose quill, sturdy yet flexible. While each pen is designed to become the alter ego of its owner, Pineider designed the centerband to be the avatar of the city it has proudly called home for the last 240 years, Florence, in honor of the love and affection all Florentines have for the firm's illustrious name.

Have always wanted one of these since I saw them in their NY store. Was especially excited about the quill nib. It’s an absolute pleasure to write with. Get one? 100%!

lovely pen smooth writer
this pen is really beautiful and I love the magnetic cap snap. However it is a bit finicky and you have to be careful as to what kind of ink you put into it. Once I learned the importance of that, I have had no problems whatsoever
New to Pineider
I recently acquired the Pineider Avatar Deluxe Fountain Pen with the 14K gold quill medium nib. I have found the pen to be easy to write with, and the nib is very soft allowing for a semi-calligraphy experience. The pen is well balanced, and comfortable in the hand. The nib does take some getting used to, but I am looking forward to spending much time writing with this pen.
Beautiful flex writer
My first Pineider and super happy with it. Gorgeous blue finish. Nib is very soft and flexy and takes some getting used to, but it’s a lovely wet writer.
Pineider Avatar Deluxe Fountain Pen
The product was sent to me in a timely manner. In fact, a few days earlier then initially told. The pen is wet and wrights very well. Very smooth writing which I like very much. The only problem was the color was slightly different from what I thought. I ordered "Avalon Green" but it appears more light-blue. I like it anyway. Online picture may not convey the exact color.
