The newest project of Leonardo Officina Italiana bears the name Cuspide.
Leonardo Officina Italiana is the first company in the world to use this type of acrylic sheet assembly system, a multi-layer system that gives this truly unique and fascinating visual effect.
The effect of the depth and texture is given by the assembly of sheets of acrylic, the fusion of these sheets is obtained through a casting of dark resin that will become the cusp only after a complex oblique cut.
Each and every pen is crafted from the same resin bar so the design from the body continues beautifully on the cap as well.
The name Cuspide comes from the curved lines inside the resin that characterizes this material. The material is inspired by the "Lance Cusp" used by ancient warriors in the centuries VII-VI BC. In fact, the pattern present in in the darker parts of the acrylic recalls the curve of the spear tip.
The decoration of the central band of the cap is a geometric pattern that will be shown on the limited collections only for the year of 2020, the following collections will have a different design.
The pattern is reminiscent of the period know in history as ”Geometric Art” and it was used traditionally by the Greek civilization between the years 900 and 700 BC on ceramic production.
The Cuspide series is limited to only 70 pieces per color: blue sea, mineral grey, nocciola, olive green.
With a vintage filling system with a classic piston, an ebonite feed and gold nib, this series impresses not only visually, but also with the new and exclusive design.
The nibs used for EF, F, M, B, Stub and Elastic Fine are 14k Gold made by JOWO, and the Music nib is a 14k Gold one made by Bock.
The fountain pen is supplied with a 40ml bottle of blue ink and a lifetime warranty on any manufacturing defect.
