The Medici family served as inspiration for this Visconti model. They are well known for supporting a lot of famous artists and inspiring the birth of Renaissance. As a homage, Visconti designed a eight sides faceted design inspired from the baptistery of Florence. The new design asked for Acrosilk. This is a new material made from a mix of acrylic resin and silk fibers. Every pen is unique and a glossy chatoyant mix of light and dark brown gives it a wood like color. The Medici family symbol along with the name MEDICI is chiseled on the ring. Everything is complemented by Palladium plated trims.
This pen comes equipped with a single tone Visconti 18k Gold oversized nib that is manufactured in the Visconti workshop. You can choose the nib from the 5 sizes available: Extra Fine, Fine, Medium, Broad and Stub 1.3mm.
Generous ink capacity is available with the Visconti patented vacuum Power Filler. This filling system is made entirely from titanium resisting ink corrosion. The weight of this pen is well distributed making it comfortable for extended writing session. This pen can't be accidentally uncapped , it features the Hook Safe Lock trademark capping mechanism.
