Our partnership with Leonardo Officina Italiana extends for almost 3 years, in this time we often talked about creating a pen together. Momento Zero Grande - Desert Rose is our first exclusive limited edition fountain pen. Created from purple ebonite that has the same pattern as vintage rosewood ebonite. Unique color pallet inspired by the elusive brown black Adenium flower also known as Desert Rose. To complement the dark purple ebonite this pen comes equipped with rhodium plated trim, only for preorders we will offer the option of rose gold plated trim.
Different from the base line model, our Desert Rose Grande features dome shape ends making the pen slightly shorter. A key feature of this exclusive pen is the cap band, on it we engraved the name of the collection. The small design features that we opted for make our pen to be slightly girthier in the middle. The clip along with the dimensions and shape of the section are identical to the Momento Zero Grande base model. This is a limited edition of 30 pieces only - retailed exclusively by Pen Venture.
This pen comes equipped with friction fitted 14k gold nibs and black Japanese ebonite feeds. Nibs are made in Germany by Peter Bock AG. You can choose from 5 size options : Extra Fine, Fine, Medium, Broad and 1.3mm Stub. Another popular option is a specialty nib, the Elastic Fine 14k Gold nib.
It is very easy to fill the pen. You don't need to unscrew the entire barrel. The blind cap gives access to the filling mechanism. The pen weight is well balanced with the help of the metal knob on top of the converter. Different from the standard Momento Zero, filling system on the Grande is a captured converter (non detachable) with a much more improved ink volume (1.2 ml).
Italian original quality. It is guaranteed for life against manufacturing defects.
