The Widest Range of Pens on the Planet!
The highest quality writing instruments on the planet.
Pineider goes back to 1774, with a reputation for making some of the finest paper, leather goods and writing instruments in the world. With new ownership, and a renewed commitment to Italian quality, history and craftsmanship, Pineider also wanted a truly innovative pen range.
One of the most renowned and respected pen designers in the world had just split up with his previous company. Dante Del Vecchio was available, and full of ideas. They got together, and Dante has designed some pens and accessories that are both beautiful and highly practical.
The Full Metal Jacket Fountain Pen is so-called because of the metallic effect given to the 'UltraResin' barrel, and it's also a tribute to the classic film by Stanley Kubrick.
'UltraResin' is extremely robust and the pen is constucted using a method known as 'GlueLess', making it virtually unbreakable. The clip is shaped like a quill, yet remains practical in use. There's a spring mechanism inside the cap that lets the clip open very wide, so it can hold onto even very thick pockets and bags, while a little upward turn at the tip makes it easy to attach.
The metal ring around the cap is inscribed with 'Pineider' and the glossy black grip area is decorated with a series of indented rings.
When you uncap the pen, the pull cap feels a little different. It's held in place by magnets, making it quick and easy to cap and uncap, while making a good seal. The magnetic poles are lined up in the cap and barrel, so twisting the cap a half turn will cause it to jump open, pushed by the same magnets that were holding it closed. It's just a little smoother to do than pulling alone.
The nib is 14-karat gold, and specially shaped to give you a bit of line variation with pressure, so your writing has a little more style and expressiveness. Pineider call it a 'hyperflex' nib. The broad and stub nibs are shaped slightly differently, so they give less line variation, as they're starting with an already broad line.
The same magnets in the cap that hold the pen closed, also hold the cap on the end of the barrel when writing with the pen posted. It's quicker and easier than a friction fit, and avoids the risk of marking the barrel.
The overall result is a pen that's really been thought through with the attention to detail and innovation that could only come from Dante Del Vecchio. A luxury pen, yes, definitely, but one that's clearly been designed to be nice to actually use every day, not just to look at.
