Pre-Owned Pens: 4089 Visconti Manhattan
Era: 1980-present   Fountain Pen Nib Size: F
Price: $499.99
Borrowing the best from the designs of the Parker Vacumatic and Waterman 94, the Visconti Manhattan in burgundy striped celluloid is a head-turning stunner. Barely used, this pen looks like it belongs in a museum it is so minty fresh. Its barrel is very clear for a quick check of the ink level within. You fill the pen with the Visconti "Power Filler" system, which was based on the old Sheaffer Vacuum-Fill piston filler. It holds A LOT of ink. Its 18k gold nib writes a fine line with a little feedback. YET, you can also get a little flex out of the nib for some line variation. As it is 18k gold, be careful not to spring the nib. It comes with its box and papers. Unfortunately, its box has a wearing-away crease line where the lid comes up. 13.8cm capped.
