This superb nib is the highest value nib ever manufactured in fountain pen history and writing with it requires absolutely no pressure! Visconti claims an enhancement of 30% in flexibility over any premium 18-Karat gold nibs. Palladium makes a superb nib material because it cannot be corroded by inks.

It comes with a Visconti twist piston converter, but you can also use a standard universal ink cartridge.
