This exquisite fountain pen is handcrafted from French cellulose acetate by creative craftspeople who have combined sheets of tortoiseshell and mother of pearl. Particular skills is applied when making the Le Majestic Pétrarque Celluloid as each fountain pen has to be finalized by focusing on the color alignment between the cap and the upper cap section of the pen’s body. The pen section has a slightly concave hourglass shape, with no step-down from the body, making this a very comfortable pen to use during long writing sessions. The screw cap, which can be posted, has a stainless steel pen clip with a subtle, clean design that you might find your fidgeting with while deep in thought. The Pétrarque Celluloid Le Majestic fountain pen is available with your choice of a steel, gold-plated steel, titanium or gold Bock Nibs in a range of extra fine, fine and medium nib sizes. If you chose a gold nib, your pen will arrive with a matching gold-plated stainless steel pen clip. It uses an International ink filling cartridge or converter. This is a beautiful fountain pen that provides a smooth writing experience and is extremely nice to hold. It comes packaged in an elegant Faggionato gift box.
What is Cellulose Acetate?
Cellulose acetate is a resin made when plant fibers are processed, dyed, then heated and bonded together with solvents to produce colorful blanks. The blanks are stored in a specialized chamber for several weeks for drying and then the solvents are removed using evaporation. The blanks are then cut, turned and polished into pens. Faggionato’s whole process is carried out in France.
