The Visconti Torpedo is a limited edition fountain pen inspired by an Italian design trend called Bolidismo that focuses on shape dynamism, early 20th Century Futurism and a reference to design strongly influenced by the world of fast cars. The Torpedo's name alludes to both a sleek and sporting car and to the English term for torpedo - a shape designed by the need for speed. The Oversized Visconti Torpedo Limited Edition fountain pen is made from unidirectional Black Carbon fiber with highly polished Palladium-plated trim.

Visconti Torpedo Fountain Pen

The Visconti Torpedo is a limited edition fountain pen inspired by an Italian design trend called Bolidismo that focuses on shape dynamism, early 20th Century Futurism and a reference to design strongly influenced by the world of fast cars. The Torpedo's name alludes to both a sleek and sporting car and to the English term for torpedo - a shape designed by the need for speed.

The oversized Visconti Torpedo Limited Edition fountain pen is made from unidirectional Black Carbon fiber with highly polished Palladium-plated trim. It has an ogival shape of roundly tapered ends that is both dynamic and aerodynamic. It integrates two of Visconti’s traditional aesthetic codes for high-end pens: skeleton processing and the transparency of the demo models. The body features an Palladium-plated design pattern that enhances its sleekness and frames an oversized ink window so you can check the remaining ink in the barrel. The transparent acrylic resin window has been worked to align with the carbon fiber body, thus contributing to the fluidity of the design. The Visconti Torpedo has a double reservoir power ink filler system. The threaded screw-on cap can be posted. The Torpedo fountain pen is equipped with a 23-Karat Palladium Dreamtouch nib available in Medium size. This nib is suggested for expert writers as it adapts perfectly to your hand’s habits. It is very flexible and smooth, but with medium elasticity and resilience. There are only 388 pieces of this Limited Edition Visconti Torpedo fountain pen available worldwide.

About Visconti

Started in 1988, Visconti has become synonymous with extraordinarily elegant writing instruments. Visconti believes that luxury is not just price, but most of all the uniqueness of the piece, the special manufacturing process, the craftsmanship skills used, the materials and the finishing. The elegant designs of their fountain pens, rollerball pens and ballpoint pens come from intense historical and technological research. They brought the writing industry back to Florence after a period of absence and turned Florentine and Italian craftsmanship into product icons that represent their fundamental values of Italian Design, Creativity, Craftsmanship, Quality and Luxury. Visconti has preserved the old world pen craftsmanship techniques, updating them to create modern writing instruments using new materials (Volcanic Lava, unidirectional carbon, cotto tile). Visconti is one of the most important players in the worldwide luxury pen market and has introduced many innovative technical solutions (lock system, double filler, travelling ink-pot, Palladium 23-karat nib) which continue to elevate its fine writing instruments. All products show strong attention to detail and unique features.
