Thanks very much for looking at our listing for this wonderful ASC Bologna Extra China Bespoke Arco Verde Fountain Pen, which comes with its ASC presentation box. The pen has been lightly used and is presented in overall excellent condition – there is some wear to the gold-plating on the clip (shown in the photos). This was a special order for the original owner, as the China Bespoke pens had ruthenium trim, but ASC produced him one with gold-plated trim. It has the number 16 / 20 to match his Arco Bronze version.
The China Bespoke edition features an engraving on the cap and barrel bands resembling the great wall of China. This is a large oversized pen, but still very comfortable for both long and short writing sessions.
The pen is fitted with a size #8 18k bespoke ASC nib (ebonite feed), with an Architect grind It’s a pneumatic filler, so your choice here is bottled ink. You simply unscrew the end of the barrel, pull out the rod, and covering the small hole with your finger, plunge the rod back in towards the barrel to fill the ink reservoir.
The important details are as follows…
With every pen that we sell we provide a card that includes the manufacturer, model, serial / limitation number and date it was purchased from us. We do this because our customers like to have documentation showing that it’s been purchased from a trusted seller. As the Financial Times said recently in their How To Spend It publication – “izods is an e-cache of ultra fine fountain pens”.
