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 carefully used and is presented in overall excellent condition.
The China Bespoke edition features an engraving on the cap and barrel bands resembling the great wall of China. The trim on this edition is ruthenium-plated. 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 14k magiflex ASC nib (ebonite feed) and 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. There is a little sideways movement when you pull the rod out, but if fills strongly and correctly.
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”.
