Thanks very much for looking at our listing for this Leonardo Momento Zero Grande Primary Manipulation LE 2020 Vesuvio Second Batch Fountain Pen, which comes with its Leonardo presentation box (including outer) and information booklet – confirming first purchase on 16th December 2020. The pen has barely been used and is presented in wonderful condition. The Second Batch pens are easily distinguishable as they have two cap rings rather than three.
If you’ve come this far, then you’ll likely know about Primary Manipulation! If not, here’s a quick introduction – the resin used for this pen is made by US resin maker Jonathan Brooks. He’s renowned for his Primary Manipulation resins, which have to be seen to be appreciated. Working with Leonardo, this is the 2020 Second Batch, of which only 50 (unnumbered) of each of the two colours were produced. This Vesuvio version, with its delightful red, purple, orange and even blue colour scheme.
The pen is a piston filler, so your choice here is bottled ink. The pen is fitted with a 14k size #6 medium nib and it features an ebonite feed.
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”.
