Visconti has combined their iconic Skeleton design with a highly advanced material to create the new Alutex Skeleton! Visconti cuts into the fine weave of Aluminium fibre to create the overlay of their latest pen. This is an intricate and difficult process which involves cutting the fine aluminium weave into the characteristic design of the Skeleton, a Visconti manufacturing icon. In the watch industry skeleton means "cut-out-mechanism".
Underneath the Skeleton overlay is transparent ‘demonstrator’ resin, enabling you to clearly see all mechanical details of the pen; nib, filling piston and the exclusive Visconti double reservoir system; This unique filling system retains up to 7 times the amount of ink in most fountain pens, yet allows the traveller to travel with peace of mind while keeping the pen filled with ink. The nib is a magnificent two-tone 23 Kt. nib, available in XF/F/M/B/BB and Stub.
