What's new

What's in your pocket today?

Today I have an Italian pen. Universal Rex in blue, black and gold celluloid with Diamine Cornflower ink
These pens were made in Milan, Italy, by a company called Fratelli Cavaliere (Cavaliere brothers), they were famous for making Waterman's overlays as well as being the sole importers of the American brand from 1931 till the end of the 1930s. Company started in 1930 and closed around 1950.

Button filler and a smooth medium gold nib, impressive.

Sheaffer Legacy I, Barley Corn, gold trim, factory stub. Filled with Iroshizuku Rikyu-cha. What a treat this nib is!
My 1936 Parker Vacumatic, 0,8mm stub. The vacumatic system doesn't work any more. So I dip in my bottle of Montblanc Lavender Purple.
