Delta - Chatterley Dolcevita Fusion Star, Sole
This another limited edition in the Delta-Chatterley Fusion Star line.
Delta uses the Dolcevita body, cap and internal mechanism to create the pens. They produce a limited production run exclusively for Chatterley Luxuries/PenTime. There are there are only 18 pens made and I am pleased to have pen #13.
Why so many of these pens you ask? The body is right for my hand. The colours arre stylish and impressive. This pen in bright cheerful yellow I refer to as my Lemoncello pen, and will be taking it with me to our 2014 visit to the Amalfi Coast. The series is also fitted with the Fusion nib available in a stub width. That was a clincher.
The cap has a star logo fitted at the end, and this reflects the name of this line - The Fusion Star collection. The clip and the band/trim are sterling silver. The clip is sturdy a small ball helps with fixing the clip in a shirt pocket.
There is a small cap at then end of the pen body that covers the piston fill system. Just unscrew the cap and you can twist the top of the piston to expel or draw up ink. I like the Delta ratchet piston systesm. It produces a series of clicks when you have turned it to the fullest. No concern of stripping threads.
A small window just above the threads shows if there is ink in the chamber.
The nib on this pen is the new Delta Fusion nib in a number six size. This is a steel nib with a layer of 18 kt gold fussed.
Delta produces this nib at their production centre, located just outside of Naples.
A truly unique pen in terms of the colours and patterns of the resin. Only eight were produced and the pen is no longer availalbe.
