Delta pens are known for being durable, yet elegant pens that soothe the eye and comforts the hand. Delta's award winning designers and pen makers have brought generations of experience to create prized writing instruments for the world's most demanding writers and collectors. In 1982, a new innovative Italian writing instruments factory was established through the partnership of Nino Marino, Ciro Matrone and Mario Muscente, named Delta Srl. From the beginning, Delta has chosen only the highest product standards to enter into the very demanding and competitive international consumer market. Delta has chosen to control every aspect of the pen manufacturing process in its southern Italian facility under the watchful eyes of its skilled artisans. Over the last 35 years, Delta has finely tuned its processes, raising the quality of the final product to near perfection. This level of attention to detail has established Delta in a category of its own.
