Feel the writing! SCRIBO (Scrittura Bolognese) expresses their pen-making philosophy all in one beautifully hand-crafted fountain pen. The FEEL collection is not only the brand’s first fountain pen design, but it is also a column on which the future of the company will be built on. The body of the FEEL is turned by hand from a solid bar of acrylic resin and shaped into the style of a Doric column. A gentle, curving taper further enhances the profile of this faceted pen design. Removing the cap reveals a long, faceted section and, the real protagonist of this writing instrument, the nib.
The historic OMAS nib is the key component of the SCRIBO writing instrument. Using the same tooling and manufacturing methods once employed by the OMAS pen company, the FEEL is fitted with a 14kt gold "Feel the Flex" nib and ebonite feeder. The design enhances the always ready, generous, soft and precise writing experience.
Each FEEL piston-fill fountain pen is accompanied by a genuine leather and cotton handmade soft pouch to accommodate two writing instruments. A side pocket includes a cloth to keep your pens looking their best. SCRIBO provides a 3-year guarantee from the date of purchase on the quality craftsmanship of each pen.
The Scribo Feel has a very wet nib, so order the nib size to accommodate as your line will be wider. For line variations, I would recommend using a drier ink, as with minimal press... view moreure the volume of ink released negates any line variation.
The threads joining the cap to the body seems a little rough and I was concerned that it could be cross-threaded if not careful. It did seem to smooth out a little with use. I really like the plum-purple color, but for the price I expected a bit more depth with a higher quality resin.
Overall a beautifully writing pen and I do find myself reaching for it quite often. I think if the price point was a fair amount lower I would’ve been more satisfied. view less
