Newest Acquisitions (Virtual "Show & Tell") ~ part 2

Continuing on with our virtual "show & tell", we have a lovely modern Italian fountain pen recently acquired by one of our newer members, Louise:

In Louise's words: "It’s a Santini Libra in Cherry Ebonite (LE of 33). It arrived in a giant wooden box. I got a fine flex nib and while I haven’t gotten a chance to use it extensively yet, I’m finding the nib lovely. I don’t have many flex nibs to compare it to though. It’s a piston filler and it’s got that ratchet thing to prevent you from overturning the piston. It’s pretty light. I’ve filled it with Montblanc Antoine de Saint-ExupĂ©ry. Good match, I think! Looking forward to playing around with this more."

Many thanks, Louise, for sharing one of your newest pen purchases with us! For more information on the Santini pen company, check out their website here.
