Newest Acquisitions (Virtual "Show & Tell") ~ part 13

The next pen-related item in our virtual "show & tell" is a very unusual-looking fountain pen owned by Jerred---the Delta 'Fluida':

In Jerred's words: "This particular oddball of a pen is called the Delta "Fluida". It dates from the early 2000s, and it shares design details from a few other pens that Delta sold at the time such as the Y2K and the Mini Trend. The heavily curved and flared barrel, however, is quite unique. Also, as far as I can tell it serves no practical purpose - even in the smallest hands, the curve does not sit in the webbing of your thumb. The pen is made of anodized aluminum, and my particular example is in light pink."

"The nib was a remarkably nice writer out of the box,. Uncommonly for Delta, the nib does not have a logo or pattern on it."

Many thanks to Jerred for sharing another interesting find with us!
