Newest Acquisitions (Virtual "Show & Tell") ~ part 80

What's a VPC online show & tell without another interesting lesser-known Italian fountain pen belonging to Jerred? :)

Jerred: "This is a Delta Titanio.  The Titanio was a special edition Delta and as was common for the company, it was released in three trim levels.  This is the top-end finish, made from a unique black/grey swirled acrylic."

  "The cap and body bands are made from titanium.  The cap band is marked with 'Ti-22', the periodic table symbol for titanium."


  "However, the nib is what makes this pen special - it is solid titanium.  This is the only set of Delta pens released that use titanium nibs.  This particular nib is Bock's first-generation titanium nib, and is quite soft.  However, it was found that these nibs were quite easy to spring if care was not taken when writing.  It has somewhat unique feedback for a nib, different than any other nib I've used." 

  Jerred--thank you for sharing your thoughts on your beautiful new acquisition, and some great photos of it, too!
