Newest Acquisitions (Virtual "Show & Tell") ~ part 191

And now, more Delta goodness, courtesy of Jerred! Today's featured new acquisition is this '70s-inspired Delta fountain pen, in a colour which I love....

Jerred: "This fountain pen is part of Delta's "Anni Settanta" line. This was a line of pens designed by Delta with the stated goal of bringing to mind the design ethos and colors of the 1970s. 

 This is the second fountain pen I've purchased from this line, the first fountain pen was the "Mini" pen that I've shown pictures of before. I said at the time that I was unsure if there was a "full size" fountain pen in this lineup, as information is very difficult to come by. As it turns out, there definitely was a full sized pen, and this is one such example in a very 70s burnt orange colorway."

"Compared to the mini version, the full sized Anni Settanta is longer and slightly thicker, and has a different finial. The clip is also quite different. The sections between the two pens are identical, as is the #5.5, steel nib." 

"The nib is marked as a medium but writes on the finer side, but is quite smooth and overall a pleasant writer."

Many thanks, as always, to Jerred for his contributions to our ongoing virtual "show & tell":)
