A Magnificent Fountain Pen!

By

I agree with John about the size of the pen and its nib - it is the fattest pen I own (fatter than a Pelikan M1000) and a pleasure to hold and write with.

The broad nib is smooth and generous with its ink (I'm using Pilot Iroshizuku Fuyu-gaki - it matches the colour of the pen very well), with no skipping or drying up mid-sentence.

I can confirm its suitability as an eye-dropper too - the minute I got it it was out with the converter and in with a whopping 12ml of the Pilot ink. The barrel thread is well cut and there is a rubber seal too, but just to be totally safe I used a smear of silicone grease on the thread too to ensure no leakage.

I've used the pen for a week now, storing it horizontally, and all is well. This really is a magnificent example of the Italian pen-makers work.

This is a fine pen with a large diameter barrel, yet quite short, about 5.5 inches when closed. The nib is large and flexible. Even the clip has an unusual small wheel, the better to attach to a jacket pocket.

I have only used the converter thus far. The instruction leaflet makes no mention of the pen's capability as an eyedropper filler, so I am a little sceptical of this possibility.

Questions (1)

Is it true that the barrel can be filled with ink? I bought one of these pens and have only used it with a cartridge converter. There is no mention in the instructions that it can be used as an eyedropper model.

Asked by John Henson

The Oversize Dolcevita maybe used as an eyedropper - simply remove the converter/cartridge and carefully fill the barrel before screwing the grip section back on the front of the pen.
