French for "curve", this elegant Virage fountain pen was handcrafted using an Italian made Madrepearlato (mother of pearl) acrylic. The colour is a deep, rich, olive green (olive verde) and provides a striking appearance against the gold finish of the pen. The cap posts onto the barrel for flexibility in writing weight of the pen. The nib is a #5, German made, iridium tipped steel nib designed for smooth writing and longevity. The pen comes with an international fit converter so you can use your own bottle ink or if you choose, use long or short prefilled cartridges.
