Delta is back, with a brand new limited edition fountain pen in celebration of the 40th anniversary of the founding of the Delta Pen Company!
The new "39+1" collection is a limited edition of only 399 individually numbered pieces. This fountain pen is made of a rare celluloid, impossible to reproduce today. This mottled black and brown celluloid was previously used to make the Delta Enrico Caruso limited edition. The barrel and cap are highly polished, and the pen is complemented by gold vermeil trim (gold over sterling silver).
The pen fills via standard international cartridge/converter (included), and is also eyedropper fillable.
A new patented feature is the Write Balance system. Within the threaded cone at the barrel end of the fountain pen is a gold-plated 2-gram removable weight. You can keep it inserted into this cone for a more back-weighted pen, or you can remove it to shift the pen's balance more towards the front. A back-weighted pen allows you more control of the fountain pen's movements which is ideal for calligraphers and letters, while a front-weighted pen allows the pen to do more of the work which is ideal for longer or casual writing sessions.
A variety of nibs are available for this pen, including 18k gold nibs and 14k flexible gold nibs all made by JoWo, each engraved with the Delta signature logo.
The barrel features a deeply curved grip section leading into gold-plated threading. From there, the barrel flares into a rounded body that feels substantial in the hand, ending in the severe conical blind cap that contains the two-gram Weight Balance. The straight-bodied cap ends in a taper, a common element of Italian pen design.
A single gold-plated barrel ring toward the section marks the place where the barrel twists off for cartridge and converter filling, or to fill the entire barrel with an eyedropper, and a gold band at the conical tip is engraved with the edition number. The gold-plated roller clip features DELTA logo engraving, and a gold-plated cap band features elegant scrollwork.
