The pen comes with special features, of course; for instance, it combats leakage - variations in pressure or temperature at high altitude or during air travel cause the air to expand in the reservoir and this, in turn, causes the ink to spill out from the nib.
To solve this problem, the Ripple HRH is equipped with a double reservoir power filling system which allows the pen to be refilled with the desired quantity of ink, the volume depending on the size of the pen and the plunger, avoiding leakage of any kind.
All parts of the Visconti pens, except the nibs, are made by hand and sourced from Germany. The buyer can customise the size of the nib to suit his needs.
Handcrafted by Italian worksmen from Visconti’s headquarters in a 15th century villa in Florence, the hotbed of the Renaissance movement, the pen comes with a piece of history as well.
