In addition, the pen nib can be replaced with all glass nibs from Bortoletti’s production; they are handmade and each nib is unique.
The set is sold with a 15 ml bottle of Hamburg calligraphy ink in an elegant gift box with gold branded logo.
The invention of the glass nib dates back to the 1800s, made on the famous island of Murano by skilled glass masters.
The skill of the master glassmakers made it possible to create true works of art that were very much in vogue before the invention of fountain pens and became very popular around the world.
The nib of the Contarini pen is worked with a bronze metal mold to imprint the characteristic twisted grooves that hold the ink.
Dipped in ink, it lets it flow downward slowly onto the paper and allows a considerable amount of ink to be held on the nib by spiral swirls.
In addition, glass nibs are suitable for drawing and writing and for all those who love Venetian style and elegance.
Italic Italic, Mono-line Italic, and American Italic are some examples of calligraphic styles perfect for these instruments.
The glass nib of the Contarini pen is suitable for all types of ink, allows a cash flow similar to that of fountain pens, and is easily cleaned with water.
The nib is machined with a metal mold to imprint the characteristic twisted grooves that enables it to hold a considerable amount of ink.
To give calligraphy an original and special touch, the glass nib is the perfect choice. Also suitable for lefties and all inks.
