Pineider La Grande Bellezza Full Metal Jacket Lightning fountain pen Hyperflex
Item no: P3105446E
Pineider has renewed the La Grande Bellezza collection. The spiritual father of this collection, Dante del Vecchio, created a new metallic UltraResin variant that has been given the name "Full Metal Jacket", in reference to the memorable Stanley Kubrick film.
"UltraResin" is an extremely durable new material. It is particularly stiff like metal and is almost unbreakable, resistant to oil, ink, changing temperatures and UV radiation.
The Grande Bellezza is available in two variants, one with a large # 6 semi-flex steel nib, refillable with cartridges or the supplied converter, or with a 14-karat gold "Hyperflex" nib fitted with a fixed plunger. The flexibility of the gold nibs is obtained by slightly cutting the pen blade on both sides. This creates a subtle line variation even with a small pressure difference. In addition to the fountain pen, a matching roller and ballpoint is also available.
The clip is modeled after a quill pen. The cap of the fountain pen and the roller model is fitted with a magnetic closure, the so-called "soft touch magnetic lock". This fountain pen comes in a beautiful gift box.
The history of Pineider's house begins in Florence, in Piazza della Signoria. Here they have been selling beautiful handmade paper, diaries and pens since 1774. Celebrities such as Napoleon, Stendhal and Lord Byron were customers.
