TAMITIO The slim metal barrel promises stylish writing pleasure whose fine fluting is a real eye-catcher. Its surface also attests to its meticulous craftsmanship: the technically-innovative varnish created specially for the “Tamitio” is applied several times and imparts it with a durable, noble, matt look. Highly polished front and end pieces accent the barrel to great affect just like the subtlety engraved “Handmade in Germany” seal of quality. Fountain pen uses a cartridge/converter system that slides gently out of the barrel on turning the end cap. The nib is high-quality rhodium plated stainless steel.
