Product description

Santini Libra fountain pen, made from resin in Laurel dark green color, a classical designed pen with 18 / 750 carat gold nib and a piston filling system.
The cap ring is engraved with 'Santini Italia' and is gold plated, as are the ring and the clip, which has a ball, which makes it easy to slide it in shirt or vest pocket. The gold nib features an S with 1998 (the year Giovanni Santini started pen manufacturing) and has scrollwork around it.
The piston works smooth and when you fill the pen and have reached the top of the piston, the unit will click, to let you know it wont go higher and to prevent from it being twisted too hard.
Santini Italia Santini has been making pens since 1998 and is presenting a line of elegant pens at affordable prices when you consider the craftsmanship you get. Each Santini pen is made in Italy and the nibs are made in house.

I like the size (for comparison: quite a bit larger that a Pelikan M800), the length of the section (even longer than an Aurora Optima), the very smooth cap threads. The pen is pretty light as well (partially inked 19.9 g for the pen, 12.0 g for the cap). Also happy about the options you have in material, and even though the laurel normally comes with gold trim you can specify rhodium trim as well Slightly less happy/nitpicking about the laurel acrylic: it ranges form a beautiful green with a lot of chatoyance to a very dark green, nearly black when you rotate the pen. The cap needs almost 1 1/2 turn to uncap, and when capping you need to pay a little attention to prevent cross-threading (the downside of those very smooth threads). The acrylic is just a tiny bit translucent, but not nearly enough to see ink levels. The is no ink window. In the overall design I would have liked the cap band to have some greek key design (now it's just very shiny), and the cap to taper just a but more below the cap band. Then the nib and feed. In house nib and ebonite feed. The nib is tested by Santini, and you get the paper where they tested to show you. I'm still getting used to the flex nib. It requires a bit of pressure to get it to flex, but it easily turns a fine into a generous broad without giving the feeling that you're pushing it too far. You can use the pen for normal writing without any problems, it just flexes when you want it to. The nib gives quite a bit of feedback, though I don't mind it it gives it a bit of character. So in all: close to perfection (and that's without taking the price into account). It could just be that this *is* my grail pen...

The Santini Libra is standing out in an ocean of fountain pens by design, materials, price and the quality and personality of its nib. The only negative point is the low ink capacity. I purchased the pen with a broad nib and consider to add a second Santini with a fine nib.
