Leonardo Momentous Zero Abyss
The service and delivery was first class..
The pen is a great colour and finish are excellent as is the writing experience....
But there is one major issue and that’s the filling system, the piston twist cap was almost impossible to turn and i was very close to me returning the pen... however after struggling for sometime I managed to get it working and I am hopeful that with use it will free itself...
Incredibly well designed for comfort and long writing. Very beautiful design that is not flashy. Pen is very light but feels substantial. Note that the medium gold nib runs somewhat broad with many inks. Behaves well with certain inks, though. And Fonto service is, as always, is a model of customer service. Lightning fast shipping. Thanks!
Italian Tradition, Modern Artistry: The Pens of Leonardo Officina
If you’re reading this, you are among the many fountain pen lovers that still exist in the world who seek to have beauty in the hand. As someone whose collection leans towards pens made from Italy, I consider pens from Leonardo a beautiful throwback to the best in Italian aesthetic and tradition. Like you, I ‘ve seen the various Instagram photos and have caught a review here and there about Leonardo pens, but seeing Fontoplumo’s video on the pen gave me the courage to take a leap on a pen only seen.
And I’m happy to report: it was a leap worth taking. The celluloid is wonderful in the hands: a bit heavier and with slightly more girth than an Omas Paragon. A well-balanced pen - posted or not - and with a nib (in this case a stub) that is smooth with just enough flex to make the handwriting interesting but controlled. The feel on the page is as if you are writing on smooth leather, not glass and provides a sense of connectedness to the page – without feedback. Maybe just short of a singing nib. Wonderful.
With the loss of Omas, Leonardo over time will likely be viewed as one that carries on the finest Italian tradition. I can easily see adding one or two Leonardo’s in my collection’s future and if you’re hesitant: don’t. Get one in your hands: it will likely never leave…
