Have a pen, or other writing paraphernalia, that's never been offered through Massdrop? Perhaps something you really enjoy? Care to share it with us? If so, even if it has dropped in the past, share it with us anyway :)
Mine is the Delta Magnifica Amalfi.
I have, until very recently, been reluctant to embrace traditional ornate fountain pens. They've always felt a bit too ostentatious to me; usually oversized, often excessively colorful, sometimes garishly ornate, rarely any regard for restraint, and always very expensive. But... I had set my mind on owning at least one fountain pen with a solid gold nib. What's more ostentatious than gold?
Long story short, I ended up with the Amalfi. Somehow, despite everything to the contrary, it manages to be tasteful, and quite simply, IMHO, beautiful. It also has everything I was looking for in a fountain pen:
It is very well balanced, posted or otherwise; very comfortable to hold and the #6 fine nib is buttery smooth.
Like many Deltas it's a piston filler, but it's also a converter. The converter is operated by removing the rear cap.
The craftsmanship, quality of the materials (olive wood, resin and metal) and attention to detail are something to be appreciated in person; photos don't do it justice.
So there you have it, the pen I enjoy the most is the one I never thought I'd consider, until I did.
