From the first glance the precious writing implements from the new Anello Classic Collection seduce one into taking them into one’s hand. Fountain pens, roller-ball pens, propelling ballpoint pens and propelling pencils have ebony barrels into which filigree rings have been incorporated. They dominate the purist look of the writing implements and lend the collection its name – “Anello” (Italian for “ring”).
What forms a refined contrast visually proves to be a perfect tactile combination: the transitions between the ebony segments and the delicate precious metal rings are barely perceptible. Lying optimally in the hand, the writing instruments have pleasantly even surfaces which give the impression the barrels are made out of one single piece.
The fountain pen is equipped with a practical cartridge/converter system and a bicoloured 18-carat gold nib with iridium tip.
The propelling pencil uses break-resistant 0.7 mm leads of hardness B with a reservoir for spare leads, and under the removable cap is a replaceable white eraser.
The ball-point pen is equipped with a large-capacity refill in standard size such as is available internationally.
The roller-ball pen has a precision point which glides smoothly over the paper.
