Bologna Extra Arco Brown
It’s back … Armando Simoni Club introduces the Bologna Extra Arco Brown fountain pen. We have created a video for you to see the process of making this beauty from start to finish. Enjoy!
The pen is crafted from the same celluloid that Armando Simoni used beginning in the 1930s for his Arco Bronze pens.
This ASC model is larger in length and girth than the pens that Armando Simoni produced in this style. It is equipped with a larger vintage style roller clip in rose gold finish.
The Greek Key pattern appears on the cap band as it has since Armando Simoni introduced it on his pens. Greek Key bands now also decorate the barrel above the grip section.
Pen aficionados will appreciate the superb writing characteristics from the combination of a large (No. 8 size) ‘Magic Flex’ 14K solid gold nib with rose gold plating, and an innovative ebonite feed that flexes to provide superb ink flow. Everything about this design enables you to vary the line width by changing the amount of pressure on the nib as you write. Be careful not to push too hard, as you can bend this flexible nib.
The old-fashioned turning knob and piston is superseded by a large volume, quick-acting pneumatic filling system. Unscrew the cap at the top end of the barrel, pull the plunger outward, put your finger on the hole, immerse the nib in ink, then push the plunger into the barrel to fill the pen. Re-tighten the knob and you are ready to write.
The Manufacturers Suggested Retail Price is $1245.
