Philadelphia Show – Visconti Declaration of Independence LE

Friday, January 14th, 2011

Penopoly is joining Visconti in introducing their new Declaration of Independence limited edition pen. This pen will have 776 pens available in silver trim and 76 pens with 18K rose gold trim. The pen is available as a fountain pen or rollerball. Penopoly will also be able to supply specialty nibs such as extra fine, broad, and stub on request. Please contact us Ron Lee, if you are interested in reserving a pen.



The Visconti ‘Declaration of Independence’ Fountain Pen

Visconti uses their sophisticated scrimshaw technique to replicate the full text of the Declaration of Independence into the barrel of the pen. The writing is small, just large enough to be legible to the naked eye but still small enough to leave room to inscribe images of the founding Fathers who drafted the act. A specially engraved magnifying glass is included with each pen to pay closer attention to the intricate details.

All trims are made of aged sterling silver * and are elaborately ornate. The blind cap is intricately engraved with the American bald eagle, a symbol of Freedom. Inside the pen is a very special surprise: the mechanism of the plunger is operated by the Liberty Bell, an iconic symbol of American Independence.

The pen and magnifying glass are packaged together with a scroll in a special collector’s edition box made from American walnut wood. The top of the box is made from leather and is engraved with the names of the signatories from the historic act.

Visconti Carbon Dream – In Stock!

Saturday, January 1st, 2011

Penopoly has two of the Visconti Carbon Dream LE pens in stock. Retail price is $1950. Email me for a quote.

We can provide specialty nibs like extra fine, stub, broad, etc. The pen comes in a presentation box with a unique carbon fiber inkwell. This is the first time carbon fiber technology has been used in an inkwell.



Carbon Dream is a fountain pen limited edition to 993 units. It represents a milestone in carbon fibre workmanship – for the first time in pen history the fine carbon weaving has been cut into the characteristic design of the Ripple, a Visconti manufacturing icon. The transparent resin adds deepness to the pen and allows you to catch a glimpse of the famous mechanism of the Double Reservoir for which Visconti has obtained the American invention patent and all metal parts are turned on a lathe in titanium grade 5.

Thus this unique demonstrator pen joins the two technological materials par excellence – carbon fibre and titanium.
