Armando Simoni Club introduces a trio of Bologna Extra celluloid fountain pens decorated in the Art Deco style.
Each Three Kings pen has a special custom nib, created by Mark Bacas, the nib master at nibgrinder.com. He starts with our 18k gold ASC Magic Flex nibs, and modifies them for special writing characteristics. Only fifty numbered sets of the Three Kings will be produced.
Arco Verde – has ruthenium trim in a medium grey tone that echoes the celluloid colors. The matching triple broad stub nib is finished as a cursive smooth italic (CSI), which produces wonderful bold writing.
Arco Bronze – has rhodium trim with silver and grey contrasts in the Art Deco pattern. The matching nib has an extra, extra fine (XXF) point that produces a smooth thin line, suitable for writing and drawing.
Burlwood – has yellow gold trim with shiny and matt contrasts in the Art Deco decoration. The matching Architect/Hebrew/Arabic (AHA) nib produces a thin line on the down stroke and a wide line on the side stroke, which works well for both writing and block lettering.
The Three Kings pen box doubles as a display case. It has a slot on the upper layer for each of theThree Kings pens, and a layer below to store six more pens. A card signed by Mark Bacas , with the test writing sample for each nib is included and a bag of shavings of each pen.
