The Dutch Pen Show takes place during the first weekend of June. By now it has become a tradition that Leonardo Officina Italiana creates a special limited edition pen to celebrate the show. Visitors of the 2022 edition voted for a ‘green’ theme, so this year’s theme for the pen show is ‘Tulip Fields’.
For the 2023 edition, resin wizard Jonathon Brooks of the Carolina Pen Company was asked once more to create a custom resin. His interpretation of ‘yellow tulips in a field of green, with a few overhead clouds and a bit of shine’ came out spectacularly! The pen blanks were then sent to Leonardo, where they were turned into beautiful pens. For the first time this year, the pen will be available with 3 different trims: gold, silver and ruthenium.
The matching 14kt nib is imprinted with the Dutch Pen Show logo.
Only 100 of these pens will be made, each pen with its own unique number.
The pens will be shipped in a sleeved box with a complementary bottle of ink.
And the story goes on… A family tradition. Leonardo Officina Italiana is a forge, a laboratory where experience and craftsmanship are mixed giving life to “pleasure”, the pleasure of writing. Over 45 years of experience in the field of writing instruments, handed down from father to son, from generation to generation. Today Leonardo Officina Italiana works on emotional and vintage projects, taking up the old loading systems, the materials and the working techniques that once characterized the craft of the craftsman. The Leonardo pens have a soul, a human warmth that only passion can give. The fountain pen carved into the material is certainly this detail that differentiates us on the world market. Each Leonardo collection is hand made in Italy.
