Scribo created their first fountain pen to tell what it means for us to feel, to try, to experience writing by hand. They created the Feel as you see it to express the whole Scribo philosophy inside a writing instrument. Scribo designed it this way to tell who we are, our story and what we think a fountain pen should do: to invite the hand to write well. Scribo Feel is not only our first fountain pen, it is our column on which to build a future to be written on. As in the best tradition of hand writing instruments, every stylistic detail of the Scribo Feel has been conceived, designed and manufactured to create a unique fountain pen that stands out in the search for the best writing experience.
The body of the pen, which slips into the shape of the Doric column, is turned by hand from a solid bar. The cap, the barrel and the knob, characterised by a slight entasis (from the greek word εντείνω) that enhances the shape, describe a statuesque object with a neo-classical, elegant and timeless design. Even the nib-holder, before tapering to the classic circular section, is finished with a hint of facet that facilitates the handle and allows you to better manage the angle which you want to use the nib with. Feel is an invitation to live a unique writing experience of the highest quality; it is an exhortation to seek everyone’s own writing style, it is a tribute to the aesthetics of handwriting and the pleasure of writing.
The Scribo Feel collection is made in two different colours: the blue-black resin with rhodium trim and the Scribo grey-blue with ruthenium trim. The Scribo Feel is accompanied by a genuine leather and cotton handmade soft pouch realized to protect two writing instruments. In the side pocket there is a cloth to keep your fountain pens clean. A precious and modern packaging to always carry with you your favourite writing instruments.
The Scirbo Feel fountain pen has an 18kt gold or a 14kt gold flex nib. A unique nib, the same nib used by Omas and that is for Scribo the first brick to start again a brand-new story of Italian creativity with. The perfect match for Scribo’s historic nib is undoubtedly the ebonite feeder, which enhances the always ready, generous, soft and precise writing, thanks to the use of the classic piston filling system which holds up to 1.42ml of ink.
Scribo is a young Italian brand with a long history behind. The Scribo project started on the same day the glorious history of Omas, a historic Bolognese company that has become a cult in the world of fountain pens’ collectors, ended. With Scribo, acronym for Scrittura Bolognese, the brand ideally take the baton so that handwriting, as an ancient art retrieval story, can be pursued.
