Soffer Button Filler - Flexible Nib (SB 387)
Nib: Flexible 14 Kt Medium
This is an Italian Soffer button filler with spectacular celluloid, with an intense gold/brown woodgrain look. It's truly gorgeous - prettier than the photo can convey. The top of the cap is a replacement crafted by Joel Hamilton. The nib is a 14 Kt medium with lots of flex, but there's a "chip" (hard to find a better description) on the front of the Omega nib that does not affect function. As a name, Soffer is an amalgam of the two founders, SOFfietti and FERruccio, and the pens were made in Turin in the 30s through 50s. Oversize thickness. 5 3/8", 137 mm.
