nib & cap

I am easily seduced by a beautiful nib or cap. What made me buy the Marlen Vienna was not the nib – even if it turned out to be much more handsome than I had expected from the photos – it was the cap. Ornamented, pseudo antique silver. I love it. It might seem far from my usual fare, but one needs variety variety variety sometimes. It also happen to be a very pleasant writer – a wettish fine that has been put to quite a lot of use during the few days that I have had the pleasure to own it. A very nice bargain.
