Visconti Rembrandt Ballpoint
Great Writing Instrument, Dissapointing Quality
As an attorney, I do a lot of writing. I have always had a passion for quality pens, so I ordered the Visconti Rembrandt balpoint several months ago in the blue resin. It is a beautiful writing instrument, and I like the fact that it came with the Visconti gel refill. The refills are compatible with Parker ballpoint and gel refills, but I ordered some Levenger easy flow ballpoint refills in blue which worked great. However, I noticed today that the silver cap on the top of the pen that has the Visconti insignia is missing. Apparently, it was cheaply glued on. I just noticed this, so this is something that could have happened weeks ago since I only use the pen occasionally. This is a problem experienced by another reviewer who purchased the rollerball version of this pen. I agree that it detracts from the appearance of the pen and may be a widespread problem that Visconti needs to address. For the price paid for this pen I expect better craftsmanship. I am back to using my trusty Cross Townsend rollerball full time as it has proven its durability, and will probably give the Visconti away to somebody who isn't as particular as I am about the missing cap.

What a find!
As a pen lover and collector I am delighted with the style and performance of my newest addition .... Visconti. I bought it as a gift for a family member but ended up adding it to my own collection. Warning: may be addictive. Do not think you can resist this perfectly balanced, beautifully appointed instrument.

Eloquently Designed Pen
Eloquently crafted of smooth resin with a slim design. Like writing on a cloud...ultra light and smooth ink flow. Variated color shading gives it a unique look. Antique feel boasts from the engraved silver trim and signature appointment.
