We’re thrilled to introduce the new limited edition Visconti Opera Master Luna, our newest Goulet exclusive collaboration with Visconti.
This gorgeous fountain pen is made with a brilliant “Goulet blue” resin infused with silver glittery particles. It’s also translucent, so you can see your ink level through the barrel as well. It also has a small clear ink window, and is complemented by rhodium trim.
The Opera Master is an oversized pen that features the Double Reservoir Power Filler. A little history on this filling mechanism…. in 1998, Visconti applied for the Italian patent for its Double Reservoir Power Filler, which is a unique filling system that allows a massive ink capacity and safe usage during air flights. Similar in operation to vacuum-filling pens (such as the larger Visconti Homo Sapiens), the Opera Master fills with a 3.4ml ink capacity in the sealed ink reservoir. Unique to this design, there is a second reservoir in between the vacuum seal and the pen’s feed that holds about .6ml, the size of a typical standard international short cartridge. Effectively, what you end up with here is the ink equivalent of a standard international cartridge that you can use to write (without having to unscrew the filler knob like you do with most other vacuum-fillers), with the contents of an entire pack of cartridges (or the entire Visconti Traveling Inkwell!) in the back of your pen.
The Opera Master uses the large 23kt palladium nib, available in sizes extra-fine, fine, medium, broad, or 1.3mm stub italic.
It comes packaged with a special glass bottle of Visconti Blue ink, in a beautiful leather gift box.
Only 188 individually numbered pieces were made, and we’ll do our best to honor any specific requests for numbers.
The Luna is available exclusively through Goulet Pens for $795 (original MSRP $995).
