Description (from the Grand Vision Pens website):
"Gioia Pens are Neapolitan producers of luxury hand-turned fountain pens. The Partenope is a marvel of Italian design and execution. The 18k gold plated cap is adorned with a view of the Gulf of Naples, and the clip is crafted from the ancient goldsmith process of lost wax casting.
The Fiamma or “Flame” model was inspired by the Lampadedromìa Neapolitana (“Torch Relay Half Marathon of Naples”), the oldest sporting event in the shadow of Mount Vesuvius (5th BC). It features a Red/Yellow/Black marbled resin body and cap, a knob and grip section in black, and a yellow gold trim, clip and finial.
The Paternope's genius is the fact it provides two pens - a fountain pen and a rollerball - in one. Simply unscrew the grip section and the nib can be changed for a rollerball.
The filling system is a threaded Gioia pens luxury ink converter, which can be filled via the blind cap at the rear of the barrel, or unscrewed from the section for ease of cleaning.
The ballpoint pen is every bit as elegant and well proportioned as the fountain pen. It features a stainless steel sleeve which keeps the refill neatly contained when not in use. A wonderful piece of Neapolitan ingenuity."

Choice of ink:
By default, the pen will be empty and clean. But I do have a wide range of inks which are all listed on my profile. If you fancy trying something, let me know and I'll either fill the pen or send a sample (depending on ease of packaging etc)
