Product Name Frecce Tricolori ("Tricolor Arrows"). This pen was made in honor of the Italian Air Force's aerobatic demonstration team. It's based on Aurora's Ipsilon model.
Manufacturer and Year Aurora, Italy -- 2002
Filling System Proprietary cartridge/converter. A converter is installed, and a small box of 2 ink cartridges is included in the box.
Color Blue barrel and section, representing the blue sky, with chrome accents. The cap is mostly a matte chrome finish, with a shiny clip, blue finial and two blue stripes near the cap lip. There is also a disc on the clip, decorated with the logo of the Frecce Tricolori; appropriately, it's 3 arrow shapes in the colors of the Itlian flag.
Nib MEDIUM steel nib. Very smooth.
Condition Near Mint condition, in box. There are some small scratches at the very end of the barrel. Our inspection showed no signs that the pen has actually been inked. The trim is nearly pristine and there's really no handwear. The imprints are very crisp. No dents or dings or cracks. Gorgeous pen. Ships in a circular tin with some ink cartridges and a brochure affixed to the lid. The small lapel pin that was originally included is missing. The outer cardboard box is also included; it has some shop wear on the edges.
