Type Modern fountain pen
Product Name The model is Talisman, and this is the Venus Hair LE, made exclusively for Truphae.
Manufacturer and Year Benu, Armenia - circa 2022
Length 5-1/2" long
Filling System International cartridge converter. A piston converter is installed.
Color Venus Hair - coppery brown background, with gold flakes and metallic threads. Black section. Silver colored trim.
Nib FINE iridium point steel nib. Benu describes their nibs as "Schmidt nibs that are manufactured by JoWo and then hand-assembled at the Schmidt factory in Germany".
Condition Excellent condition. There is light handwear on the cap and barrel. No major scratches, or cracks, chips, dents, or dings. The clip has light polishing marks, and no brassing or plating wear. We suspect that the previous owner swapped out the section and nib from another (Benu) pen, as we generally see these with sections that match the cap and barrel material. This is a brightly colored, sparkly pen that is nicely textured. The imprints are clear.
Note: although this was supposed to be a numbered limited edition of 300 for Truphae, we found some discussion threads that Benu shipped the pens without the numbering. Truphae opted to sell them due to delays in production.
