Ink Challenge 2017-011: Pen Day 02.
This week I like to show you a pen I bought last year. It is one of the old Danitrio models, where it says Dani on the cap band and Trio on the convertor.
It is the Phantas I. This model is unlike the modern models, since it has a metal barrel and cap, adorned with what looks like pewter snakes. There is one 🐍 around the cap, and one round the barrel. Unfortunately they are not aligned in such a way that they face each other when the cap is closed. The eyes are red gemstone shaped plastic (I guess).
The nib is an old steel Schmidt with Iridium point in Medium. It does write fairly wet and it writes very smooth. It doesn't have a lot of flex, and when it was set aside for an hour (even when capped) the nib seems to dry out a bit. The flow comes back fast, but it is something to keep in mind.
I really like the design a lot, and therefore I will not part from it.
Ink used is the new Akkerman Israel's Zeeblauw.
