<< Back to Robb Report, September 2013

    The Visconti Pininfarina Carbongrafite pen (www.visconti.it) is the product of a two-year collaboration between the Italian pen maker and the design firm that has created bodywork for Ferrari, Maserati, and other Italian automobile marques. The pen’s carbon-composite barrel displays the graceful lines of a fine sports car. Production is limited to 930 fountain pens ($1,895 each) and 930 roller balls ($1,695 each).
