Featured Pen - Visconti Rembrandt - followup

I received the converter and replacement nib for the Visconti Rembrandt Ecorollerball that I purchased at the Miami Pen Show.

Forgive the quality, I took this with my P&S, which I have never used for video before and did not know if it had sound.  Had to set it up on a mini tripod so that we could see the converter in action.

So there you have it.  The Visconti Rembrandt Eco Rollerball pen, uses fountain pen ink and fills and flushes just like a fountain pen.

Oh, and as an aside, Happy Birthday to my better half, George.  He doesn't read my blog (he doesn't use a computer) so everyone all at once now, yell really loudly... "Happy Birthday, George!!"

Hey, I think he heard you.

Nice demonstration video! I wish more of these types of videos were out there for all sorts of pens so people can actually see it in action.

Happy Birthday George!!!

Nice to hear your voice, Julie! I detect the "Florida twang" in it. Ha-ha!

I think this Visconti is way cool. Rollerball inks are usually so dull but now a whole world of color is open to it. I assume you are still limited with the same restrictions as fountain pens with regard to paper?

LOL - it's probably more of a Georgia twang since that's where I grew up, modified by my year in Florida. I haven't put the rollerball to the test on different papers yet, I'll have to check that out for you.

That should have been YEARS in Florida

No, I don't hear any "southern belle" in there. Your voice is nice and mellow. My hubby heard the Minnesota in my voice when he met me but it too has faded from being in Arizona almost 30 years.
