Gioia Alleria Mare Chiaro
The Alleria Mare Chiaro is a handmade fountain pen turned from precious resin. The Mare Chiaro has two versions, the Mark I and the Mark II, this is the latest version of the 'Clear Sea' from Gioia Pens, in a gorgeous deep blue finish inspired by the clear quiet sea of a cool summer's day. The deep swirling blues are accented by Rhodium Trim.
The pen is a full sized modern classic, measuring in at 142mm capped. Its cap and barrel have been turned from Italian precious resin. The barrel threads are unique: being at the foot of the grip section, they facilitate a tight seal and a graceful capping experience.
The well sprung rhodium plated clip is made using an ancient goldsmith’s process called “lost wax casting”. The cap and the barrel together have five trim rings that confer a neo-classic look. The result: a fountain pen with a modern silhouette and a strikingly attractive colour combination that smacks of Italian craftsmanship. With a smooth piston filling mechanism, huge ink capacity and a range of nib options, Gioia pens are here to stay.
The iridium-tipped #6 JoWo steel nib is available in six different sizes:
Extra Fine, Fine, Medium, Broad, 1.1 Stub and 1.5 Stub
We have a small batch of Architect grinds available, these are the standard Gioia Broad nibs which have been professionally ground to an Architect, also known as Hebrew or Arabic grind. They are an additional £45
