The St Dupont Elysee is a beautiful full sized modern classic. Weighing in at over 50 grams capped, it has real gravitas, crafted from brass and finished in chinese black lacquer, it has a slip cap which glides neatly into place, housing a 14k gold medium nib which is smooth with a hint of the right kind of feedback. The pen takes international cartridges and ink converters, it comes boxed in an elegant case and is complete with warranty card and outer sleeve. It is a remarkably well balanced, understated modern classic
There are no major imperfections to note, no chips splits or engravings.
Very minor surface wear in the form of microscratching to the trim, and the lightest signs of handling, but otherwise a perfect example
The nib is a lovely smooth 14k gold medium nib, firm with no flex and only a hint of feedback,
Check out wonderful range of Organics Studio inks, a dark shade would suit this pen very well.
