DIPLOMAT Excellence A Glossy black lacquered fountain pen with guilloch chrome cap and medium stainless steel nib. The cap is a stand out feature of this pen with it's beautiful Guilloch (or Guilloche) engraving. Guilloch is a decorative engraving technique where intricate patterns and designs are engraved with great precision.
The Excellence A series from DIPLOMAT is well named. Excellence is a word that readily comes to mind when you hold one in your hand. They are a fairly heavy (41g) well balanced pen that feels solid and substantial in your hand. DIPLOMAT Excellence fountain pens are hand crafted in Germany and individually checked before leaving the factory, ensuring that every one will write perfectly straight out of the box.
They all have a full brass and steel body in a range of colours and finsihes including rich, glossy, multi-layered lacquer, matt and polished chrome, lapis with a choice of matt or gloss chrome and gold trim.
The DIPLOMAT Excellence series are available with a polished stainless steel nib in Fine, Medium and Broad and an optional 14K gold nib available in Medium and Broad only. All nibs are premanently attached to the section and comlpete nib assemblies are available making changing the nib a simple matter of unscrewing the nib assembly and screwing the new one in.
Removing feeders and swapping nibs can be problematic for a lot of people and these complete nib assemblies allow everyone to easily change nibs.
DIPLOMAT have opted for a snap on cap for this series and the caps snap on with a very positive click, and fit and seal very well. Like every other part of the pen, the cap mechanism is very well engineered to precise tolerances.
The stainless steel and gold nibs both write very smoothly and easily and these pens would be perfect as a First Fountain Pen.
The DIPLOMAT Excellence series comes in a range of matching ballpoint pens, rollerball pens and mechanical pencils.
