Delta Journal LE
|Color: 'Horn' (Cafe au lait swirl)
Date c. ca. 2012
|Nib: 14K Rhodium plated F
Suprisingly, I think I love this Delta even more than my DV! It’s a limited edition, and it’s just a delight. One of the smoothest fine nibs I have ever used, it’s just a dream pen. Don’t confuse this with the matte finish line released a couple years later. I think they used the same resin, but the matte version is a C/C fill with a steel nib. I checked recently to see if I could find other finishes, but these are now selling upwards of $500! I’m so happy I nabbed it when I spotted it a couple years back, for a LOT less than that!
Delta Dolce Vita
Date c. ca.
|Nib: 14K F
The pen that started my love of orange resin pens! I finally got my Dolce Vita! And just in time, for Delta closed its doors in 2017. They have since reopened, and one of their founders went on to launch the Leonardo brand (of which I am pleased to have a lovely example), but I am happy to have gotten this one from the ‘original’ Delta. Naturally, it’s a luscious pen, both to use and to hold.
