Our nib is made of a 18 kt solid gold and requires more than 16 manual steps before being tried at the last step, when touching the ink.
Starting from the small squared gold piece, which is laminated in several steps, to make its flexible tip yet solid but his body thin and elastic, and one micro bead of Iridium, smaller than a millimeter is welded on its tip.
The Iridium is a metal more precious than gold and so durable that will allow you to write the whole life. To complete the body of the nib we cut it in half with a spinning blade thinner than a human hair....
But do you know what is the most precious thing? It is the hand of skilled craftsman, who passionately and fully manually try the tip of the nib smoothing with wisdom and experience its tip into countless positions of his hand with one ambition: to make you write with pleasure. This is our work, our passion and this way we thank you for choosing our own creation.
A Santini gold nib goes through many manual production steps, and each nib can be compared to a jewel, fare from industrial production of steel nibs.
We don't produce steel nibs to offer you our uncompromising writing experience.
