Bring joy back to writing with a Borghini Metal Fountain Pen. Simple and modern, this lightweight fountain pen includes a two-toned gold and steel medium nib. Just beneath the nib, and on the cap, you’ll find beautiful gold accents to match its glossy finish. Etched around the rim of the cap is a mark of distinction; the Borghini name and logo. One standard blue ink cartridge is included.
Named after founder’s Giorgio Vaudano great-grandfather, the Borghini pen line began in the 1980’s as an expansion of the FAP company. Originally producing only pen clips, the introduction of the pen line collection gave the company a larger share of the market. It continues to use its factory in Piedmont for manufacturing and production.
Length with cap: 5.7”
Length without cap: 4.9”
Made in Italy

Looks and writes like a lot more expensive pen.The only thing is when you separate the nib cover and place it over the tip of the pen it doesn't stay there. It keeps falling off so you have to keep it separately while you write with it.
I haven't had a fountain pen since leaving school (yep, a very long time ago) so this is my first dip back into the market. I am now of an age where I wanted my signature on letters to be more distinguished, and wanted a bit of a flourish, which the pens out of the stationary cupboard at work just can't muster. This pen doesn't disappoint. It is a good weight (not to heavy and not too light) - which I was pleased about, as buying on-line without first picking it up is always a coin toss. It comes with 1 short cartridge, so you can use it straight out of the box :) I am not an aficionado, and daresay that many will discuss the benefits of a pen 10 times the price of this one; but for me this works - and looks - great.
Great craftsmanship at a great price. A medium nib that writes smooth.
The stainless steel nib is very smooth, better than those on some higher-price pens. The pen’s build-quality is high, although the narrow trim-ring at the base of the section is loose-fitting, and care needs to be taken not to lose it. Other than this small caveat the Borghini V40 is a lovely pen, comfortable to use and providing a fine writing experience. At it’s price it pretty much stands alone.
I just started using this pen (arrived two days ago) and really like the look of it and that it is lightweight. Black with gold trim is sharp. I am not even sure how long the little Kaweco ink cartridges will last yet but I started with 2 packages (12 cartridges) with blue/black and black ink. I may purchase another pen with a fine tip rather than medium as I typically use fine tip ink pens for sharper writing.
