Arete (ahr-i-tey) is a term meaning “virtue” or “excellence,” which is the perfect name for this fountain pen to use, or gift to someone special. The pen's simplistic design features smooth sophisticated lines, postable cap, gem accented clip, and high quality durable chrome plating. The Arete fountain pen kit is equipped with a high quality nib, which writes smoothly and evenly.
The barrel of this fine pen is made with Quilted Maple, containing blue and reddish streaks in a shimmering, chatoyant wood grain. As the name of the wood depicts, it looks "quilted", giving a 3D appearance.
