I’m generally a big fan of what Delta has to offer. I own two Dolcevita Stantuffo fountain pens and was thoroughly impressed with the new Fusion 82, despite its fairy tale marketing material. But this new Dolcevita Fusion really just puts me off.
Exclusive to Fahrney’s Pens, the new Dolcevita Fusion fountain pen is a slightly modified Fusion 82. The big difference, besides the price, is the roller clip, cap band, and the orange celluloid barrel. These slight differences add up to a $260 premium over the Fusion 82, making the list price a mind-numbing $525!
The Dolcevita Fusion retains the resin cap, cartridge/converter filling system, and steel+gold Fusion nib. Fahrney’s is currently selling the new Dolcevita Fusion for $420 with your choice of XF, F, B, or Stub nib.
