This is my favorite fountain pen. It's a beaufort mistral. They are made to the most exacting standards and tolerances, featuring premium quality platings and come with the very best of fountain pen nibs and german made mechanisms. I can't say enough good stuff about the makers of the components for this pen.This particular pen i finished with a lovely white marble which flows beautifully with the rhodium and brushed gold components. It comes with a beaufort ink two-tone premium nib, an ink cartridge, and a beaufort ink premium ink converter (for using with bottle ink). The cap does not post, but who cares this is a beautiful instrument. This item is made of brushed gold and rhodium, white marble.
