About the Visconti Rembrandt

The Visconti Rembrandt fountain pen is made from a beautiful variegated resin. The cap comes with the trademark Visconti bridge shaped clip to symbolize friendship and diplomacy. The cap on the pen has a magnetic closure to keep it in place.

Each pen has a stainless steel and comes with a cartridge/converter fill system so you can use bottle fountain pen ink as well as standard universal ink cartridges.

Writes well, looks nice. I have more expensive Visconti pens, but as an intro to the brand, I’d recommend the Rembrandt line.

I bought this just because the price was ridiculous and I just could not pass on it. Second I have wanted to try a Visconti and was always hesitant about the price since folks keep complaining about the nibs in blogs. I did not have an issue with this one. I was planning on having it as a keepsake and now it has joined the ranks of my always inked pens. I do enjoy the magnetic top. I use it posted and its not heavy. I have it in a broad nib and its pretty smooth writing. No scratching at all. I have always been a Pilot chick. I love that their nibs the most but the prices on pen chalet have been so amazing I have branched out and I am grateful as I now have new brands in my collection that I love and Visconti is one of them.

I really like the magnetic cap, holds really secure for me. The steel nib is good, not great. Needed to tweak it slightly to get it performing well out of the box. I was expecting the swirl pattern to be a lot more dramatic, but its still an attractive pen.

I recently purchased this pen with the fine nib. I flushed it out. It wrote perfectly upon touching the paper. I am running Noodler's x-feather in it. No issues at all on cheap USA made work paper. I appreciate the discount and free shipping. Nice service and pen. Regards.

I was very excited to purchase the Visconti Rembrandt. Visconti is an elite fountain pen manufacturer so when I saw I could get this pen for $165 I made the investment. I know in the pen universe that's not a lot of money especially when you are buying a Visconti, but to me it's a lot. Anyway I bought the pen from The Pen Chalet and they did a superb job handling my order. Why I inked the pen it wrote beautifully, but after a half a page to a page it ran dry. I must say I'm disappointed in this pen. I love the clip, I love the magnetic closer, but my writing experience was not so great. The Pen Chalet did a great job and I will and have purchased more pens in the future.

If you’re looking for a beautiful piece of artwork in the shape of a pen, then this “writing instrument” is for you! If you’re looking for something that actually writes on paper, steer clear. This device is absolutely NOT a writing instrument (hence the use of quotes above).

I really want to love Visconti’s products. They are creative, beautiful, and well made, with the exception of the polishing job on the nib. The problem with Visconti is that they do not make pens that write. I can say this with confidence because I now have three Visconti “pens” (a Rembrandt and two Van Goghs) and they all have the exact same problem. EVERY Visconti pen is delivered to you with a severe case of baby’s bottom. If you don’t believe me, see some of sbrebrown’s videos where he also complains about Visconti for the same reason. I had seen the videos, I had read other reviews, but I wanted so much to disbelieve them and thought that perhaps I’d get lucky and receive a functioning Visconti pen. I wanted a working Visconti so much that after my first one arrived with baby’s bottom I bought a second, which came the same way, and then a third. Now I am 3 for 3 with pens from Visconti that don’t work. I even tried ordering them from different vendors hoping for different results to no avail.

Just for background, I know how fountain pens are supposed to work. I have more than 50 of them, and so far the trend (although not a rule, thanks mostly to Pilot) is that the more expensive the “pen”, the worse it writes. If you are looking for a true writing instrument, get something that costs between $2 and $40. All of my Jinhao pens cost <$10 and every single one of them writes better than any of the three Visconti “pens” I have. Other good brands I’ve got multiples of that write well include: Hero, Baoer, Platinum, Monteverde, Conklin, Lamy, TWSBI, Noodler’s, and most of all Pilot. Pilot (I have at least 20 Pilot pens) is by far the most consistent nib maker. EVERY SINGLE ONE of my Pilot pens has written flawlessly from the day I got it, so if you really want a good writing fountain pen that you don’t have to mess with at all, just get a Pilot and you won’t be disappointed.

So why is it that I can buy 20+ pens from Pilot that all write superbly, yet spend almost $600 on pens from Visconti and not get a single one that actually writes on paper? I don’t know. I would like to hear an explanation from Visconti as to why they think it’s ok to send out beautiful, well made things sold as “pens” that have nibs so over polished that they can’t even put ink on paper! This is inexcusable as far as I’m concerned. Perhaps it’s just an Italian thing, similar to how Ferrari’s and Lamborghinis are beautiful cars but also notorious for being horribly unreliable—don’t’ use them as daily commuters or you’ll end up missing quite a few days of work. Yet go buy a Nissan GT-R NISMO and you can drive it to work every day and then take it to the track on the weekend. Look to the Italians for form, but NOT functionality!

So there you have it:
Visconti = Ferrari or Lamborghini (good for a nice view in the pen case or garage, but not designed to actually do what its main function is purported to be)
Pilot = Nissan GT-R (not quite as pretty, but outperforms the competition in both performance and reliability)

Bottom line: if you want a pen that writes, PLEASE do not buy a Visconti! And whatever you do, don’t make the same mistake I did and think “well, this person just got a dud, I’m sure all Viscontis can’t be that bad” because I had the very same thought THREE TIMES IN A ROW and now have three pen shaped pieces of art that don’t do anything but sit there looking pretty in my pen case.

The purple Rembrandt is a beautiful pen. It's round and a little lighter than its Dali and Michelangelo cousins. But it writes like a dream. The nib is ever so slightly stiffer than the nibs in the others but I find that makes it more practical for daily office use.

Visconti Rembrandt Video



Video Script

This is the Visconti Rembrandt fountain pen. The pen comes in a black leather case, has curved sides to it, the Visconti logo is embossed on the center of the top of the box lid. Clam shell style box with a hinge lid, lifts open for display. It has the Visconti logo here on the underside of the lid, soft velvet material on the interior.

Included with the pen is a Visconti ink converter. This is a cartridge converter style fountain pen, and this is the red version of the Visconti Rembrandt fountain pen. Chrome colored accents throughout the pen, small chrome medallion there, or knob there, at the end of the barrel. Large chrome band there in the center, with Rembrandt engraved on it and some other decorative patterns.

Traditional Visconti arch shaped clip with the Visconti logo here, on the top. The clip opens nice, wide and easily. Magnetic style cap snaps off and can be posted on the pen. Chrome colored grip section with the Visconti logo, their designs there on the nib and the feed there on the back side.

Since this is a cartridge converter pen you unscrew the section there to change the ink, and included with this pen is one standard universal ink cartridge to get you started. You can also use bottled ink with that converter that was included as well.

Beautiful pen. Visconti is a great brand. Get your Visconti Rembrandt fountain pen at PenChalet.com!
