Alpha, like the first letter of the Greek alphabet.
A generously sized pen, imposing, classic, and above all beautiful, produced in two versions: Alpha K and Alpha.
The central band displays the baroque elegance typical of southern Italy: that is, sumptuousness and beauty. It is made of vermeil (24Kt gold-plated sterling silver) in these versions, all of which have gold-plated finishes. On request, all pens are also available with rhodium-plated finishes.
The Alfa series is available in various magnificent materials and colours, all made in Italy:
Dark blue for cap and grip, and variegated blue for the barrel, like the Amalfi night sky (the photos show the Alpha K piston model, with semi-transparent orange inspection window). In the list at the bottom of the page, the Alpha Amalfi is identified with the colour Night Blue.
The colours of earth and ash, with hints of blue, to recall Herculaneum. The same variegated resin for the body and cap. In the K version, the inspection window is translucent orange. In the list at the bottom, the Alpha Herculaneum is called Brown
Pompeian red and bright green, marbled resin for body and cap. In the K version pictured, the ink inspection window is transparent. In the list, the Alpha Pompei is identified by the colour Red
Light grey, dark grey and black, with gold inclusions, make this ringed pearly resin. The photo shows the piston filled K-version, with transparent inspection window. In the price list at the bottom of the page, Alpha Gold-Grey is identified by the colour Grey
Blue, black and grey resin with gold inclusions; sparkling and precious. The Alpha K version has a blue semi-transparent inspection window. In the list at the bottom, the Alpha Gold-blue is identified by the colour Blue
Black and orange resin rings in different shades, with gold inclusions, on the body and cap. In the K version, the inspection window is translucent orange. In the list, the Gold-Orange Alpha is called Orange
When it's closed, the cap hids the ink window.
Linear clip, with rotating ball.
The Jowo nibs are decorated with the Maiora logo and offer an excellent writing experience.

The Alpha version feaures a triple filling system: cartridge, converter, or direct loading. Thanks to the hermetic closure that makes it safe, and using a syringe or dropper (not included), ink can be poured directly into the barrel of the pen, up to a capacity of 5.5 ml.
The Alpha K version, instead, feature the piston filling system (with ink window).
