The Cartier Diabolo series of fountain pens echo the visual appeal of the art deco era in a luxuriously shaped design. It is clearly obvious that the Cartier company specializes in creating products that are widely admired for simply looking expensive. That is what you get with the Diabolo fountain pens. The strong lines running along the barrel of the pen sweep towards the cap where they converge to meet at a small blue cabochon jewel. The balance of the pen is very nice allowing the pen to sit very comfortably in the hand.
The nib of the pen is particularly smooth laying down a consistent wet line. The nib is 18K gold and is stiff with a reasonable spring to it. It is possible to get the nib in extra fine, fine, medium and broad.
The Diabolo fountain pen is available in the following color/design combinations: composite black with chevron cap, composite black with gold, composite black with platinum, platinum barley, ruby lacquer, blue lacquer, steel, burgundy with steel cap and a design called Happy Birthday.
Take a look at the range of available Cartier Diabolo fountain pens that are currently being offered for sale. It is a pen that is rather conservative in the color palette that is used but most of the Cartier fountain pens will be available with an impressive looking presentation box and this adds to the elegant appeal of the pen.

As far as the size of the Cartier Diabolo fountain pen goes, it is fairly middle of the range making it suited to the majority of people. The pen measures 5.5 inches capped, 6.125 inches posted and 5 inches unposted. The pen is probably balanced at its very best when using it uncapped. The Diabolo fountain pens that use metal caps can feel a little weighty towards the end of the pen when it is posted.
The filling method is by ink bottle or cartridge converter.
