|Delta's new Israel 60 Special Limited Edition series celebrates the 60th anniversary of Israel declaring independence in 1948. This new Delta pen is a step up from the popular Delta 50 series. This Delta fountain pen features a clip made of solid sterling silver .925 and reproduces the Yad. A Yad, literally "hand" is a Jewish ritual pointer, used to point to the text during a Torah reading. This attribute is designed to allow people to point out information while not touching the parchment, which is considered sacred. The two spheres in the celebration clip display numerous small diamonds. The Delta Israel 60 fountain pen also has an 18-karat gold nib which is specially designed, customized, and personalized. This fountain pen uses a threaded converter or ink cartridge filling system.
