The Waterford Pallas (pronounced “palace”) is crafted from a single piece of select hardwood veneer that is polished for a smooth, long-lasting surface. The platinum-plated metal accents, including the star-topped cap, the wedge-cut spring-loaded clip and the deep lines in the tip evoke the pen's Waterford heritage. The Pallas offers a texture, feel and beauty unique to the Waterford writing instrument family. The Waterford Pallas fountain pens feature cartridge/converter filling system and are enhanced with a two-toned, medium width, gold plated nib. The Waterford Pallas convertible pen is both a capless roller ball pen and a ballpoint pen. The Pallas ballpoint pen comes not only with the ball pen refill within the pen, but an additional capless roller ball refill also comes in the package for those who prefer writing with a roller ball. Each pen is delivered in a Waterford gift box.
