This magnificent Fountain Pen will exceed even the most discriminating collector’s expectations. With superb balance, superior writing characteristics and an overall stylish, polished & elegant appearance it will be a treasured addition to anyone’s desk.
Inspiration for this design came from 1930/40’s movies. The design is big, bold & very eye-catching.
The body is made from rare Central American Cocobolo wood which is very dense. The accent rings and banding are from cast metal which has then been plated with hard wearing black titanium.
The nib is made from 14ct Gold with engraved decoration whilst the rhodium-plated clip includes a sparkling Swarovski clear crystal again adding to the opulent appearance of this writing instrument
The pen begins live as a Cocobolo blank which I hand-turn on my wood lathe. Once the correct dimensions are achieved the blanks are sanded up to 7 times with ever decreasing grades of abrasive until the surface is mirror smooth. Next several coats of polish are applied each being allowed to dry before sanding smooth. Finally, a coat of Carnuba wax is used to achieve the final gloss shine to enhance the regal appearance of the Cocobolo timber.
Each pen is individually hand assembled taking care to align the gain and that every component fits correctly.
One of my favourite pens, its big brash and makes a statement!
