This fountain pen was made to special order as a gift for my client as a birthday gift to his wife.
The design criteria was for an eye catching fountain pen using purple materials as this is her favourite colour.
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 a purple swirl pattern acrylic blank. The accent rings and banding are from cast metal which has then been plated with hard wearing black titanium.
The two-tone nib is made from 14ct Gold with engraved decoration made in Germany by Schmidt Technology (a world leading nib manufacturer),whilst the rhodium-plated clip includes a sparkling Swarovski clear crystal again adding to the opulent appearance of this writing instrument
The pen begins life as an acrylic 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 a burnishing compound is applied to the surface and buffed to the ultimate finish
Each pen is individually hand assembled taking care to ensure that every component fits correctly.
One of my favourite pens, its big brash and makes a statement!
