I have added aluminium accent rings and a chrome clip to enhance the beauty. Each piece is is buffed to high finish, accentuating the deep swirl pattern within the material.With very few metal pieces, you will be surprised at the light weight, allowing for hours of pleasant writing. The cap can be posted on the end of the barrel with a gentle push.
It is a friction hold. The nib is a steel, #6 jowo nib. It has been fitted with a fine polished nib for the photographs. However you can choose either a polished or two-tone steel nib in either ef, f, m, b, 1.1 italic or 1.5 italic.
18k gold nibs in an ef, f, m, b are available. This fountain pen uses a cartridge/convertor system of filling.
It will take standard international cartridges available in many office supply stores. It can also be fitted with a convertor to allow the use of bottled inks. Each fountain pen also includes one ink cartridge to get you started as well as a schmidt k5 convertor. A few things to note. Each of my pens are individually hand crafted in my studio.
The pictures you see are of the actual pen you will receive. This item is made of ink and chrome, iridium tipped, aluminum, resin, polished, two tone.
