This is a hand turned jr emperor style fountain pen. The jr emperor is the perfect size pen for everyday use.
The very striking details at the waist and finial provide a classic elegant look. The body is genuine 1970 dodge proto fordite (detroit agate) breitling watch parts body on a rhodium and 22kt gold jr emperor fountain pen. This pen is a true work of art.The fordite is turned to a very slim size and then the black and gold breitling dial is installed on top of the fordite. It is then cast in clear resin and then turned a 2nd time. Then they are polished to 12000 grit then buffed to crystal clear finish. The finish is like glass and this pen is an heirloom piece. This is a fountain pen with a high quality nib it is a non-posting pen, meaning the top, once removed, cannot be screwed on to the opposite end of the lower body. The hardware has a rhodium and 22kt gold finish, a significant upgrade finish with a striking appearance and long wear life. It features the same durable plating and unique and intricate hand carved patterns that have been richly coated in 22k gold.
All of the castings are done by hand at the factory, with a lot of care and attention to detail. Each component is checked by hand to ensure a proper fit and finish and then the pen is once more hand polished to ensure perfection.
Includes a velvet to protect it. I can also custom make any type of pen you can imagine, with a quick turnaround and value rates.
I make all of my products by hand in my shop in seattle. Each item is made one at a time with both care and precision to offer you something that is truly one of a kind. I do not cut corners or take shortcuts to save time and produce items quickly. I take as much time is needed to do the job right.
That often means slowing down and taking the extra time to look at an item and make sure that the shape, smoothness and finish is just right. I love to see the beauty in wood come alive as it's turned to shape. I love the patterns and designs and natural beauty that come out in the resins that are cast to make acrylic pens. I stand behind my products. For pens, i choose components (the metal parts) that will hold up to the test of time.
It may be helpful for you do know that extreme changes in temperature and humidity will have an effect on the resin or wood used to create this product. It's best to avoid such extremes, such as leaving your item in a hot car for an extended period of time. Please feel free to contact me about special requests. I can help you find a wonderful gift for just about any occasion.
