Parrish penworks handcrafts custom fountain pens in the united states. I personally shape and polish every pen, one at a time, in my small shop in northern virginia. Because each pen is crafted from custom small-batch materials, and the pens are hand shaped and carefully polished by hand, each is a unique work of art, and no two pens will ever be alike. The process creates a quality one-of-a-kind writing instrument to be enjoyed for years to come.
My hope is that you will enjoy this product as much as i enjoyed making it. This pen was handmade from diamondcast alumilite resin and polished to a high luster. The depth of color and sparkle simply cannot be captured in photos. Please see the attached video for the best representation.
The pen has a slightly tapered profile with a slight step at the transition from cap to the body and is fitted with a slightly pinched section and jowo #6 nib. Diamondcast is a patent-pending material made with alumilite and a combination of real diamond and various pigments.
The material is custom mixed and hand-poured by a small family-owned us business. Alumilite is specially formulated and, unlike some other resins/acrylics that are fragile and prone to shattering, produces a more durable final product. This pen is made to accept a jowo fountain pen nib.
Cap: m13 triple start threads. Postable: yes; however, it only posts on a small portion of the barrel and may scratch/dull the finish where posted.
Dimensions: all measurements in millimeters and are provided as a general guide only. Because every pen is made by hand there are often variations in size and shape. No two pens are ever alike. Section: 11.5 mm pinched. Schmidt k5 converter or comparable.
Note: this pen pictured is the actual pen you will receive. Due to variations in monitors, the actual colors may vary from what you see. The vibrance and depth of the materials are hard to capture in any photograph and must be seen in person to be truly appreciated. This item is made of diamondcast and alumilite, resin, acrylic.
