A premium fountain pen that has been hand turned using a beautiful piece of Spalted Walnut. It is finished with a hard wearing mirror finish that really brings out the beauty of the spalted effect and at the same time offering a good level of protection. It is adorned in the finest premium quality 22 carat gold platings with black titanium accents on the centre band and cap end.
The pen is fitted with a two tone German made high quality fountain pen nib as standard together with a premium quality ink converter.
The Fountain Pen is supplied with a pack of 6 x premium fountain pen ink cartridges made in the UK. The ink has been formulated to flow easily from the nib giving great depth of colour and exhibiting excellent shading. It is shipped in a stylish and luxurious leatherette pen box. It has rigid construction with spring hinge closure, a stitched, textured glossy leatherette exterior with Cream velvet padded interior.
(Please note. Bottled ink is not supplied but can be purchased from the CraftyNick website separately).
Fountain pens are Non-postable. (Non-postable means that the cap cannot attach, and will need to be set aside or held while writing.). In tradition fine pens are designed for the cap to be left off to be admired, and to be balanced for writing without the cap on the pen.
What Is Spalted Wood?
Spalted wood is any wood that has begun to decay or rot as a result of a specific range of airborne fungus. It is created when white rot fungus begins growing within a piece of wood or log. When the fungus begins to grow withing the wood, the process is referred to as “spalting.”
There is nothing worse for a well-made pen than a refill that doesn’t work because it’s dried up or corroded, or the ink flow skips, or it feels scratchy on the paper.
The pen kits I use in my hand turned pens are of the highest quality using premium pen kits from a select few special suppliers and mainly designed in the UK. They have been engineered and manufactured to the highest standards and tolerances to take their place amongst the best available worldwide.
