You've often heard of designer clothes, but this is not why you are here. Instead, you're looking at a designer pen whose hardware is designed by the accomplished pen designer David Broadwell. It features custom casted 3-D Art Deco design components, premium plating, and a Swarovski Crystal.
Beautifully crafted from Chechen – tree native to Caribbean and some Central American countries. The wood colour is varied with red/brown contrasted by darker stripes. On account of density, luster, and coloration, Chechen is sometimes referred to as Caribbean Rosewood; however Chechen is not a true rosewood and is not classified in the Dalbergia genus.
The pen's wood body has a barrel shape and is finished with Pure Tung Oil and Carnauba-based Wax. The Tung Oil penetrates the wood to emphasize the grain and colour. The oil does not contain artificial thinners or cure-accelerants and is approved for food-contact items. The Carnauba-based wax forms a light 'skin' finish which serves as an additional layer of protection. The combination of the two finishes emphasize the beauty of the wood while preserving its natural feel.
Both the rollerball and fountain pen hardware components are cast, polished and plated with a durable two micron 22k gold plate and rhodium. The threads at the back of the pen allow you to attach the cap giving you extra length and balance.
The rollerball pen comes with a fine-tipped (0.6mm) ceramic roller refill from Schmidt. The rollerball tip ensures smooth and even lines to your hand-writing.
The fountain pen comes with an Iridium Point medium nib manufactured in Germany and takes an ink well or a prefilled cartridge. The pen is uninked and will ship with the ink well attachment only. The prefilled cartridges are susceptible to damage in cold temperatures and therefore are not shipped to protect your purchase.
To access the refill or the ink, simply unscrew the tip from the middle. In case of the rollerball pen, make sure you don't lose the spring that goes at the end of the refill.
Customization for this pen is available. Customization comes in the form of an inscription of up to 5 words that will be burnt onto the wood in one or two lines matching, as closely as possible, the font you provide. To have your pen customized, simply select 'Customize Cap' or 'Customize Body' in the customization option and upload an image with your text.
