Striking in its simplicity, each Loclen Evolution fountain pen is made just outside of Venice, Italy, from a rod of C360 brass. The clipless design is perfectly cylindrical, with clean lines, a textured grip section, and only a few grooves for decoration. If you prefer to write posted, unscrew the cap, unscrew the end cap, remove the small ring that covers the threads on the back of the barrel, and screw down the cap to post securely. Then, slip the ring over the nib and screw it down on the front end of the pen for safekeeping. Complete with a German-made Bock stainless steel nib, the Evolution accepts standard cartridges and bottled inks using the included Schmidt converter.
The pen boasts a C360 brass body and a Bock stainless steel mod. 060 nib. It measures 4.72 inches capped, and 6.3 inches posted, and weighs and impressive 36 grams.
