Carefully crafted from solid brass, this fountain pen was designed to remind us of the weight and substance that our words can carry. Its simple, clean design is timelessly elegant and made to last a lifetime and be passed on to future generations. As you use it, it will develop a unique patina, telling the story of the hours and ideas you have shared with it.
This desk pen includes a solid brass stand with a matching black finish. The stand is compact—less than 2 inches wide (4.8 cm) at its base—but it weighs nearly 12 ounces, ensuring that it won't slide around on your desk when you remove or replace the pen. A plastic cap liner inside the stand helps ensure that the ink won't dry out in the nib while the pen is in the stand.
Inspired by the look of well-used vintage cameras, this "Brassing" pen is treated with a matte black lacquer finish that will wear off over time, exposing the solid brass body underneath. Once exposed, the raw brass will also darken and deepen over time. How this patina develops depends on how you use the pen—the more you write with it, the more unique your pen will become!
For those who want to take a more hands-on approach to customizing the look of their pen, it also comes with a sheet of sandpaper that you can use to intentionally remove some or all of black coating.
