Here I present an elegant Fountain pen, the body of which is hand turned by me from a piece of grapevine.
This grapevine was from the McLaren vineyards in South Australia. After a number of years, fields need to be replanted. These vines were rescued by a fellow Artisan when they were digging up the old vines to plant new. The fact that this pen is made from vines which have produced some excellent wines makes it unique. But there is also a hidden beauty in the vine that shows through in its colour and grain.
I have chosen to pair this material with shining Chrome plated trimmings.
This pen has been hand turned by me and fitted to the quality metal trimmings. It has been shaped for comfort and fit before finishing. After sanding it silky smooth, a hard durable finish is hand applied and polished to a smooth high gloss finish.
The nib is a steel, #5 iridium point, fine. It has a two tone plating for an elegant finish.
This fountain pen uses a cartridge/convertor system of filling. It uses standard international cartridges available in many office supply stores. It can also be fitted with a convertor to allow the use of bottled inks.
I have paid attention to the every detail during the production of this unique pen. Each component is hand checked for proper fit and finish before assembly. Once assembled, this beautiful writing implement is given a final hand polish and checked once again to ensure a flawless fit.
A gift box is included with the purchase of this item. Each fountain pen also includes one ink cartridge to get you started as well as a convertor.
