The classic design & superb balance of this Rhodium & 22K Gold Black Cherry Burl Fountain Pen makes this pen a favorite among those who prefer larger, heftier desk pens.
Extraordinarily time consuming, not to just craft with expertise & precision, but to log and mill entirely myself, cherry burl is a domestic wood that is usually considered to be in the same class as mahogany for usage in the United States (source: Bell Forest Products). It is a wood for fine furniture & luxury items. The stiff & strong wood has complex interwoven grain with incredible blue streaks to birdseye-like speckles. Black cherry is also prized for being “photoreactive” —in other words—it darkens with exposure to light. This the reason cherry is known for its dark reddish hue with age.
This Rhodium model offers 22K Gold Accents on the center band & cap. The “fast action” thread found on the Gentleman’s fountain pen guarantees silky smooth operation & requires only 1 & 1/2 turns to attach or remove the pen cap.
In the tradition of fine desk pens, this particular style of my highly figured luxury wood pens is designed for use with the cap unattached (not posted)—ensuring that you will enjoy the effortless writing & superb balance of the Gentleman’s Fountain pen every time you use it. Just be sure to leave the pen cap in plain sight where others can see what they’re missing!
