This fountain pen is made of select Carbon Fiber with black titanium pen components. It is very rare. This style of pen - a Zen Fountain Pen is very uncommon. Do a search for "zen fountain pen" . At the time of this writing, I couldn't find another one for sale...anywhere. There were a few sites where a pen maker had made one for themselves and was showing the world he had one. You will find many zen rollerball pens....not zen fountain pens though.
The pen barrel was fitted inside a carbon fiber shelve and secured. There are no seams this way. The barrel was placed in a mold and crystal clear gem resin was poured over the carbon fiber and cured. Once cured, the “blanks” were placed on my lathe and shaped to exact dimensions for a perfect balance. To do this the blanks spin at a very fast rpms and I use tools to lightly touch the surface. This shaves off fractions of the clear coat. By hand I move the tools back and forth to shape the pen. It takes precision, skill, and the right tools to do the job right. Once the pen is perfectly shaped, I lightly sand the pen to even out the surface. This is done on the lathe as well as the next step(s) which is wet polishing. I use special micro fiber polishers, which is an art in itself. Polishing requires skill in how much pressure to apply, how long to polish, and the movement used to polish.
A great polish to any handcrafted pen adds so much to the appeal of the end product. After I wet polish, I generally will stop and give my dog Mocha a treat because he patiently watches me during this whole process. : ) I don’t stop there. I will liquid polish after that. I have started using a De Beers liquid diamond polish that really puts a sparkling gleam on the surface. It is a polish method that is used to polish gemstones. It takes the polishing roughly 10 times smoother than the “average” pen polishing method.
Next by hand I use a pen press to assemble the pen components. The pen components have a highly polished black titanium coating that has a very distinctive look.
It features a fountain pen nib that is iridium tipped for extreme quality writing. The cap easily screws on the front or the end of the pen (postable).
With this pen comes with a black pen case. You will also get an ink converter to use if you want to use bottled fountain pen ink. I will include a regular fountain pen ink cartridge to get you up and going fast. I'll enclose your pen in a black velvet pen bag, bubble-wrap it and carefully ship your new pen via FEDEX (if in the USA).
Ink cartridge refills are very easy to find at office supply stores. It is an "universal" refill type. You will also get an authenticity certifcate card that is signed by me.
I hope you become one of my customers! I try to have excellent customer service. If you get a chance...check out my feedback here on etsy....not too shabby! : )
