BLACK PEN SOCIETY EXCLUSIVE RELEASE
The Black Pen Society-- counting amongst its membership Pendom's leading lights-- dedicates itself to acknowledging the merit of fountain pens done in basic black and to increasing both awareness and collecting of this understated critter in a world that more and more worships garish color. Subtlety has charm.
When one is approached by Paul Erano and asked to provide an exclusive for the Black Pen Society, one merely nods, thanks their lucky stars, and obeys. We were lucky enough to begin work on this collaboration early this year, but our production timeline for a 2019 release would be difficult based on our already full schedule. As the year progressed we sat down to make the necessary adjustments to our Decograph pen that Paul selected for the exclusive release. In the process of this latest production release we've taken the time to make some small improvements to the Decograph in terms of functionality. We've moved completely to a one piece, milled aluminum clip. The one-piece clip is machined at a slight angle that ensure the clip remains in contact with the cap allowing for positive clipping to even the thinnest material. The upper finial threads have been lengthened to ensure they will not strip under pressure, and the upper finial o-ring has been standardized to ensure the finial will not come unscrewed and keep the cap air-tight. For the Black Pen Society we've fashioned a flattened upper finial, a more traditional design reminiscent of the classic flat top pens of the early 20th century. We've engraved the Black Pen Society logo on top of the finials per Paul's directions. The pens are machined out of U.S. manufactured acrylic and aluminum, machined in house. The nibs are Bock nibs made in Germany, converters are Schmidt manufactured also in Germany. We provide standard international ink cartridges from Monteverde who use ink made in Austria. Available with any of our Bock nib offerings, it looks particularly stunning with a 14k Gold nib. The Black Pen Society Decograph will ship in our indestructible Decograph pen capsule with corresponding instructions.
Black Pen Society Decograph is a Special Edition collaboration between Paul Erano (Grand Poobah, Black Pen Society00 and Karas Pen Co.
The #6 nibs units are manufactured by Peter Bock in Germany. Also included with each pen is a Schmidt K5 cartridge converter and 5 black Monteverde ink cartridges. This edition is designed, machined, and assembled in the USA from US and imported material.
