NOTEBOOK NOT INCLUDED
Legend has it that Phaethon, son of Helios, sought proof that he was indeed the sun god’s progeny. Helios relented to Phaethon’s request and allowed him to pilot the sun chariot across the sky. Phaethon was unable to control the horses that pulled the chariot, and seeing the chariot veer off course in danger of setting the earth on fire; Zeus struck down Phaethon with a lightning bolt. Phaethon’s lifeless body fell to earth, landing along the banks of the River Eridanos. Phaethon’s sisters, the Heliades, gathered around his body and transformed into poplars. For all eternity they weep tears of electron (amber) at their brother’s grave.
Our fall Decograph Special Edition 1702, draws on the tale of the Heliades tears. The rich amber hue of the acrylic swirled with dark lines reminiscent of poplar bark that’s cut with an iridescent line that suggests the path of a tear. The color brings visions of the fall with its brownish-orange shade often seen with the change of seasons as autumn meets winter. The 1702 – Elektron special edition is limited to 60 pieces, each elegantly laser marked on the barrel with sequential numbers. Each pen ships in our custom made and marked pen capsule with a polished steel nib in sizes EF-B, 1.1mm stub, or 1.5mm stub, a standard international converter, and five black standard international cartridges. 2-tone, black lacquer, titanium, and 14K gold nib upgrades are available for an additional charge when selecting the nib choice.
