UPDATED STAY-FIT CAP
We pride ourselves on improving and adapting our products to ensure they are functioning as they should. The Fountain K was our fountain pen redesign of our K Series pen that we released in 2016, and through the years we've made improvements to the Fountain K to increase its functionality and comfort. Our latest improvement comes in the form of what we are calling a new Sta-Fast cap. Via user feedback, we realized that in certain carry circumstances the cap would come unscrewed, particularly in tight fitting pants. The Sta-Fast cap provides a firm closure as the cap is fully seated, causing an internal cap o-ring to seat firmly against a machined flat just past the grip section. The Sta-Fast cap has been carry-tested by our staff and testers for an extended period of time and has passed all of our tests with flying colors.
The Fountain K is a compact, machined fountain pen that comes in aluminum, brass, and copper. The Fountain K uses German-made Bock nib assemblies known for their quality and long life. Also included with each pen is a Schmidt K5 cartridge converter and 2 black Monteverde short international ink cartridges. The grip sections are available in several finish and material options so you can customize your pen even more. The thread-on cap uses triple-start threads to securely attach itself to the pen and to allow the removal of the cap with only 1.5 revolutions. The new Sta-Fast cap features and internal silicone o-ring near the threads that seats on a machined flat just past the grip section, and provides a secure, tight fit that keeps the cap from coming unscrewed when pocket carried. We also test, smooth, and tune every nib before shipping your pen to ensure the nib is writing as it should. The nibs are tested using a K5 converter and our ink which is made by Papier Plume. Cap does not post on rear of pen. Designed and manufactured in the USA.
