“Copper is a chemical element with the symbol Cu (from Latin: cuprum) and atomic number 29. It is a soft, malleable, and ductile metal with very high thermal and electrical conductivity. A freshly exposed surface of pure copper has a pinkish-orange color. ” – Wikipedia
The Decograph in copper, from finial to finial is finally here. We’ve used the same Tellurium Copper that we use for our other pens and now we’ve successfully put together a complete copper pen. The bodies and caps are machined on our Swiss CNC lathes. The finials and grips are machined on CNC machining centers. We’re using aluminum clips that we’ve CNC milled, then had professionally plated. The use of a copper-plated, aluminum clip ensures a matching look and similar patina rate while providing the strength of our normal aluminum clips. All of them have been put through a new, proprietary finishing and tumbling process to smooth out and unify the look and feel of each part. We’ve then assembled the parts with our white glove service, tested the o-ring fit, nib thread pitch, and every other aspect of the pen to ensure it meets our expectations for a premium fountain pen.
This is the current Decograph with improvements made to the pen to make sure it meets our standard for quality, fit and finish, and writing experience but it’s machined out of Tellurium Copper. First, we slightly modified our single piece, milled clip by machining it at a slight angle. This ensures the clip rests on the cap providing tension when the pen is carried, even clipped to thin silk, the pen stays put. Second, we’ve adapted the upper finial with a longer thread and added a lower finial. Both are thread-in units that are semi-permanently affixed with Loctite to make sure they don’t come unscrewed at any point. Lastly, we added an o-ring in the cap that keeps the cap firmly in place when the pen is pocket carried. The Brass Decograph ships in our custom recyclable cardboard box, a sunshine polishing cloth, and a KPC sticker.
Each pen ships with a polished steel nib in a variety of available tip sizes, a standard international converter, and two black standard international cartridges. Titanium and 14K gold nib upgrades are available for an additional charge when in stock.
