New Aluminum Special Release
The Vertex is the second release in our Signature Series which is built around using plastics and other resins as the main parts of the pen. From the beginning, we wanted to create something that looked, felt and functioned differently than other pens on the market. We wanted a smooth transition from grip to barrel, so we moved the traditional breakpoint from the section back, and used a third o-ring in the cap adapted slip cap functionality for the pen. The longer grip section allows for the use of an “ink window” with transparent materials which adds a little flair to the pen. The Vertex looks and feels streamlined and aerodynamic. With soft tapers, a cigar-shaped body, and a concave cap top; the Vertex is at once futuristic but also reminiscent of the classic lines of Parker and Sheaffer pens. After a few years of perfecting the Vertex, we’re now expanding into non-resin materials with the launch of the aluminum Vertex Special Release pens.
The Satin Blue Vertex Special Release rollerball pen features the style that sets this pen apart but with a new twist, a gel rollerball twist. The overall size is nearly the same with the cap outer diameter being slightly smaller than the original resin versions. This pen utilizes the same grip sections and o-rings making the Vertex now standardized in both resin and metal. For the Satin Blue finish, we modify our standard process and send lightly, finished tumbled pens to the anodizer for a non-bright dip coat of anodize. This process causes the transparency of the anodize and the slightly shinier finish tumbled aluminum to create a satin finish. Not as soft as matte and nowhere near as shiny as our standard “gloss” application, this version is a unique look that really comes together in certain colors, blue is one of those colors. Choose from all of our available grip section offerings in durable Makrolon, and rollerball tips in the following colors/materials: Black, Matte Black, Silver, Tumbled, Brass, Copper. Ships in our recyclable packaging with a custom vinyl sticker. The Vertex fountain pen is the latest step in our Design.History.Technology influenced Signature Series.
