Fountain Pen Day 2021 Release
Limited Batch – 25 Pens
Fountain Pen Day 2021 is here and we’re ready to celebrate. Given a little bit of time we’ve curated two small batch Vertex special releases specifically for today. These two releases feature premium European resin similar to the Death in the Afternoon material. Small Batch 019 is a gorgeous blue with white swirled through. Small Batch 020 is a rich brown with yellow-amber swirled through. Initial sale pricing is valid through 11/07/21, after which they’ll return to retail pricing.
Small Batch 020 is machined from premium resin rod stock sourced from The Turners Workshop. The material is much softer than standard acrylic and the finished product has a wonderful warmth when in the hand. The brown is a lovely rich color reminiscent of rich mahogany color with varying amounts of yellow-amber swirled through. The color shift between the brown and the yellow is beautiful and makes for a truly unique looking pen. When customizing your purchase you’ll be prompted to select from four different grip options, one of these is brand new for this release: Orange Transparent, Brown Transparent, and Light Green “Coke Bottle” Transparent. You’ll also have the option to select from a variety of steel nibs, with titanium and 14k gold upgrades available. Ships in our machined Vertex box with lasered Small Batch 020 lid.
The Vertex is our 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. The Vertex’s basic design is that of a classic eyedropper pocket fountain pen. It functions with only four parts: a cap, barrel, grip, and nib. Simply add ink to the reservoir, and you can happily write pages of notes before you need to refill. Eyedropper pens can be tricky and messy, and we wanted to eliminate some of those concerns. During the engineering phase, we implemented designs of custom-fit o-rings to eliminate the need for silicone grease to seal the grip and nib areas. We wanted a smooth transition from grip to barrel, so we moved traditional breakpoint from the section back, and using 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 and reminiscent of the classic lines of Parker and Sheaffer pens. The Vertex is the latest step in our Design.History.Technology influenced Signature Series.
Comes standard with a Bock polished steel nib, with upgrades in titanium and 14k gold when in stock. The #6 nibs units are manufactured by Peter Bock in Germany. Also included with each pen is a 2 ml soft pipette and 2 black Monteverde ink cartridges. Each pen is designed and machined, by us, in the USA.
