We’re going all the way back to the first Al 13 Decograph we ever released, but we’re doing a slightly different take on it. The Monsoon – Al 13 – Decograph featured an orange cap and body with grey grip, finial, and clip. These colors and the name “monsoon” reference the summer storms we see in the desert. Monsoons are often preceded by massive dust storms that turn the sky an orange hue, then the grey clouds roll in and drop massive amounts of water that flood the parched desert. They can be both beautiful and dangerous at the same time. It was almost instantly one of most popular Decograph offerings. We only made about 100 total pens, 50 standard and 50 Stonewashed, before we moved on to other colors. The Super Monsoon is our updated take on this release. This time we’ve opted for heavy tumbled parts, over 6 hours in the tumbler to give the aluminum a nice soft texture. The caps, bodies, and grips have been anodized an amazing matte dark orange that really pops. We’ve capped off the pens with matte blue-grey clip and finials. The finished product is stunning, and with our new “Sta-fast” cap you don’t have to worry about the cap coming unscrewed in your pocket. This pen is the perfect choice for an on-the-go fountain pen if you don’t want to sacrifice size and comfort. Choose from a selection of tested, smoothed, and tuned nibs in polished steel or titanium to complete the perfect red and grey pen you always wanted.
