This kit supplies well-made pen hardware components along with the bushings and drill bit needed to make two attractive, durable fountain pens. The high-quality gold plating, which includes small amounts of cobalt and palladium for abrasion resistance, yields a crisply detailed, uniform surface and a precise fit between parts, combining ease of assembly with trouble-free function.
Modelled after classic Parker-style pens of the 1920s, the New Series pen has a domed cap, a decorative center band and a domed finial, giving it a solid, refined look. The German-made nib has a durable iridium tip. Each pen comes with a blue ink cartridge and has a quick-acting threaded cap that seals tightly to keep the ink from drying out.
The set includes a V-size drill bit (according to machinists’ bit-sizing standards) and the appropriately sized bushings. Requires a standard "A" mandrel and a minimum 5/8" × 5" pen blank, both sold separately. Because mishaps can occur during turning or assembly, we also offer brass replacement tubes.
