With this well-made hardware, you can create an attractive, durable pen. High-quality platings yield a crisply detailed, uniform surface and a precise fit between parts, combining ease of assembly with trouble-free function.
Inspired by classic Parker-style pens of the 1920s, the flat-top fountain pen has a quick-acting threaded cap that seals tightly to keep ink fresh. It has an iridium-tipped nib and uses a blue ink cartridge (sold separately) or bottled ink (siphon pump included). The gold finish includes small amounts of cobalt and palladium for abrasion resistance.
The drill bit size is V. Requires a minimum blank size of 3/4" × 4". Drill bits, blanks, bushings and mandrels sold separately. Because mishaps can occur during turning or assembly, we offer brass replacement tubes.
We also offer a starter set that consists of two pen kits in a gold finish, bushings and the required drill bit(s).
