Hooked Needlewood Jr. Gentlemen's Fountain Pen
Hooked Needlewood can only be found in Australia (Queensland, New South Wales, Victoria, and South Australia). It is considered a shrub, the wood has to be naturally air dried which takes a very long time. This is truly a very rare one-of-a-kind pen.
The segments are Bloodwood, African Blackwood, and Maple.
The metal fittings are Black Titanium. The overall length is 5 1/4" (13.33cm), width is 9/16" (1.cm) wide.
Two-tone nib, size 5.
It takes a MonteVerde Fountain Ink Cartridge, or you can use a MonteVerde Fountain Refillable Ink Cartridge.
The very first thing I do is hand-select each piece and then turn the pen to the final shape. The pen is then sanded 7 times with progressively finer grits of sandpaper, to create a very smooth surface. Multiple different types of glue and waxes are applied to protect the pen for years of hard use. Each pen goes through a 21-step process to achieve the lustrous polished to a mirror-like shine.
Your pen will come in a wood flip-lid box.
The pen in the picture is the one you will receive. If you are interested in multiple pens, please contact me. Since each pen is a unique work of art, exact duplicates are not possible. But, I will do my best to create a pen that looks similar using the same wood and finish.
