Fountain pen handmade in Oak grown at Cotehele estate, completed with gun metal coloured fittings. This is a beautiful quality handmade fountain pen. The comfortable shape in the hand is complemented by the wonderful natural feel and warmth of the wood with a traditional wax finish.
Features a quality German made, medium nib and is approximately 130mm long and 15mm at the widest part including the cap. The pen is postable(the cap can be attached to the end while in use). Each pen will vary slightly as no two pieces of wood are quite the same.
Cotehele was the ancestral home to the Edgcumbe family for centuries. The Tudor house, perched high above the River Tamar, is decorated with tapestries, arms and armour, pewter, brass and old oak furniture.
The pen accepts small 'International' ink cartridges, or a refillable ink reservoir also included.
The pen will be shipped in the case as pictured. Along with a small certificate giving details of the wood, an ink cartridge to get you started and also an ink convertor so you are able to make use of bottled ink.
All pens are handmade by me beginning with rough cut woods for the body. The body of the pen is turned on a lathe to the final shape as seen on each pen. The body is then sanded, sealed, waxed and polished to its final finish. Assembly is completed by using pre-made high quality pen components for long lasting performance.
