The Frankie is unapologetically sophisticated. A statement fountain pen with charm and promising an inspired writing experience.
The Frankie features a modern gold plated design with a post-able faceted end cap in black. This well balanced pen has a German iridium nib for precision writing and uses easily replaceable international standard ink cartridges and comes with one black sample ink cartridge. It features an environmentally friendly piston converter that allows you to refill your fountain pen from bottled ink.
This fountain pen is created from rain tree timber. Rain trees are massive umbrella-shaped trees that grow to 60m tall with a crown up to 80m wide. It is particularly valued for its timber, and for shading crops but also supplies medicine for stomach ache, sore throats and skin conditions. Rain tree pods are edible, containing a brownish, sticky, liquorice-like, sweet-flavoured pulp. Historically a lemon-like fruit drink was made from the pulp. The popular, heavily striated rain tree timber is straw to smokey coloured and commonly found growing in tropical north Queensland, though it is not an Australian native.
Every pen is unique and handcrafted by Brisbane wood artisans. We take raw timber through a meticulous 10 step process finishing with 12 coats of CA to highlight the innate beauty of the timber and create an exceptional, super glossy and durable finish.
The Frankie fountain pen comes in a quality, black presentation case or you can add an engrave-able timber pen box below.
