The Boss fountain pen is a statement piece. Not only does this timber fountain pen look stunning, it has timeless design quality. It feels weighty in the hand, making it amazing to hold and to write with.
This pen is turned from Gidgee timber. Australian gidgee wood is an acacia timber prized for its strength and durability. Gidgee is Australia's hardest timber (and the third hardest timber in the world). The heartwood is a deep, rich brown colour and the outer sapwood is very pale. Gidgee timber has a very fine grain and can be highly figured. The indigenous Kalkadoon people made nulla nulla's, shields, boomerangs, swords and clapsticks from gidgee’s rich, brown wood. It is popular today for knife making, turned bowls, pens and jewellery boxes and recently musical instrument makers have begun using it. The natural uniqueness in the woodgrain and timber colour variations, means that each wooden pen we create is one of a kind.
The fittings are rhodium plating, with rhodium being one of the rarest and most valuable precious metals found in the world. Rhodium is incredibly hard wearing, is resistant to corrosion and will not oxidise. Rhodium has a silvery white appearance. The Boss fountain pen features castings that are done by hand in 22k gold, showing great lustre and a rich, deep gold tone. It has a tough iridium nib made in Germany, approx 0.5mm of writing width and features a non postable end cap.
This stunning fountain pen uses easily replaceable ink cartridges. The pen comes with one black ink cartridge, you can buy an fountain pen refill 3 pack below. It also features an environmentally friendly bonus piston converter that allows you to refill your pen from bottled ink.
Each pen is created by an artisan who hand turns each pen on a lathe in North Brisbane. Using a meticulous thirteen step sanding process and 10 coats of CA we highlight the simple, innate beauty of the gidgee timber.
This fountain pen comes in a quality, black presentation box.
