    The Boss fountain pen is a statement piece. With it's it timeless design and rhodium and gold fittings it is a classy pen. It is well balanced and feels amazing to write with, it simply glides across the paper. The Boss is a fountain pen for discerning tastes. The natural uniqueness in the woodgrain and timber colour variations, means that each wooden pen we create is one of a kind.

    This pen is handcrafted from timber with a story: Spalted silky oak timber. Spalting is a valued wood colouration process caused naturally by fungi. Spalting increases the contrasts of light and dark colours in the timber and makes brown and black lines running through the wood appear. This timber was grown on a beautiful block of land in Grafton owned by our family. The silky oak tree fell due to natural causes and lay undisturbed in its bushland habitat enough years for the spalting process to begin. Several logs were carried on the shoulders of a man in a flannelette shirt and leather work boots and strapped onto the roof of a Toyota Landcruiser to the north-side of Brisbane. 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 plated, 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, approximately 0.5mm of writing width and features a non-postable end cap.

    This fountain pen uses easily replaceable international standard ink cartridges and comes with one sample black ink cartridge and extra cartridges can be purchased below. It also features an environmentally friendly piston converter that allows you to refill your pen from bottled ink.

    This pen is handcrafted by skilled wood artisans. Each of the 10 steps in the pen making process are undertaken with precision and flair. 10 coats of CA emphasises the natural beauty of the timber and creates an exceptional, super glossy and protective finish.

    This fountain pen is presented in a quality, black pen box.
