Kiwi Ipsit CT Handmade Ebonite Fountain Pen with Flex Nib - Dark Brown/Green Mottled

Product Description:

This is my second handmade fountain pen for sale. Fully turned using my vintage Swiss Watchmakers' lathe. The ebonite rod used is the leftover from my master - AC Ramachandran (KIM ACR).

The seamless body and the clipless design style of this pen is largely influenced by some Japanese pens. The long section is influenced by some European pens .

This is an eyedropper fountain pen - i.e, bottled ink is directly filled into the pen barrel. You cannot use ink cartridges or converters.

Special Feature –Seamless Body,  no/least ink burping (which is a common problem with eyedropper pens), Ebonite Feed and Kanwrite Ultra Flex nib

The pen is almost free from ink burping. Use Silicone Grease on Grip/Section threads, to avoid any potential ink leakage.

Note on using this Flex nib pen:
Some experience of using a flex nib is required, so this pen is not recommended to those who are very new to flex nibs.
Slight pressure is required to get the flex. Do write slower than usual, especially when flexing. Over pressure and speed could cause "railroading".

The flex nib on this pen can produce a line width ranging from 0.35mm (normal, no flex writing) to 1.35mm (full Flex). Even though the nib is capable of producing more wider line, it is not recommended as this might cause a permanent damage to the nib.

Additional Notes:
Note 1: The actual measurements may differ slightly as each pen is handmade.
Note 2: The actual colour of the pen may differ from the images shown because of different monitor settings/calibrations
Note 3: The rippled/mottled/swirl design of ebonite rods are unique, and no two ebonite pens have the same design. So the design of the ebonite pen you get may differ from the design of the ebonite pen shown in the pictures.
Note 4: There might be minute colour spots on the pen body due to slight impurities in the ebonite rod.
