This elegant pen demonstrates the mastery of our artisans in advancing the ancient technique of guilloché engraving with modern designs. The “barleycorn” pattern, based on vintage pens from Parker and Shaeffer, is engraved into the barrel, cap and section, all of which are made of solid sterling silver. When rotated, the pen glimmers in the light.
The principle design element is the lotus flower, symbol of health and wellbeing. It is masterfully engraved into the pen barrel and then alternating petals are cut out to reveal the sub-barrel, which is made of hard cast and lathe-turned orange precious Italian acrylic resin. The pen is a joy both to write with and to behold. See also the solid version (without petal cutouts and sub-barrel).
The #6 steel nib, sourced from Peter Bock in Germany, is a very smooth writer, and is available in EF, F, M, B.
