We're coinciding the release of our latest fountain pen with our first trip to the DC Pen Show. Our latest release in our Signature Series, the Vertex fountain pen will be available for purchase exclusively at the DC Pen Show August 3-5.
This new release is a pocket fountain pen machined from U.S. made acrylic acetate. It is designed as an eyedropper but can also accept standard international cartridges. It features a non-standard grip section that widens to the width of the barrel and when machined out of translucent material provides an "ink window" that is visible with the cap on or off. The Vertex utilizes two o-rings in the section and barrel, one below the section threads in the barrel and the other at the base of the nib; these two o-rings eliminate the need for silicone grease to seal the grip section and barrel. A third o-ring in the cap provides for an airtight cap seal as well as a snap cap design. Designed with a torpedo shaped body, soft curves, a concave upper cap design; the features are comfortable and provide a unique look to a traditional design.
The Vertex fountain pen retails for $120 dollars with a Bock polished steel nib, is available in Black or Green, with grip sections in Translucent Orange, Red, Blue, Amber, and Smoke. It comes with a custom fit, black with grey stitching Rickshaw Bagworks pen sleeve. The full production run expected release is late September 2018.
