Handmade from a beautiful piece of exotic Cocobolo wood!
Note that this is a “Filigree” pen, and is not a standard straight pen holder. This pen will only accommodate the super-cool little Atome 1423 nib. The Atome 1423 nib is probably the best nib for tiny hairline filigrees…it is also extremely useful for fine-touching and refining your letters, or for adding gorgeous fine-line floursishes to your copperplate or broad-pen lettering. But this little nib is so tiny that it will not work in a standard straight holder, and the commercial holders that I’ve tried (supposedly made for this tiny nib) were not suitable either…they did not hold the nib securely, and the nib moved and wobbled around while I wrote with those holders. Not a good thing when trying to accomplish tiny filigrees or flourishes. So I designed my own holder to accommodate these awesome little nibs. This holder will hold the nib “rock solid”, and they are a joy to use. I put the same hardshell coating on these as on all of my handmade pens…12 coats minimum…the finish will never become sticky or gummy.
Also, this pen will arrive to you with a new Atome 1423 nib installed.
