  • Diplomat fountain pen, non postable, blue sapphire & white saltire, rhodium plated


    Handcrafted in our Cheshire workshop from DiamondCast (containing real diamond particles) acrylic with white saltire. It is adorned with the finest premium quality rhodium plated components. Rhodium is an exquisite and valuable precious metal. Its brilliance, hardness, and beauty make it a favourite of fine pen collectors. Rhodium is extremely durable; it doesn't tarnish easily and is very resistant to scratching and acids. The silky smooth cap screw operation and writing experience are delivered by a fast action, precision thread, and a two tone iridium nib. This fountain pen uses bottled ink (ink reservoir included) or a standard short cartridge (sold separately). As with many fine executive pens, this pen is not designed to be used with the cap attached (i.e. the cap is non postable).

    This pen is supplied with a black velvet presentation box and a black velvet drawstring pouch.

    The Flag of Scotland, is called The Saltire or Saint Andrew's Cross, is a blue field with a white saltire. According to tradition, it represents Saint Andrew, who is supposed to have been crucified on a cross of that form (called a crux decussata) at Patras, Greece. It is said that Saint Andrew felt unworthy to be crucified in the same manner as Jesus Christ and asked for a diagonal cross/saltire instead. The cross was made from white wood, and Saint Andrew wore a blue robe, so these elements combined inspired the design for the flag.
