  • Diplomat non postable fountain pen, buckeye, rhodium and gold plated


    This is a very elegant and contemporary style pen. Handcrafted in our Cheshire workshop from an exquisite piece of buckeye wood, which is polished to a mirror like high gloss finish. It is adorned with the finest premium quality rhodium plated components and features stylish gold Ti plated accents on the centre band and cap end. 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 reservior 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.
