This fountain pen is for those who must the very finest. The zebra wood is cut with precision to create the alternating grain patterns and a thin strip of ebony is carefully layered inbetween each section. The process takes many hours, and uses much more wood than my other fountain pens. I make each of these to order, and I will email you photos along the way of your pen being made when you select this collectable pen. I have chosen to use my very finest rhodium and black titanium adronments to accent the wood. The nib is gold over stainless steel, and it has an iridium tip for exceptional ink flow. Should you decide to upgrade to a solid 18k gold nib, Please order the large nib found on the bottom of the page. It will come with a piston converter as well as an international ink cartridge. Please allow 1-2 weeks for delivery on this very special product.
