In spalted Norway maple with chrome finish.
The maple was submerged in turquoise dye and processed for 24 hours in a vacuum chamber. This piece was then heated to harden and stabilize the dye before turning on a vintage wood lathe. This pen is part of a Norway maple that fell during a snowstorm at Roger's forested home in Portland, Oregon. The spalting colorations expressed as the black decorative lines, are caused by fungal growth at the base of the tree — a highly desirable wood trait.
Includes German iridium nib.
Hexagonal Fountain Pen with Magnetic Cap
The nib should remain writing point up when not in use. The ink will drain down into the converter or cartridge. This avoids drying or clogging of the nib.
Placing your pen into a pen case or pouch will protect the pen from being scratched, keeping the finish looking new.
When flying, store your pen with the writing point upright when not in use. Ensure that either a full cartridge or converter is inserted or remove the existing cartridge/converter prior to the flight.
