GW Alpha Fountain Pen in Charcoal Cebloplast
Designer: GW Pens
Please contact me for availability.
The Alpha represents the beginning of a new line of fountain pens from GW Pens. The cap, body, and lower grip section were all handcrafted from the same material giving the pen a touch of modern flair. The material itself is Charcoal Cebloplast from Mazzucchelli, a cellulose acetate that hasn't been made since approximately the 1930's.
The nib pictured is a ruthenium #6 Extra Fine point, but Black Oxide is now offered instead in addition to polished steel. The pen writes incredibly smooth, adding an almost wispy feel as you write with the barely-there weight of this pen.
Capped the pen measures just over 5" long. The body is just about 4 3/4"with a total length of approximately 7" when the cap is posted to the rear. There is no clip; the material has such an incredible depth and flow it seemed best to let the eye wander uninterrupted.
Because this material is no longer produced only a limited number of Alphas will be available in the Charcoal Cebloplast color scheme. Each will ship in a GW pen box and includes a drawstring pouch and polishing cloth. If shipped to a NJ address sales tax will be added.
