This is a Solaris handmade acrylic fountain pen hand turned in my UK workshop using traditional tools and techniques. The pen has a high-quality chrome trim to compliment red, white and blue colours, handcrafted from an acrylic resin made for pen turning and this one is inspired by the British union jack colours on the pen barrels.
This fountain pen has a premium gold-plated medium point nib, it comes with a cartridge to get you started also a premium ink converter pump in case you wish to use your own bottled ink.
Many people say that fountain pens are the best fine writing instruments. With these fountain pens, you will have a beautiful and eye-catching pen perfect for smooth writing.
The resin blank is cut to size for the pen and then drilled with a suitably sized hole, this is then mounted on my lathe and turned and shaped to round. Resin blanks are hard and sometimes difficult to work with so lots of Turners avoid them. The resin is then sanded from 120 grit through to 12000 grit for a high gloss finish.
Each fountain pen comes in a presentation box as standard. As each fountain pen is unique with varying ribbons and Iridescence they will all make unique handmade Father's Day, Christmas or Birthday gifts.
