The Collector Line features the highest quality woods, components, and craftsmanship. Each includes all-rhodium parts/fixtures, a genuine Swarovski crystal, black titanium decorative bands, and German-made Iridium nibs (fountain pens) or Schmidt Safety Ceramic Rollers (rollerballs). These pens are certain to impress even the most serious collectors of high-end pens. These wide pens ship in the standard Elder Pens paper gift box, and will not fit in any of the wooden boxes due to their size.
This listing is for one of five identical spiral rollerballs. The pen features local recycled walnut, curly maple, Bolivian rosewood, and canary wood. Each pen is made from exactly 76 individual pieces of wood!
This wooden rollerball pen is the biggest, heaviest, wide-grip pen on the market. At 3/4'' diameter across the cap, nearly 6'' long, and 3.3oz, this is a serious desk pen for a serious collector. Don't try to treat this as a pocket pen, because it weighs nearly as much as 15 regular plastic ballpoint pens!
Finish: Gloss – The crystal-clear gloss finish holds several distinct advantages over the satin finish. It is much more durable, and will never need refinishing. It provides a clearer, better lens for light-colored woods and layered woods of contrasting colors. For intricate designs with inlay or small pieces, the gloss coating acts as a barrier to prevent small parts from separating. The “smooth” option guarantees an ultra smooth finish, achieved by a two-stage finishing process with cyanoacrylate, sanded to 12,000 grit, then waxed and polished.
