This pen is a steampunk inspired design with chromium and gun metal (dark chromium) finishes. The antiqued layered copper is cast in clear acrylic for a smooth protective finish.
Steampunk is a type of subculture that mixes the clothing styles of past generations (such as the Victorian era) with modern conveniences, creating inventions that look as if they could have been created generations ago. It is the information age as it would have been in the steam powered era of the late 1800’s.
This is a twist pen and uses a Parker style ink filler. The standard ball point filler has been upgraded with a Schmidt Easy Flow 9000 Ballpoint Refill that combines the advantages of a ballpoint refill with the ‘liquid ink’ feel of a rollerball. Standard Parker style fillers are available at office supply stores or on this site. Schmidt Easy Flow 9000 refills are available on this site.
The pen ships free and includes a gift box.
