I have an unusual and beautiful pen available here. Itís a Newman fountain pen, circa 2002. These stunning pens were produced for a brief time by entrepreneur Jim Newman Hickman. They were known at the time for their unusual materials, quality construction, and smooth nibs.
This is an example of the standard Newman pen, which is a substantial pen. I have included a Pelikan M1000 in two of the images to give an idea of size and scale. One of the interesting things about the Newman materials was that he had developed a proprietary resin with actual crushed up pearls. So thereís an underlying depth and shimmer to this yellow material, because thereís actual powdered pearl dust in it. The other interesting thing was his use of solid gold for the cap top jewel, and heavy gold plated sterling silver for other trim pieces. So all of the trim here is substantial, beautifully engraved, and finished to a very high quality. The material is somewhat translucent, and the black nib sleeve shows through slightly. This is why it appears a little darker there. That's not a stain.
The pen is substantial in the hand but quite light, and features a #6 18k two toned gold nib made by Bock. The cap posts, but itís more comfortable to use the pen without posting- itís pretty long if you post the cap. This pen is brand new and uninked, but I recall testing some of these pens out when they were new, and they were beautiful writers- very smooth.
This pen is brand new, and comes complete with outer cardboard and inner wood display box, but no converter or papers. Iíll put a converter in, I think it takes a simple international converter, but itís not the original one. These pens were a passion project for their maker, and were only available for a couple of years at the beginning of this century. This one is from 2002. They were quite expensive when new, close to $1000. Iím asking $800 shipped for this one.
