Our fourth exclusive collaboration with local penmaker Chet Herbert is now available! Both companies are based in Richmond, Va and “The Fan” is a well known area of Richmond. “River City” is a nickname for Richmond as the James River runs through it, so that’s how this fountain pen came to be named, “The Fan – River City.”
The Fan is a tapered model that is postable and has a seamless body to cap fitment. This resin is so unique that no two pens are exactly alike! Each limited edition pen comes with a free matching Rickshaw pen sleeve and is individually numbered out of 200. The Fan comes with a silver #6 JoWo nib in sizes extra-fine through 1.1mm stub. The Fan – River City comes with a standard international converter, two blue short standard international cartridges and it can be converted to an eyedropper pen for even higher ink capacity.
With the Spotlight model, Taccia wanted to show the whole world the beauty of a pen on not just the outside, but the inside as well. Every solid acrylic rod is individually selected to ensure not just transparency, but a quality of material that gives a feel and weight for writing luxury and comfort.
Each pen is crafted from premium hand-turned resin, and both the exterior and interior are polished and inspected by hand to ensure maximum clarity and strength. This is a pen that you need to hold and use to fully appreciate. The Taccia Spotlight is fitted with a custom two-tone nib made by Sailor in Japan, available in either stainless steel or 14kt gold.
The cap screws to open/close and can push to post onto the back of the barrel when writing. The Spotlight comes with a Sailor proprietary converter and can also use proprietary Sailor ink cartridges.
Conklin All American Golden Walnut with Rose Gold or Gunmetal Trim
We are excited to introduce the The Conklin All American Limited Edition pen in three new wood options: Golden Walnut/Rose Gold,Golden Walnut/Gunmetal and Ebony Wood (Goulet-exclusive). The Conklin All American is impressively large in size, yet not so big as to be uncomfortable in the hand. This collection brings a vibrant, contemporary style to a classic, oversize streamlined design. The screw cap and barrel are carefully tapered to provide a nice balance. The trademark Rocker Clip allows users to easily secure the pen to a shirt or coat pocket. These pens come with a threaded, standard international converter and also use reliable short standard international cartridges.
All American Golden Walnut/Rose Gold
You have the choice of a reliable, smooth-writing German made JoWo #6 black steel nib in extra-fine, fine, medium, broad, or 1.1mm stub, or the Omniflex flexible black steel nib for variation in line width.
Pineider’s Back to the Future Limited Edition is more than just a pen, it is a journey into the past, capturing the the significance of Pineider’s history that began in 1774 and was reborn after WWII in 1949. The inspiration for design was drawn from the quill, an ancient writing tool, made out of bamboo cane, that has allowed mankind to hand down knowledge, wisdom and his own history generation after generation. The pen also captures the glamour of Italy in 1949, when it became the go-to destination for Hollywood movie stars, artists, politicians and scientists, in other words the ‘crème de la crème’ of the international jet set. The pens are beautifully presented in a book published by Pineider in 1949 – a book that captures the glitz and glamour of the times.
The clip, a further variant of the goose-feather quill, has a technical sophistication for its design motif and the mechanism is miniaturized and concealed in its interior.
The cap and barrel are in carboiridium, a carbographite cane with a special finish in spiralled carboiridium lending it a moiré effect whenever it is exposed to direct light.
The fountain pen has a soft 14kt gold nib that is endowed with excellent memory. The designers sought to achieve a flexible nib for writing rather than a nib for calligraphy, which performs in a somewhat different manner.
Dante Del Vecchio is the amazing designer behind this limited edition pen; 949 fountain pens or roller pens with a single world numbering system.
