Introducing David Oscarson Pens

Luxury Hard Enamel Fountain Pens in Exquisitely Themed Collections

Luxury, Limited Edition fountain pens are something to talk about! They boast some of the most elaborate and intricate designs in the world. The rare materials, creative concepts and labor intensive processes create more than just a design – they are meaningful pieces of art. David Oscarson is no stranger to creating these masterpieces or to pen collectors across the globe.

Ganesha Fountain Pen – Emerald Green/Gold

His pieces are handcrafted from 18-karat Gold and Sterling Silver, giving them a solid weight and world-class look and feel. They are also passed through a decorative technique, called Guilloche, where precise and repetitive patterns are engraved into the pen, bringing light and luster to the surface of the metal.

Hard Enamel is yet another level of patience, expertise and skill brought to the Guilloché technique. Using a mortar and pestle, a composition of glass, water and metal oxides is ground for hours by hand. When settled, the water is removed, leaving the fine paste that is the basis for hard enamel. A quill is then used to apply each coat of the mixture to the surface of the metal, ensuring that the entire Guilloché area is completely covered in enamel. The components are then fired in a furnace at temperatures exceeding 1,000° F, fusing the enamel to the metal and forming a layer of glass.

After cooling, the pieces are manually ground with a diamond file, restoring their proper shape and surface. This tedious process is repeated at length until the level of enamel reaches the depth required to cover the peaks and fill the valleys of each intricate Guilloché pattern. When the final stages of firing are completed, the pieces are polished and buffed, revealing the velvet finish of translucent hard enamel. A five-year apprenticeship is required to ensure that the highest levels of quality will be met in each individual Collection piece.

Introducing the Visconti Rembrandt Eco-Logic

Visconti recently released a new collection of Rembrandt pens and they offer something really unique! The Eco-Logic collection is made of bio-plastic from hemp plants. This is a non-polluting material that is still very durable so you can feel confident carrying your pen around with you. The material comes from the stem of the plant which provides cellulose. The cellulose is then processed into a strong and flexible plastic creating a bio-plastic resulting in a low environmental impact.

The Eco-Logic Rembrandt still comes with the features known and loved in other Rembrandt pens including a magnetic closing system, the “My Pen System”, and a steel Bock nib. Currently, the Eco-Collection is available with fine or medium nibs and comes in Blue, Black, and Red.

In the hand, the pen is a bit front-weighted due to the metal grip and slightly lighter resin body. When posted, the pen is quite well-balanced. The cellulosic material actually feels quite good to the touch. It’s slightly matte, so it’s not going to show shiny finger prints and hand oils quite as much as a shiny resin pen might. The texture of the resin body is very pleasing to the touch, it almost has a soft feeling to it, even though it’s a rigid and durable material.

You can see the full Rembrandt line from Visconti on GouletPens.com. 

What do you think of this new material?
