The Will-o' the Wisp Ebonite Model-C is a cool hybrid matte black ebonite body and translucent resin cap. Our newest design from the workshop, the Model-C Fountain Pen is comprised of a meticulously polished resin with our very first house-made pocket clip. Clips and nibs are available in three finishes with every pen built to order after purchase.
Since this is a Production pen release, each piece is assigned a unique engraved index number with a matching hand-stamped letterpress Certificate of Authenticity. The uniqueindex numberindicates the year, month, and day the pen was completed, along with its individual place within the day's production... making every engraving one-of-a-kind. All of our fountain pens include a removable ink converter and choice of nib installed.
We’ve estimated that over 500 hours of research, design, and prototyping went into the Model-C pen model prior to having a bit touch the first bar of raw stock to machine a finished component. Parts begin as a rectangular bar of resin prior to being machined into one of 4 separate pieces: barrel, grip section, cap body, & cap finial. Afterward, each component is polished to an appropriate finish. Next, clips are individually bent by hand with a homemade jig prior to receiving one of three decorative metal finishes. Lastly, each pen is fully assembled per customer request.
The grip section of the Model-C includes extra threading to ensure a secure seal for writers who prefer to eyedropper the pen. We’ve included a silicone gasket that may be installed the section for added security.Silicone grease is a recommended addition on both the nib housing and section threading prior to an eyedropper conversion.
Every heirloom quality Model-C fountain pen includes our 100% satisfaction guarantee and lifetime warranty. Since we build each pen to order please allow 3-4 weeks for shipment.
