A virtually indestructible writing fortress, the hefty Ironsides is our very first alloy fountain pen. The Fire Ant variant features a bright red clip and nib. Fully machined by Dad from a high-grade stainless steel rod, each fabricated part undergoes at least 3 finishing steps prior to assembly of the section, barrel, cap, and threaded finial. Every piece includes a proprietary pocket clip shaped by hand in-house on Nick's homemade clip jig.
Each pen is built to order with your choice of 8 nib options. Pocket clips on the Ironsides are swappable post-purchase; we plan to have a variety of clip finishes available in the future beyond the two options we have today. A removable full-size ink converter comes installed.
Since this is a Production pen release, each piece is assigned a unique engraved index number with 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.
