The First Edition of Ironsides has sold out only hours after release, thank you!
A virtually indestructible writing fortress, the hefty Ironsides is our newest addition to the Model-C lineup and our very first alloy fountain pen. 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 2 clip finishes and 25 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 the First Edition release of the Ironsides Fountain Pen, each unit will be engraved with a unique index number from the first production batch. Purchases arrive presented in a foiled paper Birmingham Pen Co. gift box, including a hand-stamped letterpress Certificate of Authenticity with matching pen part number & unique First Edition index number.
