** New small batch now available **
Machined and polished by hand from Nick and his father in their Western Pennsylvania workshop, the Birmingham Model-A fountain pen is the flagship release of the Birmingham Pen Company. The Model-A comes stock with a gift box, German ink converter, and is compatible with standard International ink cartridges as well as #6 nibs.
The new Obsidian Model-A Fountain Pen features a hand buffed body and cap that's been polished to a captivatingly mirrored black finish. Each piece includes a removable German K5 ink converter and is compatible with German #6 size nibs.
The underside of each pen is engraved (by bit) with the Birmingham insignia as well as a unique serial number indicating the day, month, year, and order of production for the given day.
To our knowledge this is the best priced ebonite production fountain pen in the world outside of some made in Asia. Our direct-to-consumer business model cuts out the middleman and allows us to price our house machined pieces for prices close to what would otherwise be the wholesale price before retail markup. Fountain pens with very similar (or same) inputs are available today from other makers at prices $400 and above.
The latest version of Model-A pens has been slightly re-designed since the original release, check out the Model-A updates...
