Designed and refined over several months with the ambition of creating the quintessential cigar shaped acrylic fountain pen, the new Birmingham Sixth Avenue offers a charmingly elegant take on a traditional vintage-inspired design.
The genially proportioned barrel and cap contours of the Sixth Avenue flow to an assertive taper on each end. Drafted to produce a sturdy post, the design maintains it’s aesthetic charisma capped, uncapped, and posted. A unique 29mm grip comfortably accommodates a variety of finger placements by hands of nearly every size. With a capped weight of only 22 grams, the Sixth Avenue is well-suited for everything from a signature to the most protracted writing sessions.
The Riptide fountain pen is unique in that it has translucent elements to marry a semi-transparent effect with the solid blue/white acrylic flake. The price of this Sixth Avenue is higher than the standard models to account for the extra labor involved to clean and polish the interior of the cap, barrel, and section.
Each unit is fully machined in-house by the Birmingham Pen Company with the installation of your choice of German nib. The nib housing accepts both included internationally standard sized converter as well as standard ink cartridges.
