A hand made rollerball pen from Blackstone with an antique brass finish, matching antique brass trim, fitted with a quality German Made Schmidt 888 refill. This pen looks a hundred years old and the antique patina will continue to age and change to become as unique as it's owner. These pens are hand made and the finish on each one will be slightly different. There is not a lot of difference between them but they are not identical and the pen you receive may be slightly different to the pictures shown.
The brass has been chemically treated to hasten the aging process but just like naturally aged brass, metal polish will remove the patina and restore the brass to a shiny finish. To maintain the patina we recommend you that you lightly buff it with a soft cloth when necessary to remove oils or stains and never use any type of polish on it. The brass has no protective coatings and the appearance of the patina will be affected by how often the pen is used and how the pen is handled. Skin oils from your fingers also affect the patina creating a pen that is as unique as you are.
The barrel and cap of this pen are machined from a solid brass bar and have a wall thickness of 1.1mm. This is a solid, heavy metal pen designed to last a lifetime.The Heavy Metal series from Blackstone's Maxim Collection is a collection of metal pens with barrels and caps machined from solid metal bars with wall thicknesses of 1.1mm.
Maxims accept readily available, quality Schmidt 888 refills so you don't need to hunt around for that special refill that will only fit your pen. The Maxim barrel is specially threaded to allow the cap to screw on and post securely without damaging the barrel or the cap.
