The barrel and cap of this pen are machined from a solid copper bar and have a wall thickness of 1.1mm. This is a solid, heavy metal pen designed to last a lifetime. Hard wearing Copper Chrome trim compliments the natural copper to create a robust and attractive all metal pen.
The copper is left in it's natural state with no protective coatings so you can decide what kind of finish you prefer. If you leave the copper be it will develop a unique patina over time. 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.
We'll ship this pen to you polished with a protective oil coating so you can decide what kind of finish you prefer. If you prefer the bright, shiny copper finish you can maintain it's shine by regularly polishing it with a good quality mineral oil or any quality copper or brass polish. If you prefer to let a patina develop you can simply do nothing and allow the oil coating to wear away or wipe it off with a cloth to hurry things along.
Copper Chrome is a copper alloy containing 1.2% chromium and is almost twice as strong and twice as hard as pure copper with excellent corrosion resistance. It will not age or tarnish like pure copper and most copper alloys and will maintain it's shine with minimal care. Copper Chrome is mainly used in electrical contacts where mechanical strength is required but it's attractive and hard wearing qualities make it ideal for pens.
Gold plated or two toned OEM or JoWo nibs would compliment this pen very nicely.
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. The metals are left in their natural state and can be polished regularly to maintain their bright shiny appearance or allowed to develop an aged patina that will be as unique as it's owner. Hard wearing trim platings of Titanium, Titanium Gold, Copper Chrome and Chrome have been chosen to compliment the natural durability of the thick metal.
The Maxim series includes a number of features designed to enhance and simplify the fountain pen experience. Now you can have the nib that you want when you want it. It's easy to change nibs with the Maxim's screw in nib assemblies and there is a wide range of nibs to choose from.
