This clipless, solid brass fountain pen from Blackstone Australia has
foregone the traditional pocket clip to provide a sleek, streamlined appearance in a triumph of form over function. There is no protruding pocket clip to interrupt it's sleek, streamlined appearance and it's simple, elegant lines.
It's curves are interrupted only by the flattened cap end and a 0.5mm step down from the cap to the barrel which is just enough to provide some visual interest without detracting from it's overall simplicity of design.
Blackstone have taken the fountain pen back to it's minimalist form with the pen made from just one material yet retaining it's primary intended function - to write with - and a pocket clip is not needed for that. There are some advantages to a clipless pen, no clip to become tangled with other objects when carried in a briefcase, purse, folio or pocket. It's not designed for a shirt pocket but slips neatly into trouser or jeans pockets.
The Blackstone Clipless pen is a step forward and a step back as most fountain pens did not have a pocket clip until the 1920s when it became fashionable to carry them in shirt and jacket pockets.
The Blackstone Clipless fountain pen is machined from solid brass and the barrel and cap have a wall thickness of 1mm. The threaded cap screws onto the barrel with coarse, industrial threads that will never strip or cross thread. This is a solid, heavy metal pen designed to last a lifetime and the optional German Made JoWo nibs provide the ultimate handwriting experience.
Brass is one of the most enduring materials on Earth. Brass is an incredibly durable metal and this pen won't rust, fade, crack, or break if dropped. Scratches can be polished out or the pen can be left to acquire scratches and knocks and develop a natural patina over time and it's own unique aged appearance.
The brass 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 brass 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 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 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.
The Heavy Metal series from Blackstone's pen collection is a series of metal pens with barrels and caps machined from solid metal bars with wall thicknesses of between 1mm and 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.
