This solid brass rollerball pen is made from very old brass salvaged from various places mainly around the Ipswich and Brisbane areas although some of it comes from interstate. We mainly use brass rods but also pipe, tube or whatever we can find that has approximately the right outside diameter so we don't have to machine the external surface and lose the patina that has developed over the years. The brass is cut to length then machined to the right internal diameter to accept the pen fittings and refills.
 
The pen pictured is the exact pen that you will receive. Each pen is unique because the patina has developed in a random manner over time and some pens have remnants of chrome plating that has worn away with usage over time.
 
We thoroughly clean the outside of the brass and leave it with no protective coatings. 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 with a protective oil coating and you can maintain it's appearance by regularly polishing it with a good quality mineral oil. Or 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 barrel and cap of this pen have a wall thickness of at least 1.1mm.  This is a solid, heavy metal pen designed to last a lifetime.

Maxim rollerball pens 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.  To post or not to post is no longer an issue. The Maxim barrel is specially threaded to allow the cap to screw on and post securely without damaging the barrel or the cap.
