The barrel and cap of this pen were made from a discarded Corian kitchen benchtop. Corian is an ideal material to make pens out of. It is an incredibly tough, durable plastic designed to withstand the rigours of a kitchen benchtop. It's non-porous, stain resistant, impact resistant, scratch resistant, requires minimal maintenance and it feels warm and comfortable to the touch. Minor scratches can be repaired with a very fine sandpaper. This particular Corian is mid grey in colour with black and metallic silver flecks and looks very similar to some forms of granite.
Corian was developed by Dupont in 1967 as an alternative benchtop and countertop material to granite, Formica and other traditional materials and has proven very popular throughout the world.
This particular Corian is mid grey in colour with black and metallic
silver flecks and looks very similar to some forms of granite. Corian benchtops are 19 mm thick and the benchtop was first cut into lengths 150mm wide. These 150mm wide lengths were then cut into pieces 150mm long x 19mm square, centre drilled, reinforced with brass tubes, cut to fit the pen, then turned on the lathe.
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.
Maxims accept standard international ink cartridges and converters so you don't need to hunt around for that special cartridge or converter that will only fit your pen. 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.
