The barrel and cap of the Maxim Firebrand rollerball pen are machined from a solid stainless steel bar and have a wall thickness of 1.1mm. The barrels and caps are heat treated by hand with a blowtorch at temperatures ranging from 290C- 600C then plunged into a special blend of mineral oils to set and preserve the colours. The varying temperatures caused by the constantly moving flame create random patterns with colours ranging from yellow to brown, purple and blue.

When stainless steel is heated in this way oxygen diffuses into the surface forming a thin layer of magnetite and other iron oxides. The varying colours are the result of varying thicknesses of these oxides. The thickness of the oxides varies dependent on how long the flame is held in one spot and how long the temperature is maintained.

The formation of oxides does not affect the corrosion resistant properties of the stainless steel and the oxidization layer is very wear resistant but can be removed by sanding or intensive polishing. 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. 

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.  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.
