This solid copper fountain pen is made from copper salvaged from scrap metal dealers in the Ipswich and Brisbane areas. This copper is very, very old and has a rich, dark patina developed over many years. The copper that we use varies in appearance and we try to match the copper as closely as possible but each pen will be slightly different in appearance. Most of these pens will have slight dents, gouges and scratches that cannot be removed without removing the patina that has developed over many years. These imperfections and the dark patine give each pen it's own unique character.
The copper is left in it's natural state 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.
