Fountain Pen with #5 Bock Medium Nib and Diamondcast/Maple Hybrid
Diamond chips add the tiny sparkles to the Yttrium, Indium, and Manganese blue resin body of this unique fountain pen. The blue color was discovered in 2009, at Oregon University, so it is also known as Oregon Blue. The diamond particles are the recycled ‘waste’ of diamond bits lost during the cutting process. As certified by McKenzie Penworks, the diamonds are ethically sourced. A basic tune, writing test, and cleaning has been performed on the Bock #5 medium nib. Three full turns to remove the cap.
