Titanium, forged in supernovas, is the element that made the SR-71 Blackbird possible. A naturally corrosion-resistant and extremely durable metal that has an excellent strength to weight ratio, far better than steel.
Titanium is used for manufacturing medical implants for its strength and ability to survive in harsh environments and as such, is an ideal and safe material for the Serendipity pen since some inks can be quite acidic or alkaline.
The anodised finish gives a beautiful and unique lustre that interacts with light and your touch, subtly changing colour as you use it.
Serendipity - A Collaboration between James Finniss of Pensive Pens and Robert Oster of Robert Oster Signature Inks. This Hybrid Pen was developed over several months of careful planning and prototyping.
NOTE: Please don't forget to leave your nib choice in the order comments or we will send a random nib depending on available stock. Nib options are EF, F, M, B, 1.1 Stub. Custom pens can take up to two weeks for manufacturing though it is generally much quicker than that. Please let us know if you are in a hurry and we will do our best to accommodate.
Made in Australia, Serendipity - the Hybrid Pen takes the form of a traditional dip pen but it has been engineered to hold a modern fountain pen nib and feed. The large feed allows the pen to have a generous gulp of ink and with a single dip you can write or draw well over a page!
Capillary action draws a very generous amount ink into the feed and reservoir behind the nib. The pen can be dipped quickly for a small amount of ink or you can hold it in the ink for a few seconds to get pages of writing out of it.
This type of pen is absolutely ideal for artists or calligraphers who like to change colours often. A quick swish in a glass of water is all that is required for a quick clean and it is ready for another colour. The nib can also be removed very easily by gripping it with two fingers and simply pulling it out for a full rinse/clean which also makes it perfect for those who like to test out new inks and make ink swatches.
The Serendipity will accept any size 6 nib so you are free to try out any nib size you like. Each pen will be shipped with a JoWo nib that has been tested and adjusted to write perfectly. You may also have some success with a flexible nib.
