Welcome To Cyber Space Pens. Ceti Series Fountain Pen in Stabilized Buckeye Burl Wood.With Rhodium & 22kt Gold Hardware. This is a handmade fountain pen by Katie Manrique from the Ceti Series.
The body of the pen is made from a beautiful piece of Stabilized Buckeye Burl wood. The hardware on this pen is Rhodium with 22kt.
The Ceti pen is a posted pen, meaning the cap fits on the other end of the pen when the nib is exposed for writing. In this case it screws on both ends. The NIB is a Iridium Point and is made in Germany. The pen is 5-3/8 long with the cap on. With the cap posted for writing the pen is 6 & 9/16 long.
The pen body diameter is 0.515" and cap diameter 0.575". Every handmade pen comes with a certificate of authenticity. Because no two blanks are exactly the same, we roll the pen and take photos so that you can see what the pen looks like all the way around.Things you should know about handmade pens. So that you may better understand the process involved in making a pen by hand the following information will explain the process. The blanks come in blocks approximately 3/4" X 3/4" X 5 some smaller and some larger, and must put in a lathe and have a hole drilled to the proper size, trimmed to length, then a brass tube gets pressed into the blank to house the transmission. Then back into the lathe to have the outside turned to accept all the hardware, then sealed and polished to achieve a quality finish. All of these procedures require very precise tolerances to be made.
A handmade pen from a craftsman's lathe is a real thing of beauty. You would not believe the weight and feel of these pens in contrast to production run pens. The beauty of these pens and the feel of them cannot be fully appreciated in pictures. When we sell these in a person-to-person environment they outsell other pens in their price group.
We hope that you will enjoy these pens as much as we do. The hardware is put into kits so that all the parts work together to make the pen look good and function properly. A cheap transmission can ruin a good pen. Many kits look alike but are made by different companies, some are quality and some, not so much.
We will not use second rate kits to save a few bucks. These kits come in a variety of finishes and price ranges. There is painted hardware, gold colored, antique copper, chrome, brushed chrome, and satin chrome. Then there are precious metals like, 22ct.Gold, gold titanium nitride, black titanium nitride, rhodium and platinum. These Precious metals make the pen more expensive obviously. We try to offer a wide variety of pens in a variety of price ranges so that we can have something to meets everyone's needs.
There are hundreds of different acrylic blanks out there. Some very simple, one solid color, and some blended colors. Yet that is just the tip of the iceberg.
Many of them are 3D, have metallic finishes, colored threads, coffee beans, yes real coffee beans poured into the acrylic, turned and the sealed, crushed pearls (shells), and even 85% crushed stone (Like Turquoise) poured into the acrylic blank. Again, with a big price range and degree of work required to finish the blank. Wood blanks again come in all price ranges also. The burl cuts offer more character and are the choice cuts in all species.
With hundreds of spies available from Tropical woods like red palm pudak, and bloodwood, to Southeast Asian woods like Ambonya and Tamarind, as well as the more common woods there is a wide variety. Then there are all of the dyed woods. These make fantastic looking pens because the dye sets different in each part of the wood and retains the grain structure and is then polished and sealed. You can't find these in production pen.
Then there are the exotic blanks that you normally would not think of. My personal pen is made of buffalo horn. There is also deer antler and get this, Dyed, stabilized Corn Cobs. Don't laugh, they look cool.
I guess pens can be made of about anything you can cut down and put in a wood lathe. Cyber Space Pens is proud to offer handmade pens from Katie Manrique.
