Handmade Kitless Antler Kiseru Zutsu Style Short Pocket Fountain Pen 13. Smooth Finish White Tail Deer Antler Japanese Kiseru Zutsu (Japanese Smoking Pipe Case) Style Fountain Pen.
Designed as shorter Kiseru Zutsu pocket style type pen. Actually these shorter pens look a little more cozy than the long ones..
This is all Handmade and One-of-a-kind Kitless Pen and as such it takes time and effort to make. End result is that not many similar looking pens are ever out there; and if that is your particular kind a cup of tea - then it's available here.Materials: WhiteTail Deer Antler body and pen itself also. Brass tube insert inside; brass tubing is polished so it would not damage pen finish, also additional antler ring is added to create a nice bumper and keep pen away from brass tubing. I don't see much problem with brass tubing inside even without a bumper - when nicely polished and waxed it does not really affect/scratch any pen finish at all. Still, as with all of these kiseru zutsu style pens, care has to be taken when insert and close pen.
Elk antler will give nice dark marrow look but, whitetail deer will have very nice colorful yellow marble look marrow inside. Here yellow and brown contrast is absolutely great and was exactly what I was looking for. This pen is one of my first experimental pens while wandering through the wonderful old Meiji and Edo Era Kiseru Zutsu art world; so therefore some proportions may be off here and there. But first pen has to be made to see where proportional shape beauty is; notes have to be taken and improvements in next pens have to implemented later then.
There are pens out there in this style but I have to find my own way to do this; design options of what can be sculpted and carved here are unlimited - everyone can have a little career in this area of art, certainly this particular area is where my main focus will be in the years ahead. Threads: Handmade Ebonite and Resin threads. Finish: Cyanoacrylate (CA) and Wax. Fountain Nib Section: Modified Stock Nib Section and Feeder System with added handmade Antler decoration around; this was needed to separate ink from soaking through antler decoration. Designed for short ink cartridges, I'm not sure about short pump, should fit, I don't have one at hand to check right now.Nib: #6 Iridium Point Germany. Size: Long 4.385(111.35mm)x Wide. Weight: 1.27oz (36.2gr).
Clips for these kitless handmade pens also need to be "kitless" I think... I just don't have any finished ones at hand right now. Certainly I'm starting to sculpt some which would be nice to cast in silver or so, but I'm still some time away from that.Markings: No markings, but I made this pen... I'm at the very beginning of my pen makers career and I'm just not set up for smooth pen markings yet; stamp works great on softer briar wood but here some sort of engraver is needed to achieve the nice end result. I'm working on it though; I'm not even kidding (ha ha), it will be available soon.. Particular Cup of Tea: If this is not your particular cup of tea and you need different form of flavor (pen size, shape and/or as such) please contact me.
I have spent last 30 years in American work force as high grade professional model and prototype maker and as such I certainly have a skill to accommodate any changes needed, cheers. If you still see no Flavor of your Particular Cup of Tea: Certainly there are a lots of people, a lots of pen makers and lots of pens out there on a Face of the Earth, however, if you are wishing for One-and-Only-One-of-a-Kind a Pen which no-one of the other many people have, please contact me, certainly such an inquiry can be arranged, cheers.
