Black Tie Affair

Update: We can now make the Black Tie Affair in the original model, with rounded ends, or in the Whitney model. (Please see the photographs for a comparison.)

It is for good reason that gold and black are a classic combination that never ages. This pen would be at home at any black tie affair, whether it be The Met Gala, a Royal wedding, or a place at the captain’s table when voyaging. It is even rumoured to be a possible replacement for the Oscar at the Academy Awards, due to it being more beautiful and much more practical than the current statuette.


Nib: Bock #6 or Jowo #6. Please select Fine, Medium or Broad in the check-out. Polished steel and bi-color (i.e. steel & gold) are both available in Bock, but only polished steel in Jowo. (Please DM me if you need an Extra Fine.)

Refill type: Standard international fountain pen converter (supplied) or ink cartridge.
