SOLD – Unique fountain pen: Purple Ombré

Tall and skinny, this Purple Ombré Unique fountain pen measures 160 mm (6.5″) from purple cap tip to mauve bottom, and 142 mm (5.5″) uncapped, from nib tip to bottom. It is only 14 mm (just over half an inch) wide at the widest point and the shimmery royal purple section is long and slender. It has a 12 mm thread inside the cap, which is ideal for a small hand.

The nib is a #6 Bock and is available in Fine, Medium and Broad, and in Polished Steel or Gold & Steel. Personally I like the way the Polished Steel looks good with the pen’s graded shading. (Please ‘scuse the smudges of purple ink on the Bock nib – I’ve been playing with a lovely Lamy cartridge that doesn’t quite fit, hence the telltale spots that give me away. I can always say I’ve been … tuning the nib?)

This one-of-a-kind Purple Ombré is sold, but if you like it we can try to make another pen similar to this. Unfortunately I did not save the recipe (*slaps forehead*) so I can’t guarantee anything. Making pen blanks with pigments is more alchemy than science, with a touch of fairy dust (and sometimes a few gremlin lint), and a lot of luck, but often the result is not what you planned, yet also totally delightful. Message me and we can experiment together …
