01. CAVALIER CONTRAPTION

Combining writing elegance, minimally machined pieces, and modular assembly, the Pocket Fountain Pen and Extender Kit is equal parts cavalier and contraption. 

 


 

02. BODY / BARREL

The Pocket Fountain Pen presents with a 100mm barrel while the Extender Kit adds length: specifically 28mm.   

03. FINE WRITING NIB

The FH241 fountain pen nib unit from SCHIMDT® has a wing span of 7mm and is crafted from stainless steel with an iridium point for durability. The nib comes in blank stainless steel for the Black Oxide and Brushed Chrome finished pens, and plated gold for the Raw Brass pen.   

 


 

04. INTERCHANGEABLE WRITING HEAD

With the SCHIMDT® Cartridge-Rollerball System, the 0.5 point ballpoint tip is never discarded, using instead the disposable ink cartridges that also fit with the FH Nib. Both Nib and Ballpoint screw into the gripper jacket of the Section.   

 

 

05. REFILLABLE INK RESERVOIR vs. DISPOSABLE CARTRIDGES

The 100mm barreled Pocket Fountain Pen uses disposable ink cartridges, but the Extender Kit comes with a SCHMIDT Refillable K8 Converter - made with two nickel plated bands and a crystal clear ink reservoir. The Pocket Fountain Pen with Extender Kit, therefore, provides the option for switchover from disposable cartridges to refillable ink-drawing mechanism.   

 

 

06 MODULAR CAP SYSTEM

As with its utility, versatility is also built into the aesthetic of the Pocket Fountain Pen, with the clip mod designed to screw on to the top end of the Cap. With four options — the clip, clipless, keychain, and stylus — the Pocket Fountain Pen gives options to those who seek pocket carry, sleek appearance/looks, attached on-the-go essential, or double-ended writing functionality.
