Made from Japanese ebonite (Nikko Ebonite), it offers many benefits to the user over other acrylic options. Ebonite is very warm in the hand. It does not get slick during long writing sessions where the hand may get a little damp from perspiration. It is also a very durable material, resisting dents and cracks from accidental drops.
This pro model is one of our smaller pens.. almost 13.5mm at the widest part of the barrel. A shorter and thinner grip section (~11.25mm) giving the holder good comfort and feedback. Length of the pen capped is 5.3" (137mm) The cap is securely postable.
I love this yellow ebonite... slightly mustard yellow in color, pairs wonderfully with a black nib. Green would also be a good choice.
The only adornment to this pen is a vintage looking clip. These clips are in short supply, so when we run out, it will be replaced with a more modern looking clip.
The only adornment to this pen is a vintage gold clip. This art-deco clip is in limited supply. The Americana will be limited to 30 total pens.
