Elementar in German means elementary, basic. The definition is "of or relating to the most rudimentary aspects of a subject". The Elementar is the epitome of the definition, and the perfect entry level pen to begin your custom pen collection.
This base fountain pen is where my custom pen making started. It is also the model that I use when teaching other pen makers. This average sized pen is a little longer than 5.5" capped, is about .582" is diameter at the widest part of the barrel. The cap can be made flush with the body or be a little proud. Cap threads are 13mm.
This pen feels great in the hand whether taking quick notes or sitting down for a long journal session. It is available in virtually any color desired. Specify a 2 or 3 color combination in the notes when ordering and specify "primary" or "accent" for each color. As shown, the color choices would read "Black - Primary", "Red - Secondary".
This pen is the base model only. You may specify colors when ordering (use comments in section 4 of the checkout process).
I have had this pen since September 2020 and it is ALWAYS inked. The medium nib just glides on the page thanks to Jim's tuning. I chose the colors for this pen and it is so beautiful. The Elementar is so elegant and the threading is superb. It does not get stuck or misaligned. I can't say enough good things about it. I just ordered my second one in the Cyprium and I hope to order the Blue Caribbean soon enough.
When I asked for a custom version of one of Jim’s signature pens, Jim was more than willing to help me design a masterpiece that would suit my needs. I look for many years of using my writable art piece.
The craftsmanship is outstanding and I love the fact that I picked out the color combination (Nightwing blue and Black). Jim provided fantastic communication and provided further suggestions given it was my first custom pen. He even followed up after it was delivered to check on my satisfaction.
The #6 Jowo nib is so thick and juicy and I can't say a single negative thing. I am always looking at his social media for specials on his in stock pens.
I chose primary black and secondary red, just like the pictures above. The pen is really beautiful and of superb quality. The red has sparkles in it - lovely! I like bigger pens, and this one is the ideal size.
Jim, great craftsmanship and a big thank you to you!!
Amazing pen and amazing Craftsmanship. Thank you for taking pride in your work. It shows!!
