There are a lot of fountain pens on the market under $100 and MANY of them just are not of high quality! Many new pen enthusiast can easily get frustrated with a fountain pen that won't write smoothly or have a good ink flow causing it to skip or catch/scratch on the paper causing the user to just give up on the fun and enjoyable hobby of handwriting. We have put together a package to eliminate this!  After doing 3-4 months of R&D work with this fountain pen we are pleased to produce it and offer it at 50% off the MSRP along with rewards!

We wanted to offer a fountain pen to cover many different themes that people might like. This is a modern pen with a vintage twist and you can match this to how ever you feel or your taste!

You will have many options to choose from with this fountain pen!

4 color choices:

  • Black or Blue for a more traditional or executive look.
  • Red for those that like to have fun and stand out
  • Grey with pearly iridescence and a Red line for more of a vintage look!

Your nib options are many:

You will be able to choose from extra fine, fine, medium, broad. And for those of you who like to play around with calligraphy or just want to make your cursive hand writing look even cooler than it already does, we offer a 1.1 and 1.5 stub! The stub nibs are at NO extra cost to you! This is an option that some other brands charge extra for.

We use a #6 JoWo polished steel nib and a piston converter is included for you to use your favorite ink colors!

HERE IS A REVIEW OF THIS PEN FROM AN INDIVIDUAL SOURCE.

Its important to note that everyone of our fountain pens whether its our new Classic Fountain Pen or any of our other fountain pens in our many collections are always tested and hand tuned by our in house nib smith! You will get a small cert stating that it was tested and tuned as well as signed. For all our other collections see our website here. Our Website

For those of you that opted for the rewards giving you the rollerball combo, you will enjoy a very smooth flowing Schmidt 888 rollerball cartridge! This is a very easy change over and you will be provided with all the parts along with step by step instructions on how to convert your fountain pen over to a rollerball and back again if you so desire. 

Please note this is a non-posting pen.

Each pen will be shipped in a velvet drawstring pouch that can be used to protect it in a briefcase, purse or any other place that may cause the pen to get scratch from something rubbing up against it. We found this to be more useful as most people tend to through a box away. If you would like a box for gifting, just let us know and we would be happy to get you a price for one.

In closing we have been making pens for the pen enthusiast since 2009. About 3 years ago we branded to Opus Mechan honoring fathers and grandfathers.  Still doing trade shows along with web sales, we're proud to assist the pen enthusiasts with extremely high quality pens and customer service. We are proud to offer this campaign to you and hope that you will consider allowing us to produce this outstanding pen for you!

Thank you for your consideration!

Risks and challenges

For the most part the risks are low. We have our nibs lined up, suppliers are 6-8 week lead times and production times will vary based on the success of the campaign. We have put in estimated delivery times and tried to estimate to the long side so we make our delivery times.
In the unlikely event that we run behind, we will keep our backers updated and address any concerns they may have.
