Churchill Fountain Pen
This full-sized fountain pen is called the Churchill, featuring an Iridium Point Germany-tipped medium nib. The barrel and cap are finished in colorful acrylic with silver and chrome trim.
The pen’s size confers some heft to it and makes it comfortable to write with if you have larger hands. The top is not postable (cannot be set on the opposite end when unscrewed from it’s “closed” position where it protects the nib) because it would simply be unwieldy to write with in that position.
This pen comes with a piston converter already installed and ready to go for those who prefer using inkwells but they will also accept standard ink cartridges for those who prefer that over bottled ink. Note that some replacement nibs, e.g., JoWo and Bock, made in Germany, will fit this pen for those who prefer to try other thicknesses of writing – I have tested both these with “fine point” steel nibs and can make the pens with these nibs if you want; please let me know. This is important for you to know as it ensures that your pen is a long-lasting writing instrument that can evolve with your style and writing needs.
When you buy this product, you will get:
> a very cool, elegant pen that writes well
> a comfortable pen to write with (speaking from experience)
> an attention grabber for anyone who sees you using it
> a velvet pouch to protect and keep it shiny
> a unique writing instrument that can evolve with your writing needs
About the nibs: I have seen several sellers of pen kits state that the nibs stamped with “Irridium Point Germany” that come standard with pen kits that we all use are made in Germany and are made of irridium (a very hard metal alloy), which is not true. However, the nibs of these pens can be removed (indeed, you may wish to do this periodically to clean your nib and ink feeder if you do not use it often as ink may dry and impede the smoothness of flow) and replaced with nibs that are made in Germany (as mentioned above, Bock and Jowo nibs are made in Germany for many brands of pens). This gives you the possibility to find nibs that suit your particular writing preference.
