RAF 100 FOUNTAIN PEN

RAF 100 FOUNTAIN PEN

 To commemorate and celebrate 100 years since the formation of the RAF I have designed a range of pens and pencils using original parts from the propeller of a World War 11 Spitfire.

I will also be donating 10% from each sale to the RAF Benevolent fund as a mark of respect to help former servicemen.

The idea of designing and producing pens and pencils from the propeller of a World War II Spitfire was the result of a conversation with a customer who was also a propeller manufacturer.

The brass brushed nickel plated cap also bears the logo of the RAF Benevolent Fund.

The pen body is turned by hand on a lathe similar to those used in the 1940's and each one will vary in colour and grain structure depending upon which part of the propeller was used.
The original propeller serial number R4723 is laser engraved onto each pen making it a unique piece of World War II history.

I use the fountain pen technology of Schmidt for the gold plated steel nib and inkflow system. Each pen is fitted with a converter that enables filling from bottled ink, alternatively a standard ink cartridge can be used.  
The cap has an internal thread that screws firmly in place but it does not 'post' onto the pen. 

 THE PEN IS BOXED WITH A CERTIFICATE OF AUTHENTICITY AND THE PROPELLER SERIAL NUMBER.

Length         120mm
