Black Tie Affair


It is for good reason that gold and black are a classic combination that never ages. This pen would be at home at any black tie affair, whether it be The Met Gala, a Royal wedding, or a place at the captain’s table when voyaging. It is even rumoured to be a possible replacement for the Oscar at the Academy Awards, due to it being more beautiful and much more practical than the current statuette.

Update: We can now make the Black Tie Affair in the original model, with rounded ends, or in the Whitney model. (Please see the photographs for a comparison.) The original dimensions were: Total length (closed): 150 mm (5,9″). Length (pen only, no cap): 140 mm (5.5″). Diameter at widest point (excl. cap): 15 mm (0.6″). Cap thread: 14 mm (0.5″). If you would like this original model, please specify this when ordering your pen.

The Dafoe model


The Dafoe model is relatively long and curvaceous. We wanted to create a pen that has flowing lines and a feminine shape, hence the barrel is curved and narrows towards the section, flowing into the tapered section. The cap is also tapered. The finials are very slightly conical.
