[Sold] Octavius – steampunk art fountain pen
Octavius is the most delightful octopus and despite not being able to see their face, one knows somehow they are smiling. Octavius wears an old-fashioned diving helmet and breastplate which, instead of being made of copper is a cute blue and brass. They are accompanied by a lamp fish with a steam-driven electric lamp, a squid, a jellyfish and a snapper in full steampunk regalia.
The barrel features a lighthouse entangled in a giant octopus’s tentacles, starfishes, bubbles and zendoodle waves. The pen’s section is a deep-sea-blue colour and bears a bronze ring.
Hanna drew her artwork on to one of our fountain pen blanks that we specifically designed for the purpose. Once the artwork was complete we coated it in an outer layer of clear resin which allows the owner to carry and use this art on a daily basis without it getting scratched or damaged. A portable, functional, one-of-one original.
This fountain pen is supplied with an engraved stainless steel Jowo nib.
Available in Jowo #6 in polished steel. Please select Fine, Medium or Broad at the check-out.
The Jabulani model
This is a gently curvaceous model, with a relatively wide girth of 16 mm (0,6″) narrowing to a 10,5 mm (0,4″) grip section and tapering to rounded ends. It has a triple start thread. It has our logo on the finial, and the finial is beautifully rounded, rather than dead flat, which adds to the pen’s voluptuousness.
