Seller: Top-Rated Seller cyber_space_pens (64.334) 99.7%, Location: Lake Placid, Florida, Ships to: Worldwide, Item: 362199405284 **** RAW SOLID BRASS PEN BODY **** This is a handmade twist action Celtic ballpoint pen made by Placid Crafts. Yes, this pen is made from a Solid Brass Rod. The Hardware on this pen is Antique Pewter. This pen features intricate Celtic Knot scroll work as well an emerald color cabochon on the end. The Celtic Knot dates back to the 5th century and represents the truth of eternity and interconnected spirit. The rod is cut to length, drilled out and a brass tube glued in. From there it is turned in a metal lathe to shape and fit and sanded and polished. The pen is 5-1/4" long. I would consider this a larger diameter pen because the pen body is .530. With the copper pen body this pen weighs 3.0 oz. making this a heavy pen. This pen is twice as heavy as the same pen with an Acrylic pen body. The raw copper, brass, and aluminum pen bodies are very unique and not like the standard pen blanks that you buy. This pen body is RAW BRASS, It has no lacquer, sealer, or acrylic covering. This pen will Patina as raw brass will. New as it is, it is shiny. Brass is a soft metal and will scuff up, scratch, and age as raw brass will. It will take on an antique look as it ages. / Pen #222 RAW BRASS / NOT POLISHED / NO FINISH / NO LACQUER NO PROTECTION / PATINA WILL PROGRESS THE UNPROTECTED FINISH PATINAS AS IT AGES. Patina is a Progressive Process, Not a Finish... THE FINISH IS RAW BRASS........it will not stay shiny as it comes unless you clean it from time to time. if you get more patina than you like simply clean the pen with some Never Dull and start over. This is not sold as a patina pen. The finish is raw brass, and Patina is a process that WILL happen to this pen. We have buyers that are disappointed if the pen comes like new (less patina) because they like the patina, other buyers are disappointed if the pen comes with more patina than pictured. Yet others say they like the way it came but just keeps getting darker..... Yes, it is a process. Personally I love the patina.

Turquoise / Medium About Fisher Space Pens:Fisher Space Pen is yet another great breakthrough from space research. No other pen has so much to offer. This pen was designed in 1965 by Paul C. Fisher, for NASA, and with no cost to NASA or our government. Ordinary pens rely on gravity to write. Hold them upside down and they quit. There was a need for a pen that would work in the zero gravity vacuum of space, and in extreme conditions. Paul Fisher developed such a pen. For the ink cartridge to write at any angle the cartridge was charged with 35 PSI of nitrogen. A small ball type float was used to separate the gas charge from the ink and it had to be hermetically sealed to hold the charge. With that type of pressure a precision fit stainless steel machined socket with a tungsten carbide ball and a specially formulated thixotropic ink was used keep the pen sealed and leak free. Fisher Space Pens have been used on EVERY Space Shuttle mission, both USA and Russian. They were also featured on a Seinfeld episode. ..... Imitated but never duplicated..... Because it is hermetically sealed it will not dry out like other pens and has a shelf life of over a hundred years. It does not rely on Gravity, It writes upside down, in the vacuum of space, on wet paper, underwater, in the freezing cold of -30° F, and the boiling heat of 250° F. Fisher Ink cartridges stay leak free and writing longer, cleaner, and more consistently than any other ink cartridges. Fishers are not only utilized by Astronauts but the Thunderbirds, the Blue Angels, the Navy Seals, and the Canadian Snowbirds also use the Fisher pen. Fishers are favorites among Firefighters, Paramedics, and Police Officers. We have even sold them to Tow Truck operators is Alaska that needed a pen to write in subzero conditions. If you count on a pen to work, you need a pen with a Fisher ink cartridge. The Fisher Bullet Pen was exhibited at the New York Museum of Modern Art. It has been featured on the Tonight Show, Good morning America, John Ratzenberger's Made in America, and an episode of Seinfeld. Still proudly made here in the USA and I can tell you first hand Fisher Space Pen Company is made up of great people. Fisher has a wide variety of pens to fit almost anyone’s wants and needs in a variety of price ranges. Pens from the economy line that are gas pressurized, Plastic barrels, and not refillable at about $5.00 to the Infinium Series Pens that is warranted to never run out of Ink for a lifetime at about $150.00. Of course, there are many series in between so you are sure to find the pen that fits your needs and style. All of this brings me ask the question, “Sure you could buy another pen, but why would you?” Fisher refills come with an adapter to fit them to Parker and Parker Style ballpoint pens. Fisher also makes pressurized refills to fit Cross style pens. See the Fisher line by visiting our eBay store.
