STERLING SILVER, VINTAGE, & PAUA ABALONE PENS

        SOLID STERLING SILVER          HANDCRAFTED PENS - THE TOSCANA UNO

Looking for the perfect gift?  Something classic, yet outstanding and eye catching?  The Toscana Uno is it.  We have created two pens made from solid sterling silver.  They are handcrafted from .925 Argentium Sterling Silver and will not tarnish as standard sterling silver will.  The perfect combination of a work of art that can be used every day.

The first pen is the Toscana Uno Convertible.  This is a true piece of jewelry that can be used as either a rollerball or as a fountain pen by simply changing the section.  Both sections (rollerball and fountain pen) are made from the same .925 Argentium Sterling Silver.  The rollerball refill is a Schmidt refill and the fountain pen nib is a Bock nib.  The body of the pen is crafted from vintage Casein for that classic look. 

 

The pen comes with a Lifetime Warranty.

VINTAGE BAKELItE

The second pen is the Toscana Uno Bakelite.  The components are the same solid sterling silver as described above.  The only difference is that this is a fountain pen only and cannot be switched to a rollerball.  The body of the pen is a classic Bakelite from the 1920’s, the same as used in the collectible vintage pens from that period.  The pen is equipped with a Bock nib.

 

The pen comes with a Lifetime Warranty.

PAUA ABALONE SHELL

Paua is a species of abalone that is unique to the waters around New Zealand. It is regarded as a gift from the god of the sea and is considered a prized treasure because of its brilliance and beautiful iridescent appearance.  Abalone shell has been used in jewelry making for countless ages.  Each strip of the Paua Abalone Shell is carefully hand-cut and then meticulously applied by hand.

 

These handcrafted pens are unique and rare works of art and are designed with an elegant flair for the discriminating buyer.  Abalone shell is a colorful shell that incorporates the beautiful colors of the sea.

 

These collector grade pens are designed with discriminating collectors in mind and handmade using the highest quality components.  The pens feature elegant, engraved custom hand-carved insets on the cap and barrel ends surrounded by brilliant Gold, Rhodium, and Black Titanium plating.   The stunning blend of insets and accent band combined with Gold, Rhodium and Black Titanium plated components combine to make a distinctive pen of unrivaled beauty. 

 

In the tradition of fine desk pens, both the Imperatore Monte Verde and Capolavoro Monte Nero pens are not designed for use with the cap attached to the pen. This ensures that you will enjoy effortless writing and the perfect balance of the pen every time you use it. Just be sure to leave the pen cap in plain sight where others can see what they're missing!

 

The nib on these custom made fountain pen is German-made and features a two-tone fountain nib with genuine iridium point for smooth writing and dependable ink flow. They come with a J. Herbin ink cartridge.

 

The rollerball version comes standard with a Schmidt rollerball refill available at any fine office supply store.

 

All pens come with our Lifetime Guarantee.

HOW OUR PAUA ABALONE PENS ARE MADE

The following is a pictorial description of how our Paua Abalone pens are made. This process is very labor intensive. Once the abalone is harvested, cleaned and sterilized, the shell is made into inlay sheets as shown in the first photo. Then each strip of abalone is cut by hand and glued to a brass tube.  Once the strips completely cover the tube it is cast in a special aluminite resin under pressure and cured. Each blank is then removed, cut, mounted on the lathe, and individually hand turned - one at a time, sanded, polished, buffed and waxed (16-step process), and finally assembled by hand, again one at a time.
