The Drake fountain pen is fashioned from
a solid rod of sterling silver. Guilloche engraving is used to
create a gently flowing wave pattern on the cap and barrel, set
off with highly polished cap top, cap band, and barrel end.
The solid sterling silver section leaves
the weight centred low in the hand, ensuring that the pen is balanced
well when writing. Each pen is engraved with the name Drake on
the cap band, and a likeness of The Golden Hind on the cap top.
The Conway Stewart Drake bears the English Sterling Silver Hallmark,
the world accepted standard for precious metal.
The Drake fountain pen is mounted with
our large 18 carat solid gold nib, rhodium plated to match the
sterling silver cap and barrel. The nib is available in eight
nib grades, form Extra Fine to Double Broad, Italic Fine, Italic
Medium and Italic Broad. The Drake utilises the reliable converter
cartridge filling mechanism.
