Handmade by Hordern Richmond.
Presenting the Crown Jewel of our Collection, Handcrafted by Hordern Richmond.
Prepare to be captivated by the epitome of elegance with our Fountain Pen, painstakingly crafted from a segment of retired WWII Spitfire propeller blades, sourced directly from our illustrious propeller workshop. Each fountain pen proudly bears the serial number of the original propeller blade from which it was meticulously fashioned, infusing it with a unique historical charm.
Our Fountain Pen arrives in a bespoke English oak box, featuring a smoothly gliding lid, making it an ideal gift for those with discerning tastes.
This extraordinary fountain pen pays homage to Hordern Richmond's pioneering spirit in the 1930s when they introduced the revolutionary hydulignum material, a fusion of fine birch veneers and resin. This innovative blend resulted in a remarkably strong yet lightweight material, perfect for crafting propeller blades. The pen's metallic components are expertly machined from stainless steel right here in England, boasting a refined brushed finish that exudes sophistication. To add the perfect finishing touch, the pen features a gold-plated medium nib.
Beyond its functionality, this Fountain Pen is a testament to precision engineering and aviation heritage. The engraved serial number on the barrel connects you directly to the original Spitfire propeller blade, a unique piece of history. Handmade by Hordern Richmond, it's not just a writing instrument; it's an heirloom that will be cherished for generations to come.
