♦ The Model 33 Abditus is a particularly unique design, whereby the barrel is completely hidden in the cap. Abditus - Latin for "hidden," or "secret," has turned heads at trade shows around the globe. We are also proud to announce that the Model 33 is the winner of the 2012 PenWorld Reader's Choice Award for Distinctive Writer.
♦ The 33 is made from solid bars of acrylic, machined in our shop with great care. The original version comes with traditional coloration of mostly black, creme' bands on the barrel and cap, with cinnamaroon finials on each end. The new versions come in all black, with either cinnamaroon or king's gold bands.
♦ Not only an interesting design, great piece for a collection, and a wonderful conversation piece - the 33 is also a very functional fountain pen. Offered with our HP Steel, or 18K nibs, you can expect to experience flawless writing, in the nib tip of your choice, whether a smooth factory EF, F, M, or B, or a wonderful customized specialty nib choice of N, FI, MI, MS, BI, BS by Japanese nib master Michael Masuyama. Also a good match for the 33 is our exclusive HPS 1.9 Christoph nib with two slits (music) in either polished or shadow versions.
♦ The 33 measures 5.70" from end to end while capped, with a .65" cap diameter. The pen barrel itself measures 4.05" from top to the end of the acrylic then + nib. The pen barrel diameter is .445" at the grip and .475 where it meats the finial. Comfortable to hold, lightweight and balanced.
♦ The weight of the pen without the cap, including a converter and nib but no ink is .5oz or 14.71 grams. The total weight of the pen and cap together is 1.2oz or 34.02 grams.
♦ Cartridge/Converter filled (one of each included) for using disposable carts or an ink bottle. We do not recommend using this one as an eye dropper due to the creme' band which may darken.
♦ Lifetime Warranty / 30 Day Money Back Guarantee.
♦ In lieu of a traditional gift box we now ship with a maroon leather zippered pouch with an outer white thin box. If you'd prefer a traditional gift box, please let us know at the time of order.
