This is the first offering of the Model 66 with a Septagonal barrel. We've milled 7 sides into the barrel, and now to the cap, to give the garnet acrylic material a faceted gemstone look, and to increase the ease of placing on a desk where it won't roll. (Some people call this Heptagonal, but we thought it would be fun to blend the Greek and the Latin for a more elegant if less oft used name). $185 market price.
♦ Features our special block threads at the end of the grip section. These smoother feeling threads are out of the way of your fingers. Placing the threads at this spot limits the amount of air within the cap chamber, thereby helping to eliminate dry out. The design of the block threads also releases the air when you unscrew so as to not create a suction effect on the ink.
♦ Each pen can be filled via long or short international cartridge, by converter, or via eye dropper. We recommend a little silicone grease on the threads if you use as an eye dropper. View the video on our How To Videos page on the Info drop down above. Barrel holds approximately 3.5ml of ink when eyedroppered.
