** This is a modified version of our Model 40 Panther, with a single piece cap instead of the four piece cap with a band and finial. This is reflected in the price, at $185 starting, rather than the $225 starting market price for most Panthers.
This design features a subtle grey in a base black acrylic for the cap and section, combined with an antiqued light grey barrel. All in this edition have no clip.
The Panther is one of our oldest designs and one of our rarest production, only produced a few times a year.
The 40 Panther is a long capped pen - 5.5" when capped. There is a center taper in the barrel, so the length is only 6.5" (to the nib tip) when the cap is posted on the barrel. The cap diameter is 5/8".
The barrel diameter is 9/16" at the thickest point and tapers down to 15/32" at the smallest point.
Clipped pen weight without ink .741oz/21.01g
Unclipped pen weight without ink .649oz/18.41g
The barrel holds approximately 2.8ml of ink when eyedroppered.
Shipped with a Franklin-Christoph single pen zippered pouch.
