Pen Models

The Rockster

The Rockster is my signature pen. It is a TroubleShooter 1313, (see below), and comes in beautiful black tortoiseshell cellulose acetate making it feel warm and soft to the touch in the way only real cellulose acetate can.

It features a red accent ring at the section and a Bock black nib.

The only decision you have to make is what size nib you’d like (EF, F, M or B).

 

Price: £145

TroubleShooter 

This is my "go to" pen shape, a pen for all seasons. The lack of a step between the section and barrel gives it a clean look and feel and is perfect for "high grippers". It has a tapered barrel allowing the cap to be posted* onto the end. The standard size is a mid-size 1313 but other options are available.

Length capped: ≈141mm

Length uncapped: ≈134mm

Cap Threads: 13mm

Postable: Yes* (The cap can be mounted on the end of the barrel)

Step: None

Options

Cap Threads 14mm: No charge

14k/18k Gold or 23k Palladium Nib Upgrade: + £160 

Price: Starts at £135

BigShot

Big Shot

BigShot

The BigShot is a pen that has no step but does have a wider barrel, offering the best of both worlds for those who like a more robust feeling writing instrument yet prefer seamless lines. The barrel tapers out from the 13mm threads to a generous 15mm near the centre and then slims down again towards the end, (referred to as a "hip-swing" by one pen aficionado).  Due to the design of this pen it is suitable for most hand sizes.

Length capped: ≈145mm

Length uncapped: ≈140mm

Cap Threads: 13mm

Barrel Diameter: ≈15.mm

Postable: No (The cap cannot be mounted on the end of the barrel)

Step: None

DayDreamer

DayDreamer

DayDreamer

This pen can be thought of a troubleshooter with a step on the barrel, which offers more width to the barrel of the pen. The 1315 version has 13mm cap threads and a 1mm step to take the barrel diameter to 15mm. Both barrel and cap taper but this pen cannot be posted.

Length capped: ≈141mm

TroubleShooter Fusion

 TroubleShooter Fusion

Using vintage (1930s-40s) cellulose acetate as the main material, combined with modern resins, the Fusion is a pen for todays world with a nod to the past. The cellulose forms the main part of the barrel of this TroubleShooter and is carried through to the section allowing the writer to feel the warm, soft qualities synonymous with this beautiful material when using the pen. This requires significantly more work to achieve but it is worth it for the enhanced writing experience.

Length capped: ≈141mm

Length uncapped: ≈134mm

Cap Threads: 13mm

Postable: Yes* (The cap can be mounted on the end of the barrel)

Step: None

Jobsworth

Jobsworth

If a job's worth doing... This "cigar style" pen has rounded ends to the cap and barrel. This shape is pleasing on the eye and very tactile in the hand with a somewhat art-deco feel. It has no step between the section and barrel so another good option if you hold the pen higher up. The barrel and cap can be straight or tapered, allowing the option to be posted.

RingLeader

The RingLeader is a larger model in both length and width. The tapered barrel and cap are complimented by the slightly angular ends. There is a  step between the threads and the main body. The cap has a short taper towards the opening which creates a seamless join where it meets the barrel.

A pocket pen.

The “SmallTalker” is, essentially, a smaller version of the SweetTalker model with a flush cap and barrel when closed. The cap and barrel are also flush when posted creating a complete writing instrument that is 140mm long. Fitted with a number 6 nib, (Bock or Jowo options), it takes a single, universal ink cartridge.
It can be all one colour, dual-colour like this example or even a tricolour.

Cap Threads: 13mm

*Rockster pens are made from high quality fine materials which, by their very nature, require care when using. This especially true when posting the cap onto the barrel. The cap is designed to fit snugly with gentle pressure. Never force the cap as this will risk damaging the threads or even splitting the cap

What's with the numbers?

Most Rockster pens have a number along side the model that describes the thickness of the barrel at its slimmest and widest parts. So for example a 1214 pen is 12mm at the section/cap threads, (near where you hold the pen), and 14mm at the widest point of the barrel. In this case there will be a 1mm "step" between the threads and the barrel.

Nibs

Pens are made to take either Bock and/or Jowo nibs unless otherwise stated, (see the individual descriptions), but there are numerous options of finish and nib width. Often, but not always, a pen which has a #6 nib can be supplied with a #5 nib instead, and vice versa.

If you buy a pen directly from the web site then, once you have completed the order, you will be contacted to decide which nib width and finish you would prefer. Most nibs are held in stock but on occasions they may need to be ordered, which will add one or two days to the delivery time.

Ink Feeds

All pens take standard international cartridges and take converters. A high quality international standard Beaufort Ink converter is supplied with each pen.
