Pen Models

The Rockster

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, a solid sterling silver logo finial coin 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: £195

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

Sterling Silver Section Ring + £10

DayDreamer

Daydreamer

DayDreamer

The DayDreamer shares the same length dimensions as the TroubleShooter but has a little more girth due to the 1mm step between the cap threads and the rest of the barrel. In the case of the 1315 model the threads are 13mm diameter and the barrel diameter is 15mm at its widest point. Both barrel and cap taper but this pen cannot be posted.

It features a sterling silver logo coin as standard.

Length capped: ≈141mm

Length uncapped: ≈134mm

Cap Threads: 13mm

Barrel Diameter: ≈15.2mm

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

DayDreamer Hex

DayDreamer Hex

As the name suggests the DayDreamer Hex is a six sided version of the model. The carefully milled, polished facets capture the light rather like a cut diamond. There is an additional interest to the aesthetic of this model as both the barrel and cap gradually paper form the hexagonal shape to cylindrical ends.

The standard model comes with sterling silver accent rings at the section and the cap finial.

This model does not post.

Length capped: ≈141mm

Length uncapped: ≈134mm

Cap Threads: 13mm

Barrel Diameter: ≈15.2mm

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

Wooden DayDreamer

Wooden DayDreamer

DayDreamer

Not Available as Commission.

This wooden version of the Daydreamer shares the same dimensions as the standard model. Both barrel and cap are fully lined to prevent the nib drying out and any internal leaks damaging the wood. It tapers slightly towards each end.

The wood used is typically stabilised and often dyed but occasionally un-stabilised wood is used.

The wood is buffed to a satin finish whilst the finials and rings are highly polished.

It features a sterling silver logo coin as standard.

Length capped: ≈141mm

Length uncapped: ≈134mm

Cap Threads: 13mm

Barrel Diameter: ≈15mm

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

Sterling Silver Logo Coin: Included

Price: Starts at £225

Hedonist

hedonist

The Hedonist is a smooth profile pen with the cap twisting onto the end, covering only the nib, rather than covering the entire section.

This means there is no step on the pen, and the section has a hint of a waist to allow a comfortable grip.

The barrel is slightly tapered and the cap has a sterling silver logo coin at the finial.

Dimensions will vary based on the materials and nib used, with options of either a no5 or no6 Bock.

Length capped: ≈ 138mm

Length uncapped: ≈ 133mm

Barrel Diameter: ≈ 12mm/13mm

Postable: No

Step: None

Sterling Silver Logo Coin: Included

Sterling Silver Section Ring + £10

Because this pen is "smooth"... When capped this model has no step between the barrel and the cap and has no taper towards the ends of the cap and barrel. It does have a small step between the threads and the main body. Standard model is 1315.

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.

Length capped: ≈140mm

Length uncapped: ≈131mm

Barrel Diameter: ≈14mm

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.

Sterling Silver Section Ring + £10

Price: Starts at £185

*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, Jowo or Schmidt nibs unless otherwise stated, (see the individual descriptions), but there are numerous options of finish and nib width.

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.
