This DayDreamer model is made from dyed, stabilised curly maple, featuring a range of colours including blue, red, orange and yellow. The process involves using pressure and/or vacuum to impregnate the wood's cellular structure with resin to improve the stability of the wood. The dye is introduced at the same time.
A matching "Turkish Delight" cellulose acetate is used for the threads, section and barrel finial. The cap is fully lined and the finial houses a solid sterling silver and red logo coin.
The pen is coated with melamine and buffed with a hard wax. This provides a hard-wearing satin finish which, unlike lacquers, allows for a more natural finish. Whilst feeling entirely smooth to the touch, the various natural features and characteristics of the wood are visible.
It is shown fitted with a Schmidt no6 steel nib.
The 1315 is a wider sized pen with a step between the 13mm cap threads and the remainder of the tapered barrel which is 15mm in diameter at the widest point. The grip section is slightly pinched to ≈11.5mm diameter at its narrowest point.
The cap tapers towards the end. As these pens are all hand made there may be small variations on measurements.
Length - Capped ≈ 140mm, uncapped ≈ 134mm
It is provided with a high quality Beaufort Ink international standard sized converter. Standard ink cartridges can also be used.
