The Rockster is my signature pen. It is a TroubleShooter 1313 made from Black Tortoise Cellulose Acetate, making it feel warm and soft to the touch in the way only real cellulose acetate can.
This pen has a black and translucent pattern and the inside is polished just enough to remove any tool marks but is left with a semi-clear, cloudy effect which produces a grey tone to compliment the black.
The pen is based on our dog Rocky, a silver and black miniature schnauzer. The red section accent ring, which I add to many of my pens, represents the red collar that he has always worn since he was a pup. “The Rockster” is how he is affectionately known within the family, and it’s where the name “Rockster Pens” comes from. That’s him in the last picture (and no, he doesn’t come with the pen).
It is shown fitted with a Bock No6 black nib and this is the only option available with this model.
The 1313 is a medium sized pen with no step between the 13mm cap threads and the remainder of the barrel. The grip section is slightly pinched to ≈11mm diameter at its narrowest point. As these pens are all hand made there may be small variations on measurements.
Length - Capped ≈ 139mm, uncapped ≈ 134mm
It is provided with a high quality Beaufort Ink international standard sized converter. Standard ink cartridges can also be used.
