Our modern take on the classic executive pen, this piece features a barrel sculpted and hand-finished from solid woven carbon fiber. The beautiful pattern of the carbon fiber is flanked by brass spacers with deep grooves for a secure grip, and the tip and top section are crafted from stainless steel with art deco details. The writing tip is revealed thru our top-twist mechanism, and features a top quality refill cartridge from Germany for smooth writing. Available with a clip, or with our lanyard in braided leather and sterling silver.
Carbon fiber is a material consisting of microscopic fibers composed mostly of carbon atoms. The carbon atoms are bonded together in crystals that are more or less aligned parallel to the long axis of the fiber. The crystal alignment gives the fiber high strength-to-volume ratio. Several thousand carbon fibers are bundled together to form a tow, which may be used by itself or woven into a fabric.
Carbon fiber's properties, such as high stiffness, high tensile strength, low weight, high chemical resistance, high temperature tolerance, make them very popular in aerospace, civil engineering, military, competition sports. William Henry uses the highest grade, and beautifully textured carbon fiber for its collections of jewelry, knives, money clips and cufflinks.
