Rhodium has a lot of benefits in terms of functions such as its level of hardness, which is resistant to scratches and guarantees durability and brilliance for a long time. To appreciate these factors, a use of rhodium is very suitable for a fountain pen.
The “Black Diamond” was made particular in a texture of the barrel, incorporating a factor as jewelry to make it suitable as a writing instrument for adults. A black diamond is applied as a motif providing a unique black deep translucent barrel. At a glance, it appears to be a shiny black barrel. However, a transparent material is used in a barrel, so inside the barrel is seen through in the degree of light creating a mysterious image of a black diamond.
The innovative cap contains a unique “Slip & Seal mechanism” that prevents ink from drying out in the pen with a complete airtightness thereby allowing those who only use the pen once or twice a year to write with fresh new ink. Meanwhile, a newly redesigned nib and feed regulate the ink flow. The ink will not dry out even if left for over a year. An added benefit is improved resistance to leaks due to pressure changes.
