GW GemPen Lapis Lazuli
Designer: GW Pens
This design was nominated as a 2018 Pen World Magazine Reader’s Choice Award for Best Artisan Pen.
The Lapis Lazuli version of the GW GemPen has been the most widely requested gemstone to be used in this series. The pen material is acrylic acetate with a section made of the incredibly warm resin juma. Although the pen body has a taper and can post, this is really for aesthetics. The pen has better center of balance without the cap posted.
The cap features the namesake of the piece, a rollstop made from a highly polished Lapis Lazuli gemstone cabochon set in fine silver. The centerband at the base of the cap is .925 sterling silver. Included is a professional grade jewelry polishing cloth to keep everything looking like new.
Most importantly is the nib. Each pen uses a JoWo #6 nib in your choice of finish and tip size (please let me know your preference during checkout) that has been tuned to write perfectly from the start. The pen dimensions are:
Total Weight: 22 grams
Total Length: 148 mm
Cap Length: 63 mm
Body Length: 135 mm tip to tail
Grip Section Thickness: 10mm
The available nib choices, in both polished steel or black oxide, are:
- Extra Fine
- 1.1 Italic
- 1.5 Italic
Made to order, please allow 3-4 weeks for work on your pen to begin. Once started, it will be ready within the week.
If shipped to a NJ address sales tax will be added. Each pen will ship in a GW Pens pen box.
