Product Description

Each pen has 18K gold-plated brass fittings and a grip section that is layered in .999 platinum. This fountain pen is fitted with a fine-point silky smooth stainless steel nib.

Mother of pearl is not only beautiful—it’s also known as one of the most durable natural materials. Xezo uses a grade of nacre (mother of pearl) with a hardness of 4.5 on the Mohs scale. For comparison, a fingernail has a hardness of 2.5, a knife’s steel blade has a hardness of 5.5, and copper or brass have a hardness of 3. We use this toughest grade of mother of pearl in our luxury pens because we believe that the best gift is one that represents enduring love and care. Since the mother of pearl we use is a natural material, every panel is unique, and some variations in the colors and textures in these pens may occur, helping make your pen one of a kind.

Xezo's Maestro writing instruments collection is fit for royalty, inspired by the pens created by Nicolas Bion, the royal instrument craftsman to King Louis XIV in France, and one of the earliest known European fountain pen artisans.

While Xezo could have produced pens with short-cut panels of mother of pearl, we felt that this wouldn't fully capture the natural beauty of the nacre. Our design team knew that producing an entire pen from single-cut long panels of saltwater mother of pearl would create the luxurious aesthetic that we strive for. However, the process to produce such a pen is difficult to achieve.

At first, it seemed that the obstacles might be too great to achieve our goal: sourcing the longest saltwater white mother of pearl available, cultivating the technical skills to carefully cut each panel in an ideal straight line, affixing each panel securely onto the barrel, and then hand-polishing each barrel to ensure a perfectly round and silky smooth surface. However, our design team worked tirelessly from 2018 to 2020 to overcome these technical challenges, until we were able to produce first batch of 700 fountain pens and 400 rollerball pens.

  • Important Product Information

    • Avoid storing your fountain pen upside down (with the nib pointing down). You could damage your nib and cause ink to pool or leak in the cap. It is best to store your fountain pen with the nib pointing up or horizontally.
    • Our fine size nibs have a tolerance range due to the milling process. Therefore, upon customer request, we can select the equivalent of an extra fine nib (line width of ~0.3mm) from our fine nib stock, although the nib will be marked as “F” and not “EF”.
