There are makers who can produce pens with short-cut pieces of mother of pearl. However, we believe that the hard-to-achieve aesthetics of single-cut long panels of saltwater mother of pearl create a stunning effect that is worth all of the work it involves.
It was very challenging for our design team to find a solution on how to produce an entire pen from these single-cut long panels of mother of pearl. Not only was the cost of sourcing the longest saltwater white mother of pearl available a serious issue, but also the technical skill involved with carefully cutting each panel in an ideal straight line, cementing each panel on the barrel, and then polishing each barrel to ensure an ideally round object was the greatest obstacle of all ( see the video/images).
However, we believed that it was still possible to overcome these obstacles. The inspiration for this was the example of the pen that was made in France by Nicolas Bion, the royal instrument craftsman to French King Louis XV and one of the earliest known European fountain pen artisans (see the image).
In 2018 Xezo embarked on this project, but it wasn't until 2020 that we were able to overcome technical issues and produce the first batch of 700 fountain pens and 400 rollerball pens. Each of these very unique pens are serialized and entirely handmade from single-cut panels of saltwater origin white mother of pearl. The mother of pearl we use is a natural material, and every panel is unique. Due to this, some distinctions in the colors and textures in these pens may occur, helping make your pen one of a kind.
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 0.6 mm medium-point silky smooth stainless steel nib. A fine nib can be requested for exchange from the official Xezo website.
We truly hope that this pen will be a reflection of the connoisseur’s taste of its owner.
