This compact brass fountain pen is designed and made in Tokyo. The pen has a steel nib and takes international standard ink cartridges. When capped, the pen is 9.5 cm. When in use, the cap becomes the barrel and the pen measures 13.5cm. The pen is supplied with a medium nib, and has a removable clip and handy ring on the end of the cap so it can be fixed to a key chain. A patina will develop on the brass barrel with use.
