Patinated Faceted Brass and Copper "Pocket Six" Fountain Pens
This variant is currently sold out
- Weights + Technical Details
This Special Edition pen release is a collaboration with Dana DiPlacido, a Massachusetts based artist/fabricator/craftsperson who has perfected accelerated patination of metal. His work is stunning and will be offered for a limited time atop these faceted brass and copper pens. Note: Each pen is slightly different as they are all hand patinated.

The "Pocket Six" is the first fountain pen offering from Schon DSGN. A compact cartridge fountain pen, it is designed for everyday use. Like the Classic Schon DSGN pens, these pens are compact when capped but offer a nice full sized fountain pen experience when the cap is posted on the back of the pen. The name "Pocket Six" comes from the fact that this pocket pen houses a #6 sized nib, which is a full sized nib, rather than the smaller #5 commonly found in pocket size fountain pens.
These pens are made from brass and will change and patina over time, darkening the metal and aging them. Eventually the patina will stabilize and the color will stay a consistent aged brass look which is quite beautiful. Brass and Copper are my favorite materials due to this patina effect.
Each pen comes with a #6 Jowo nib. These nib units can unscrew and be swapped for another Jowo #6 nib. Please be careful and leave this process to a nib smith if you are uncomfortable with it. Bock grip sections are available in the "spare parts" section of the site, but I no longer offer Bock nibs.
Rollerball grip sections and tips are available if you want the pocket six but in a rollerball style.
Pens use standard short international cartridges regardless of if they are fountain or rollerball. Each pen comes with one box of cartridges: three black, one blue, and two empty (for syringe filling) cartridges.
Each material has a different weight and feel:
Polished Brass Pen -1.40oz
The pen is ½ an inch (12.7mm) in diameter and 3.55” (90.2mm) long when capped. When the cap is posted on the back it is a full 5.2” (132mm) long.
The pens are machined in my Philadelphia workshop and the nibs are from Germany. The Bodies, Cap and Sections are 100% made in the USA.
