Solid Brass and Faceted Brass "Pocket Six" Fountain Pens

- Weights + Technical Details
The "Pocket Six" is the first fountain pen offering from Schon DSGN. A compact cartridge fountain pen designed for everyday use. Like the Classic Schon DSGN pens, these pens are compact when capped but 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 and not a 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 #6 Bock nib, #6 Jowo nib or a Rollerball tip.
Which nib brand should you chose? Some customers have a preference based on pens that they already own or perhaps they have had a nib custom ground for their writing preference that they will want to install into the pen. Both are great choices. I find that the Jowo Extra Fine is a tad finer than the Bock and the Bock writes a bit smoother than the stock Jowo at times, but rest assured we test each pen nib here so you should get a great writing pen regardless!
Pens use standard short international cartridges regardless of if they are fountain or rollerball. Each pen comes with one cartridge. The color is random! Fun!
Each material has a different weight and feel:
Black or Multi-Color Anodized Aluminum Pens- 0.50oz
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.
