Anodized Aluminum and Multicolor "Pocket Six" Fountain Pens
This variant is currently sold out
- 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.
Each multi-color pen is a limited edition run and when they sell out they are gone. Ill be making some new colors in the coming months and will be adding some solid colors to the permanent collection. Check out my Instagram for the latest releases.
Each pen comes with #6 Bock nib or #6 Jowo nib.
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!
These pens can be equipped with a variety of grip colors/materials/types and shapes. Some of these grip sections choices come in both Jowo and Bock nibs, some I have made for only Jowo and some are even for Rollerballs! Each has a unique inside geometry based on the nib brand. These sections can be easily swapped in the pen by screwing them in and out. Additional grip sections can be purchased here. Note: not all section choices are shown in the photos, so please review the look of them before purchasing!
Pens use standard short international cartridges. 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.
