Newton for Chatterley Knickerbocker 139 Oversized in G10/Micarta Orange/Black Limited Edition Fountain Pen.
The Chatterley and Newton Pens G10 Knickerbocker “139” Limited Edition. A limited edition of only 6 pens made with Orange G10 and Black Micarta. And this is the last of the our G10 Sadly. They are available with 14k yellow Gold nibs. The nibs are oversized #8 nibs with Key Hole breathers and Ebonite Feeds.
The 14k Gold nib options are Extra Fine, Fine, Medium, Broad, Architect Grind and Stub.
These pens are hand turned and sculpted by Shawn Newton. The clip and ring are hand crafted by Shawn out of Solid Bronze.
G10 is a Fiberglass Composite similar to Carbon Fiber or Micarta in that its an epoxy resin laminate. But how its different is it uses Glass Fibers, where the other two do not.
Micarta is an epoxy resin laminate. Similar to a Carbon Fiber or G10 material, but that Micarta can use cloth instead of Glass (g10). The Material has been purposely un-polished to give it a great look and textured feel. (except for the section) It has a grained look almost like wood or an arco style celluloid.
Like all composites, there is always a possibility of staining. If you worry about this, I always suggest filling the pen via the Converter instead of from the section/nib.
Each pen comes with a Newton pouch and mug. (below is a picture of the first all G10 version, but just shown here to show the mug)
Here is a picture of the manufacturing process where Shawn creates these works of art. (these are pictures of when he made the prospectors, but the process is similar)
