Thanks very much for looking at our listing for this extremely rare Hakase RW10B Rosewood Fountain Pen, which comes with its wooden presentation box. The pen has barely been used and is presented in wonderful condition – there is an incredibly faint mark on the clip (shown in the photos), but this is only visible in certain lights.
Hakase require no introduction and if you’ve got this far then likely you’ll be familiar with their wonderful writing instruments. Renowned for their exceptional pens that have extremely long lead-times – this model is currently approximately 16 months from the date it’s ordered with Hakase.
Based in the Tottori prefecture of Japan, Ryo Yamamoto is the third-generation artisan to lead the company. This is the RW10B model, with the barrel and cap being crafted from glorious rose wood, the section is black and red ebonite.
The pen is fitted with a 14k stub (it was specified as a broad stub, so similar to a Western M stub) nib and it’s a cartridge / converter pen, so your choice here is bottled ink.
The important details are as follows…
With every pen that we sell we provide a card that includes the manufacturer, model, serial / limitation number and date it was purchased from us. We do this because our customers like to have documentation showing that it’s been purchased from a trusted seller. As the Financial Times said recently in their How To Spend It publication – “izods is an e-cache of ultra fine fountain pens”.
