LONGCAP fountain pen, unique piece made of royal wood & brass, handmade

$1,387

Single piece:

LONGCAP, elegant hand-made fountain pen made of wood. Royal wood with sapwood and solid brass. All parts of the fountain pen are made of solid brass. Also the recessed mechanism with the three-speed thread, which ensures that the cap can be put on with just one turn. The combination of always lukewarm wood and classic modern brass creates an extraordinary tactile experience.

Elegant, straightforward and noble – the LONGCAP fountain pen meets all the criteria that characterize a luxurious writing instrument. Its minimalist, no-frills design draws attention to the high-quality materials.

The ribbed grip zone on this model is hidden from view under the long cap until it is opened. The 0.5mm deep grooves are cut into the material using a special knurl cutter and ensure secure spring guidance.

The LONGCAP fountain pen is a masterful example of strict, geometric lines. Reduced to the maximum. The perfect collector's item for your desk at home.


The nibs are considered the heart of a fountain pen. The nibs, exclusively embossed with the ELBWOOD logo, are made by JoWo Berliner Schreibfeder GmbH - one of the world's most renowned manufacturers of this rare art.

The writing nib used in this unique piece is made of 18 carat / 750 yellow gold and is available in four nib strengths or nib widths:

EF - Extra Fine  /  F - Fine  /  M - Wedttel   B - Wide



The LONGCAP fountain pen can be filled using the included converter as well as with standard ink cartridges.

Length: 14.5cm / diameter: 12.5mm / weight: approx. 35g


The brass will change over time and with use. It tarnishes and develops the patina that is so popular with connoisseurs. If you don't like this you can polish it up again at any time.

Wood is a natural material that "works". Despite years of storage, small hairline cracks can occur when temperatures or air pressure conditions change significantly. However, this is not a reason for a complaint - I consciously choose materials with “idiosyncrasy”.


This fountain pen becomes more beautiful with age.
