The Hamburg warehouse district is a remarkable place. For a long time, the economic heart of the Hanseatic city beat between the river, canals and brick buildings. Trade pulsated here, goods from all over the world filled the warehouses and the scent of coffee and spices filled the air.
An important piece of Hamburg history, which has begun a new chapter with its development into a modern district. The contrast between the venerable warehouses and the architectural avant-gardism of their new buildings makes the Speicherstadt a successful example of how tradition and innovation can come together to form a harmonious whole.
The ELBWOOD Special Edition Speicherstadt is inspired by this place. The traditional copper of the storage roofs evokes the neighborhood's heritage, while the pure, minimalist form is at home in the present. The design is completed by river blue ebonite. After all, the Elbe has always been there.
Elegant, linear 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 0.5 mm deep furrows are cut into the material using a special knurling cutter and ensure safe 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 nib consists of 18 carat 750 rose gold. They are available in four different nib strengths and nib widths:
EF - Extra Fine / F - Fine / M - Medium / B - Broad< /p>
The LONGCAP fountain pen can be filled with the supplied converter as well as with standard ink cartridges.
Length: 14.5cm / diameter: 13.3mm / weight: approx. 53g
The copper will change over time and with use. It tarnishes and develops the patina so popular with connoisseurs. The ebonite changes its color when exposed to sunlight. If you don't like this, you can polish up your writing instrument at any time. However, this is not a reason for complaint - I consciously choose materials with "stubbornness".
This fountain pen only gets more beautiful with age.
This special edition of the LONGCAP fountain pen made of plain-colored ebonite "blue denim" and copper is limited to 50 pieces. Due to the patina that always develops differently, each piece is unique. Once the edition limit has been reached, this combination of materials will no longer be made.
