Kilk Celestial Fountain Pen - Purple

Description

In traditional Turkish art, geometrical patterns often represent heavenly bodies and celestial order. For the 'Celestial' special edition fountain pen, skilled artisans at Kilk Writing Instruments crafted these intricate patterns on casted 925k sterling silver. On the cap finial top, the 'Charkifelek' pattern is also known as the 'Wheel of Fortune.' The 12-cornered pattern on the silver band (dodecagon) refers to the complex order of the astronomic zodiac.

The Kilk 'Celestial' special edition fountain pen pairs chatoyant, royal pearl acrylic resin in the cap and grip section with the ivory white of the tapered barrel. The aged, matte sterling silver metal appointments are made of a special alloy and hardened for durability. The #6 size stainless steel nib (from Bock, Germany) is fine-tuned to ensure a quality writing experience. The pen includes an international, threaded ink converter and may also accept international ink cartridges (sold separately).

Each Kilk writing instrument is packaged in a gift box with a magnetic flap and foam cut-out interior. Use the included polishing cloth to clean the sterling silver band.

Simply gorgeous!

It's quite stunning when you finally hold it in your hand. I got it with Bold nib. It so smooth, & delicious. Couldn't stop writing, it is such a joy! I put Noodler's North African Violet. Get one, & fall in Love!! Galen, as usual, packages it expertly. Highly recommended!!

Kilk Celestial

I actually didn’t receive the “Blue” version. I was mistakenly sent the “Black and Blue” version. I kept it as it’s attractive and I didn’t care to go through the process of reshipping. The performance is the same no matter the color and I can say the pen performs beautifully. The Bock Medium nib is very smooth and the ink flow excellent (I’ve been using Monteverde ink). The weighting capped or uncapped (what I prefer) is nicely balanced. The overall construction and fitting of the pen is flawless. I’d highly recommend it.

This instrument is absolutely beautiful. It has nice heft, lovely metal scrollwork, and some of my very favorite colors. I feel so lucky to have it in my collection.

Just expected

Since I have other Kilk pens, I am familiar with the quality. The steel BB nib is so smooth and a pleasure for writing. I could not be happier.
