Unique Steam Punk "knock pen" by Japanese knife maker Hidetoshi Nakayama. I commissioned this custom all brass version of his Steam Punk design in 2017. To my knowledge, it is the only all brass version "Hide" has ever produced. This is design number "Pen012" in his line of writing instruments.
The design has an industrial kind of look to it, featuring a powerful steel spring set on the exterior of the barrel that retracts the plunger rod for the cartridge back into the barrel.
Length retracted: 6 inches (approx.)
Length Cartridge Point Exposed: 5.5 inches (approx.)
Width Outside of Barrel Guides to Tip of Retraction Lever: 1.25 inches (approx.)
Weight: 3.2 oz.
Ink Cartridge: Parker Style
Makers Mark: On barrel below release block.
Fasteners and springs are steel.
Condition: Never carried or used other than initial function testing. Has been a part of my collection and stored in a display. Has developed a little patina here and there on the brass parts. Probably would develop more patina if used. All original boxes and certification document from Hidetoshi are included.
