Puzzler Zirconium Pen
The Puzzler is a pen crafted from
a solid billet of zirconium. Zirconium is a metal much like
titanium, and has the unique property of allowing a black ceramic
surface to be applied. It is a slick and inert surface that
reminds you of Hematite and is used in artificial knees! The
front barrel of the pen has the option of spirals for enhanced grip
or a more subtle hatch pattern. The clip is also carved from
a solid bar and machined to the shape of the puzzle pieces that
correspond to the ones below it. Note that each piece is
unique, so the clip had to match one specific orientation and
position. The clip is laser welded in place. The pattern on the cap and
body perfectly align when the cap is replaced in either of the two thread
engagements. The cap engages quickly and smoothly, and
utilizes my own thread specification. The German nib is 18k gold and iridium and is smooth as silk.
It can be oriented to match the pattern on the body.
It comes with an ink pump and cartridges for your choice of
Also available is a roller ball option. I am the originator of the puzzle pen
concept that has been copied into wood kit form. There is no
kit in this pen! This is a very unique pen, and I had to
develop the techniques used to make it.
