Following the successful 2010 Pen World Reader's Choice Award Nominee RR1, Conway Stewart is pleased to continue the working partnership with MetalWrite -- a respected company known world-wide for their custom made pens incorporating the use of hand turned Damascus Steel.
"RR2" is an evolution of its sold-out predecessor RR1, incorporating a new and exclusive hand engraving design on the solid sterling silver cap, barrel and clip in addition to a different finish of custom made Damascus Steel stoppers.
The new pattern departs from RR1 with an asymmetric component. The guilloché is applied to the barrel and cap by hand cranking a Neuweiler and Engelsberger straight line engine turning machine. Clips are cut out of a sheet of 1.5mm Argentium, hand engraved and then bent into shape. The Damascus steel stoppers are turned from Damascus steel made by Robert Eggerling. The cap/barrel/nib/section are made by Conway Stewart.
RR2 is not a writing instrument for the weak at hand. It is solid Sterling/Damascus weighing in at 87 gms and is 140 mm long capped with a 15 mm diameter. RR2 provides the same flexibility as RR1 - the clip is removable so RR2 can be used a pocket (with clip) or desk (without clip) pen. The MetalWrite RR2 is limited to 18 pieces and offered as a Fountain Pen and Roller Ball writing mode. Each pen is packaged with both writing mode front sections crafted from solid sterling silver to satisfy the demand for every writing style. The Fountain Pen is mounted with an 18 carat solid gold nib available in eight grades: Extra Fine to Extra Broad, Italic Fine, Italic Medium and Italic Broad. Accessories with RR2 include a polishing cloth and a travel case.
