● Basic details

▶ #3776 Century Custom (Eureka Symmetry) (M nib)

 This fountain pen is hand made by "the Fountainpen Researcher"

    (All parts handmade by one person, except the nib & ink converter)

 Ebonite grip, barrel, cap, and feed:

thick unibody structure, designed to be crackproof for decades.

designed to achieve maximum durabiliy, while suppressing clunkiness.

 platinum 14K gold nib 

 nib length (outside): 24 mm , nib weight: 0.65~0.7g

pen weight: 27~28g ,pen length: 150~155mm (capped), 145mm (uncapped)

 5x ink converters, polishing cloth, velvet pen pouch, urushi wood penrest, 3 slotted penrest included

 origin of materials: ebonite(Japan), urushi(Japan), silver(S.Korea)

 urushi dry time: 1+ months

 As time passes, the urushi colors will become more vivid

(It takes 6~12 months for urushi to achieve maximum hardness. Do not expose the urushi to strong shock / abrasion prior to the maximum hardness. Urushi cannot be scratched by fingernail when dried for 1 week ~ 1 month.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

● additional details

 I do additional work on the nib with my own technique:

nib point grinding (to make it write smoother), nib surface polishing, nib ink flow adjustment, nib tine adjustment

 the ebonite feed has greater ink flow than the original plastic feed,

also more resistant to drying when the cap is open.

 cap: internal teflon grip protector, which prevents micro scratches that occur @ frontal grip section, when opening and closing the cap, over the years.

 ink reservoir: converter (replaceable), eyedropper (silicone sealing required)

 the engravings are done after the urushi layers are accumulated.

the engraving depth is very deep, which reaches all the way down to the surface of the ebonite.

after that, silver urushi (silver 99.9%) is used to fill the engravings all the way to the top.

after proper drying time, surface grinding + micro grinding + polishing is done.

● Eureka silver urushi inlay technique:

after proper thickness of urushi layer is applied, a precision engraving is done.

the engraving depth reaches all the way to the ebonite surface.

after engraving, silver urushi (silver 99.9%) is filled in, sufficiently above the engravings.

when the silver urushi is properly cured, a precision grinding is done to reveal the engravings.

afterwards, additional urushi layers are apllied or polishing procedure is done.

 

the eureka silver urushi inlay technique is different from chinkin in following aspects:

-the engraving is deeper than chinkin

-the surface finish of the silver urushi inlay is smooth. chinkin surface finish has grooves that can be felt.

-urushi filling procedure and grinding/polishing process is more complicated than chinkin.

-thickness of the urushi filling is thicker than chinkin

-better durability. chinkin engraving's edge(weak point) can fracture upon shock (see picture below)

 

picture below shows the difference between:

eureka silver urushi inlay, makie, chinkin

 

 

● Eureka Ebonite feed, Precisely Cut from a solid ebonite rod.

-good ink flow

-excellent overflow control & overall stability

-excellent fitting with the nib, using heat setting process

-maximum strength design to prevent breakage
