The Naos was inspired by the Brutalist architectural style pioneered in the 1950’s by famous architect Le Corbusier. It favoured rough textures such as raw concrete and large minimalist forms to create buildings imposing sense of scale and utilitarian feel.
The largest pen in our collection, the Naos’s body is composed a of simple cylindrical cap adjoined to an octagonal barrel, and uses bronze's natural patina and machined finishes to create contrasting textures with an industrial aesthetic.
Every single component apart from the nib is precision-machined from solid bars of bronze.
This fountain pen uses a large Bock 250 (#6) stainless steel nib made in Germany for the smoothest writing experience. Titanium nibs can be ordered separately and can be installed easily without the use of tools.
A clip is available for this pen as an optional extra. It is easily removable without tools by unscrewing the top finial.
Weight Capped/Uncapped: 80g/52g.
Length Open/Closed - 143mm/128mm
This pen does not have a postable cap but is designed to be balanced and long enough for comfortable writing without the need to post.
Can be used with any standard international cartridge, long or short format.
Please note that bronze will darken with age and form a patina over time. Some signs of patina may already be visible when you receive your pen. Bronze is a very heavy material so please take into account that this pen is a true heavyweight!
