The Cap

The Cap


The magnetic cap posts to both ends with a satisfying click. The inlay design plays on the symmetry of the hardware and highlights the olivewood trimmed from ancient groves and salvaged Indonesian teak.

The rollerball Cap is compatible with standard rollerball refills. The fountain pen Cap features a #5 fine, steel, iridium-tipped nib and comes with one short international black ink cartridge and a standard international piston converter.

Bethlehem Olivewood

Throughout Israel there are olive groves that have grown for over 2,000 years. These trees saw Rome come to power and eventually fall. They saw much of Biblical history unfold; and they still stand today to bear witness to the trials faced by the region. These trees are highly protected, those who maintain them gather branch trimmings and deadfall and make them available to tourists and woodworkers. The dense, high contrast grain of Bethlehem olivewood makes it ideal for small woodworking applications, its beauty and history are equally incredible.

Salvaged Indonesian Teak

Too many woodlands are diminished as the result of deforestation. One contributing factor is improper systems of recycling. We source our teak from IndoTeak Design, where it is their prerogative to salvage the highest quality teak without any damage to the environment. By properly utilizing FSC Recycled 100% teak salvaged from Indonesia, their production works as a zero-waste process. This means no trees are cut down as a result of their work. Instead, the wood is saved from 100-300-year-old structures that would have otherwise been demolished. They also support excellent working conditions for their team in Indonesia - each piece is reclaimed by hand and every nail is removed with joy.
