- Renaissance Wax (yes, only the best) has been sparingly applied to the surface to protect and preserve the hard rubber surfaces. Renaissance Wax is used by professional vintage pen restorers and other esteemed institutions such as the British Museum. It is great for protecting metal from oxidation and for protecting surfaces that often come into contact with hands. This wax will not stain or discolor with aging. It is 1. acid neutral; 2. water resistant; and 3. alcohol resistant. The Renaissance Wax will preserve the color of the hard rubber and protect it from color loss.
- The nib has been adjusted for smoothness and flow.
- The pen has been fully disassembled, cleaned, and has been conservatively polished.
I only ship my pens in very durable telescopic pen packaging tubes (that are reusable too so please keep them). The pen is held in place in the tube with foam inserts. In the shipping box the pen tube is wrapped in bubble wrap and secured in place with packing peanuts.
In the US I will be shipping the pens in a Priority Mail Small Flat Rate box (2-3 Business Days) for FREE.
To International buyers: For overseas shipping I will send your pen in a USPS Priority Mail International Flat Rate® box (6-10 Business Days). This is better than First Class Mail.
