The Americana Fountain Pen
The Americana fountain pen is similar in shape and feel to the ballpoint but with the smooth writing style of a fountain pen. This pen uses a German-made, medium, gold plated, iridium nib, and comes with a black ink cartridge and pump. The ink can be refilled by changing the cartridge or by replacing the cartridge with the pump, allowing the pen to be refilled from an ink bottle.
These handsome pens are made exclusively for the USS Constitution Museum and sold only by the Museum and a few authorized agents. They have become very popular, especially as gifts, and have been extremely well received by our many customers.
The casing of each pen is expertly fashioned by a New England craftsman from wood removed during overhaul. On the barrel of each pen the words "USS Constitution" are engraved next to the clasp. Each pen is boxed as noted and is accompanied by a card noting the provenance of the wood and the workings of each pen. Our pens are fully warranted and we will repair or replace any pen returned to us as defective.
