The Franklin-Christoph Model 31 fountain pen is substantial in size (5.5 inches capped) but feels light in the hand, with an acrylic resin body in a swirled chocolate brown finish. It features a screw-on cap with a chrome pocket clip and the company’s traditional beveled finial. Open it to reveal a stainless steel nib, and post it to add more than an inch of length while you write.
Note: At checkout, you’ll have your choice of nib size (Extra-Fine, Fine, Medium, Broad, 1.1mm Stub, or 1.5mm Stub). You can also add a Franklin-Christoph zippered leather pouch (+ $10). This drop is limited to 30 units of the Coco Pearl finish only.
The Model 31 borrows elements from some of Franklin-Christoph’s past models, and adds a new pocket clip and a small air chamber that allows the nib to stay wet and ready to write. Its fluted section is reminiscent of the Model 40 Panther, the block threads resemble those on the Model 19, and the three cut grooves are similar to the two cut grooves on the Model 20. This new pen also has the precision posting of the Model 03, meaning that the interior of the cap has been shaped to fit with a half-inch of contact on the end of the barrel so that the posting is very secure.
